And lately Adium also used to have a fork project, called “Metal Adium” which has a new theme looking classic than before. For a few messenger clients, special plugins are required, which can be found at Adium Xtras.
So enjoy chatting through Adium for multiple messengers, not opening different messaging softwares to make the mac slower!
