I've been very pleased with the features, regularity of updates, and overall look and feel of Adium. Only complaint I've got with it right now is it seems like right around the time I upgraded to Tiger 10.4 and the time Adium started supporting encrypted "secure chat" features - I started getting a lot of errors causing the application to quit in the middle of using it.
I can't quite pinpoint what causes it, but it seems like it tends to "blow up" more often if I've been doing a secure chat with someone in my "buddy list" and then I close their chat window up, but leave Adium running for a while (maybe even overnight or something). The next time they try to chat with me, it will often say it's re-establishing a session using the existing secure session and then I type 1 or 2 lines of text and it crashes.

But funny aye, a friend sent me a screen shot of her MSN chat (windogs of course), was taking up about 85% of her screen. I sent her a screen shot of Adium and set as 50% transparent on my screen, she was shocked ::ha::
Damrod said:That sounds really interesting... May I ask how you have configured your contact list style so that it appears that way? I'm looking for an alternative to the Mockie/3-Tone-Coloring style, but have not yet found a suiting one.
