Adium Crushes Every Windows IM Client

So, recent job switch. No longer at Demand, and no longer on Mac. Windows is mandatory. Once again I quest for software that doesn’t suck. I’ve tried Pidgin, Trillian, and now digsby, and all are AWFUL when compared to the beautiful, elegant Adium.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what my requirements are.

  • Clean interface. This means the tabs, the buddy list font size, and the icons.

  • Searchable buddy list. This is incredibly elegant in Adium. You just type and hit enter.

  • Support for Google Talk, Yahoo, and AIM

Before you point out that Adium is based on Pidgin, I already know this. My issue is mostly with the UI.

Sigh… suggestions are encouraged.
