    February 28, 2006 at 3:25 pm

  3. Also don´t forget Miranda-IM


    February 28, 2006 at 3:51 pm

  4. mmm I know Miranda has it’s fans but to me it looks really bad… I cannot consider it as my main IM …

  5. Will you review Trillian Basic or Pro???


    February 28, 2006 at 7:24 pm

  6. 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

  7. like me ;) The Pro is 10x better… that Basic

  8. Hmmm never heard of Gush… pretty much used all the others before, not necessarily liked them tho


    February 28, 2006 at 10:27 pm

  9. 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

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


    February 28, 2006 at 10:43 pm

  11. 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

  12. I’m just downloading it now, it looks very nice, it will be in the review.

    Cheers Tec

  13. 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

  14. I use Adium for Mac myself, but would love to see Microsoft update MSN for Mac to the same standard as the Windows one.


    March 1, 2006 at 12:11 am

  15. 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

  16. Atariboy, you notice how they updated messenger? it’s ugly as anything now…


    March 1, 2006 at 1:50 am

  17. Not a download, but you might want to check out
    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

  18. 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

  19. 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

  20. Atariboy, have you tried bitlbee? :)


    March 3, 2006 at 2:26 pm

  21. No i’ve never heard of it? do you have a link?
