February 28, 2006 at 3:13 pm
It is on my computer and in the reivew, i just forgot the icon, its in my quick launch normally, i’ll update it when i get home.
February 28, 2006 at 3:25 pm
Also don´t forget Miranda-IM
February 28, 2006 at 3:51 pm
mmm I know Miranda has it’s fans but to me it looks really bad… I cannot consider it as my main IM …

Will you review Trillian Basic or Pro???
February 28, 2006 at 7:24 pm
A little bit of both, but im certainly not going to pay for pro!
I’m sure i can find a way to run it without paying :P
February 28, 2006 at 7:26 pm
like me ;) The Pro is 10x better… that Basic

Hmmm never heard of Gush… pretty much used all the others before, not necessarily liked them tho
February 28, 2006 at 10:27 pm
Gush is pretty new, its currently in beta i think, very web2.0.
Its a Mulitclient IM with a built in feedreader and flickr intergration too.
Looks pretty sweet, havnt got round to trying it out yet

Just downloaded the Mac version and will give it a test drive….

Care to add Easy Message to your review?
The ultra-lite instant messenger for MSN, AOL, ICQ, and Yahoo.
February 28, 2006 at 11:06 pm
I’m just downloading it now, it looks very nice, it will be in the review.
February 28, 2006 at 11:13 pm
Well you should add Adium as a Mac IM… It is a IM client for msn, google talk, jabber, bonjour, yahoo, AOL, ICQ, Lotus, Zephyr, .Mac, Gadu-Gadu, Novel GroupWise.
It is the main client for Mac users, *I think!*
February 28, 2006 at 11:42 pm
I use Adium for Mac myself, but would love to see Microsoft update MSN for Mac to the same standard as the Windows one.

I think Microsoft is going to update Messenger for Mac in March. But, it doesn’t matter. Adium is the best IM for Mac IMHO :)
March 1, 2006 at 1:04 am
Atariboy, you notice how they updated messenger? it’s ugly as anything now…
March 1, 2006 at 1:50 am
Not a download, but you might want to check out http://www.meebo.com
Ajax based messenger, very nice for use on public computers or if IM clients are blocked by your IT dept ;)
March 1, 2006 at 2:05 am
Meebo is going to be included in the webbased section along with mabber, e-messenger, webmsn and any others i find.
March 1, 2006 at 9:27 am
What other IM programmes do you know for Mac? All I can think of is Adium and Proteus (which is now for free!). And I know both. And both of them (as always) have their pros and cons. But I will spread that later on in the comments to your detailed report of the Mac IM review … if necessary.
March 2, 2006 at 11:18 am
Atariboy, have you tried bitlbee? :)
March 3, 2006 at 2:26 pm
No i’ve never heard of it? do you have a link?
