Adium or Pidgin

These are not generally good recommendations for XMPP desktop clients these days. Both have have experienced slow/inactive development in recent years, and don’t support modern XMPP features such as end-to-end encryption and multi-device synchronization. Pidgin is showing interest in catching up again, but I’ve no idea about plans for Adium’s future.

Good clients to recommend these days: Gajim or Dino (both Linux / Windows) or Beagle (MacOS). There are also web clients such as Movim.

I’m not certain there is a way to make XMPP work as a proper alternative

Can you expand on what makes you think this?
