I’m an instant messaging junkie. Mostly I use the IM in Skype but I can also be seen on the AOL IM platform through iChat. I know lots of folks that also use GoogleTalk, Yahoo’s IM offering, and so forth. This means, in general, these folks will have many different IM clients open.
Adium (sound like a new cholesterol drug) allows you to access many services in a single client rather than having multiple windows open.
Adium does not support video or audio–no calling home on the cheap using it. However the handiness of NOT having multiple applications seems like it might be good.
Adium is only for MacOS X.
