A number of different instant messaging networks are now in use. As a result, it is possible that friends or acquaintances use an IM network that you do not use. Therefore, programs have been developed that support multiple IM networks. For the Mac OS X operating system, the Fire application is available and supports the following IM networks: AOL, Apple Rendezvous, ICQ, MSN Messenger, Jabber, limited IRC, and Yahoo. The development team has released version 1.5.5 with the following release notes:
Announcing version 1.5.5 of Fire, the multi-protocol IM application for Mac OS X. The main feature in this release is the addition of a Universal binary which supports the new Intel based Macintosh computers announced today. A few critical bugs in AIM, MSN, and TextToSpeech were also fixed in this release.
This release works on Mac OS versions 10.2.8 and above.
