I'm using Proteus on Leopard, and I don't see message history being populated. I check history of the contacts I talked to yesterday, and it's blank. The "enable history on this account" is turned on both on my ICQ account and my jabber account. What am I missing?

The best IM i've never used !
Today, i'm still using it ; with its add-on Proteus menu (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/15418/proteusmenu), the Mac OS integration is great !

Any idea how to make Proteus my default IM? Adium keeps popping up when I click a Twitter chat URL. I am using OS X Tiger.

The default messenger is set in the iChat Preferences under general.

Some prefer its looks (not me), its insides are outdated.

Proteus (like iChat) can run in background (with a daemon). Not Adium !

Great app, and I've paid for this when it was shareware but it seems it has been abandoned.

I hope it's retaken soon, it hasn't received any major updates in a long time. Either that or I can see its death already coming... :-/

If you add support for connecting to Google's Gmail Chat, I'll give it a chance.
