    iChat currently does not have the ability to create profiles. Hopefully they will add this feature in a future version.

    That is probably just the least of my concerns with iChat. It should also recognize carriage returns, it should have an expandable input field (I use iChat enhancer to add these 2 options). It's direct connect ability needs to be improved, it should also not try to display large graphics files in the chat window too.

    I am really annoyed that iChat doesn't have an autoresponse feature...I can do without the profile, but that annoys me because AIM people always think I am online when the message doesn't pop up.
    Also, when people on my buddy list are classified as "idle" there is no way(that I know of) to view their away message...is there some way around this?
    Are there any hacks, or tips anyone has to offer to circumvent these annoyances?

    iChat is still very beta-ish and needs inhancements. Wait for
    an update but until then use another AIM client.
