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 !

Some prefer its looks (not me), its insides are outdated.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

The registration software has been removed. So, we won't be bugged anymore about payment. Free as in beer.

braindancer had trouble on 07 Aug 2009
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?

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.

I liked this programm (earlier version) very much until i ran into problems with conference chats. I wasn't able to establish conversations with two or more people. Does anyone have a hint to solve this?

By the way: I experienced the same kind of problem with Fire and Adium as well.
