YAY I love messenger updates! lol that's the one thing that i hate about macs. but anywho yay! lol

Since apple came out with iChat i rarely use msn or yahoo to chat anymore they seem so insignificant compared to the features in iChat.

Adium is a great app for instant messaging on a Mac. Clean, simple and very customizable. It allows you to chat with a variety of different messenger clients.
For live audio chats, id recommend Skype since it is supported on Mac, PC, and Linux. The audio quality is great and very rarely cuts out even on a dial-up internet connection.
