@sleggat I've used Adium for close to 5 years now and haven't experienced the dropped connections that you speak of. However I must agree and say the file transfers are incredibly slow. So slow I don't even bother accepting them anymore.

While Adium is quite an achievement, I still find it quite infuriating. No other IM client seems to drop connections/timeout as often as Adium. Showing of MSN custom emoticons and users' photos is intermittent. File transfers are painfully slow. Despite having numerous customisation options I just don't like the look/feel of it. Lack of video is a pity too. Adium is great - there is nothing that competes - but it's far from perfect.

Perhaps my favorite chat client on any platform. The fact that I can customize it so very much only sweetens the deal.

Always preferred this over iChat. I love the customization and stability lately.

My only complaint is that it tries to re-connect too early after the machine comes back from sleep. I always get an error message, and it does not retry after the wi-fi comes back up. I have to manually set myself back to available.

It's been really buggy since the v1.0 and was starting to let me down.

Fortuantely, 1.0.4 is reallly good, one of the best apps ever!

The best multiprotocol messenger ever and free!

Absolutely my favorite chat program.
