Wow. Thought the day would never come. Too bad I stopped using Adium a while ago.

Yeah, it's pretty big, always has been quite nicely eaten. Libpurple, the core library Adium uses, alone is already 13 MB, and that's just code.

This all sounds brilliant, but I still see there is no way to have either the menu in status bar or the dock icon, rather than both.

I think some people (including myself) kind of moved away from Adium due to lack of development... I hope this is a sign that things will go back to normal soon.

From what I'm seeing people are moving away from desktop-based IM altogether. Things like iMessage, BlackBerry Messenger, WhatsApp, FaceBook Chat took its place.

I'm still using desktop-based IMs on a regular basis. Although most of the time I'm using Skype rather than one of the protocols supported by Adium.

Yeah... I just do everything by text message or Facebook. Occasionally I use Skype for video chat, but more often I'll just use a phone call.

Most IM protocols seem to have been replaced by "always on" modes of communication like text and (to a lesser extent) Facebook.

Agreed, though when I log onto MSN once in a while to see who's on, I'm surprised at the number of people who still use it. I just don't go on because I feel no need to be in real-time contact with these people like I used to be. I much prefer emails or facebook messages now because they allow me to take my time to respond.

Though I still use Skype regularly... not because I want to, but because we use it at work.

I was talking in general and about what I see happening in my surroundings. I didn't say nobody uses desktop-based IM anymore.

Get Dock Dodger, if you want menu-only. (Y)

I use it with quite some applications and it works a treat! :)

I still keep it around because I have two hardcore people who still insist on using AIM and MSN where as most (99%) of my contacts are now using Facebook these days (both messaging and the chat function). I don't think that instant messaging is dying but rather people are wanting said functionality being tied into a larger social experience which is where Facebook comes into play. What I'd like to see is them submit their app to the AppStore - I'd be happy to shell out the US$100 or so to get their project registered for a developer account because it would be way one to raise the profile of the project and maybe get more people interested in contributing to it - even if the contributions are on an on-off basis.

@Mr Nom Nom - It is true, IM'ing is disappearing. Everyone txts and/or use Facebook Messenger. And lots of folks are using their cell phones for FB messenger now.

Facebook actually released a standalone Facebook Messenger app for iOS. There were a lot of negative reviews that the app didn't let you know who was online or offline. It is clear that Facebook is trying to step away from the "chit-chat" model that is only accessible if both parties are actively on a chat system and move more into a message delivery system that resembles txt messaging. I wouldn't be surprised if their "online" status disappears from their web site soon too.

It makes sense to me, anyway.

I used Adium for years but switched to Trillian lately and apart from the lack of UI customising, I prefer it. Really, the only thing I'd like to change in Trillian is the background of the chat windows to something other than white.

Just out of interest what would then happen to notifications if I receive a message?

Get Growl, cause honestly, no dock icon, no place to go for the bumping/flashing/name display.

You can set up menu bar notifications, though if I recall correctly.
