  Adium
Adium was originally created by a college student named Adam Iser, and the first version, 1.0, was released in September 2001.
The latest official 1.x release of Adium -- not making use of libgaim, and limited to the AIM protocol -- was version 1.6.2c in September 2002; work on 1.x mostly stopped with the beginning of the development of a new version.
One aspect that didn't change between Adium 1.x and Adium X is the massive use of modules: Most of Adium's functionality comes from plugins; the core program by itself does very little.

 Adium vs iChat - Battle Royale - "Would you like prize with that?"
Adium is probably the winner in terms of U.I. customization as you can do almost anything you would like (and if you can't change it all you have to do is code in the ability to change it).
Adium 2.0 is being actively developed, and it will be released later this year (and you can even use it now, if you have the OS X developer tools- sourceforge.net/projects/adium - it's somewhat usable, but not really ready for everyday use).
Adium is an unsupported (by AOL) 3rd-party client, and as such, not privy to all the features that AOL reserves for its primary chat servers.

 In My Experience... | Choosier geeks choose Adium. (683)
Adium seems to be the power user's choice seemingly for being unobtrusive and handling many chat sessions at once.
New IMs in Adium are non obtrusive (partially because I replaced the sounds with less obtrusive sounds) whereas in iChat, the scrolling, and bubbles, and the generally more kinetic interface make the interruption more powerful than what I experience with Adium.
Adium is by far (imho) the cleanest app with the least amount of required maintenance.

Adium is an application that, like GAIM, can connect and chat with a variety of other applications — AIM, MSN, Jabber, Yahoo, etcetera.
In short — Adium is definitely the instant messaging program that you should be using on your Mac.
But Adium is definitely cool, as it is also built from libGaim, and anything by the Gaim open source developers is truly a gem.

 The Apple Blog » Interview: Evan Schoenberg on Adium
A year later, Adium is getting better and better, and the more commonly complained about bugs are getting taken care of, and the feature set is growing.
Adium can be controlled at a fairly basic level already, but finer control along with two-way communication via handling plugins would allow a lot of neat expansions, many of which we’d probably never even know were great until an enterprising user/coder came up with them.
I’d love for Adium (and Gaim and Trillian for that matter) to have numbers in a range which would outperform the official clients… but without a GetFirefox-style campaign, that’s not going to happen, and even then it’s mostly savvy users and friends/family/unwitting victims of savvy users who would switch.

 alexking.org: Blog > Adium
Adium has been floating about since the early days of OSX as a super lightweight AIM client.
However, it does sound like Adium is catching up with features such as meta-contacts in future releases so maybe I’ll take another look in the future.
Hey brian w, Adium actually does have a menu bar item (I think it might be on by default with 0.7 maybe).

 MacGamer - Get In The Game
A little over a year ago, Adium started to undergo a major rewrite from the ground up, and since that point, Apple released iChat, other clients (such as Proteus) came out and Adium eventually fell by the wayside for many people.
Adium doesn't stop there; one of the coolest features I've seen in any program (although admittedly one that didn't start in Adium) is the web-based message viewing.
If any of these features are important, then Adium may not be for you, but for me it's once again become my favorite IM client on any platform.

 MacGamer.net Discussion Board -> Adium vs. iChat   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Both iChat and Adium are AIM clients that connect to the million user network.
Sure, Adium has groups, but you can't customize them or even disable them without changing the group setup in the address book.
Sure, Adium is customizable and you can write modifications to let it do anything you want, but iChat comes fully capable of being a good AIM client for the average user, without the extra hassle of getting new features just to have a decent client.

 Adium X 0.71 | 5 Star Shareware
Adium X is a very nice multi-protocol instant messaging client for Mac OS X, supporting AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, and ICQ.
While the apparent step backward (from version 1.6.2) might seem a bit odd, versions 0.50 and later are the culmination of a year-long rewrite of Adium, which now utilizes libgaim (the core part of gaim) to connect to multiple protocols, and is also based on a new plugin architecture.
Adium X is licensed as freeware and is therefore free to

Adium 2.0a1 (pre-alpha, really) should be released as source code today.
It may take awhile to get Adium set up as you like, as nearly everything is available via a preference or setting, but once you do, it's a joy to use.
Adium's plug-in architecture will allow interested coders to work within a framework in which a single, very simple idea (text to speech, perhaps, or customized alert sounds, or whatever) can be coded within a day, and built upon, and refined.

Formerly one of the most popular and customizable third-party clients for AOL Instant Messager, Adium faded from the public eye during development.
Part of what made the original Adium so attractive was its multitude of options, which still forms the core of this revision.
Despite some quirks, Adium X should please fans of the original and snare new chat aficionados.

I’ve used lots of different instant-messaging clients, but I must say that I’ve never been as impressed by any of them as quickly as I’ve been impressed by Adium.
Adium is a free AIM client, written by Adam Iser.
It’s lean, small, and very fast, which are reasons enough for it to replace my default OS X messenger client.

Ok, since I had to talk about IM clients, Bill had to mention Adium to me, as others have, and I figured it was time to take a look.
There are a few things I think Fire does better, but I’m willing to give Adium a try, especially since I can use more than one account per service, which was my biggest complaint with Fire.
The only time I use iChat is when I need to receive or send a file - Adium’s file sharing is somewhat broken since it uses the libgaim library for that connectivity.

The Adium Team writes "The Adium team has updated Adium, its free multi-service instant messaging client for Mac OS X. The 0.7 update includes a major revamp of the contact list, improved group chat support, contact grouping, Rendezvous support and numerous other additions and improvements.
Adium supports all the major instant messaging services -- AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber, ICQ, and more -- and features an attractive, customizable interface." I've been using the 0.7 betas since before they were betas (compiling from the subversion repository with ProjectBuilder is easy), and highly highly highly recommend this 0.7 release.
At this point, I believe Adium to be the best multi-protocol IM client on OS X. NOTE: I realize there are other big changes in Adium.7 (e.g.
