According to Sparkle data (http://www.adiumx.com/sparkle/#osVersion)
you still have about 45% of your user base running on any version of
Tiger, which pretty much amounts to half of Adium users (or at least
of those who have opted in on Sparkle), so I'd say pulling the rug
from underneath them might be a bit too harsh still, in my opinion.
Taking into consideration that by far the largest portion of those are
on 10.4.11 already (40.83% at the time of posting), requiring Safari 3
should not be too much of a hassle.
My 2c. Regards,...
