    Not currently. At this time, iChat does not support animated buddy icons.

    That's silly. I would think it would be supported, it would make sence.

    there is an app that lets you use a gif as your icon. it basically refreshes your icon with a new picture every second or so. but that could get annoying for people on 56k because refreshing your icon would take up their bandwidth.

    i can't remember the name of the app, but i'm sure Google would have it.
