Is there anything for OSX that resembles Trillian for Windows? I really like that trillian allows you to log in to multiple services very simply and easily.
Thanks in advance,

There's three that I know of: Adium, Fire, and Proteus.

I like Proteus. I like the overall look and it even has an ichat look. The only concern is that it displays all chats in a tabbed window. But that isnt too bad.
I didn't really like adium or fire. They just didnt fit my UI taste, but you may like them. Proteus is however shareware but its just a nag screen so it isnt too bad.

I use Adium. Used to use Fire and I like how customizable it is, plust updates are quite frequent.

another vote for adium.
go check their their website
for the latest release. you'll find several screenshots of the upcoming
version 0.64 in the forum which features a rewritten contactlist (pretty++). it's opensource too.
