    "Love this IM app!"

    July 6, 2012  |   By pfhattkatt

    Pros

    Love how all my IM accounts are combined into one and has my twitter updates as well. Functionally this program has never caused me any issues and has always performed beautifully.

    Cons

    I would not mind having my FB updates viewable as the twitter updates are, but is not a deal breaker and probably better off without it. Not been able to figure out how to tab between chat screens with just a hot key, have to use mouse. Functionally I have had no operating issues to give me a true CON to complain about to date.

    Summary

    LOVE this IM, wish I could get it for my PC. Used trillion for years on the PC and I love this so much better if for no other reason just dependability and trillion was really a resource pig. After using Adium I started doing the pepsi challenge on my PC to find a better IM program to use. NO banner adds, never had a functional issue with the program, not a resource hog, very elegant. I would compare it to a Miranda messager program in terms of operating functionality with much more intelligence requiring less end user set up.
