    it supports other messenger services other than AIM.. plus it looks really seksi, customizable.

    I think most people here use it anyways

    There appears to be an adium plugin for myspace im:

    http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=xtras&xtra_id=3256

    Sometimes I use Meebo.com (which is a web 2.0 chat client that runs in your browser) when I'm having connectivity problems, but mostly I use Adium. It's the best Mac client out there and it's free.

    You can only talk to other people that have iChat though, right?

    because adium uses gaim code, and DC has never worked with Gaim.
