iChat? Psh. Hell no.

So I found out iChat supports Jabber now, which is one of many initial reasons I decided I needed to shop around for a new client (at first, Fire, and now Adium X).

Well, apparently like two weeks after I went with Fire, Jabber must have updated.

Anyway, so I thought I'd try out iChat, just to see.

Well after using Adium, iChat is just horrible. There's virtually no customizability. Your messages pop up in balloons. There's nothing you can do about that.

Adium, on the other hand, lets you customize pretty much every single thing you can think of. And it connects to everything but IRC. So I have Colloquy. It's also a great program.

Anyway, Adium is out of beta. If you run Mac, use it!
