"The Adium Team is proud to present to you AdiumX 0.51, a multiple protocol instant messaging client. This is a culmination of a year long rewrite of adium, which now utilizes libgaim (the core part of gaim) to connect to multiple protocols, and is also based on a new plugin architecture. Partial address book integration, cool looking tabs, multiple protocols for instant messaging, and a compact contact list are some of the many features of the new Adium X. Give it a try; we're sure you will like it." I don't really use iChat because of my friends in ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN. I used to use Fire but AdiumX is a lot cooler.
