    Well i know many people have compalints about iChat but it also has its fans. I have a small problem and i'm wondering if there is a shortcut or way around it. Whenever I copy and paste a link from any browser and put it in the iChat window it never works for the people I send it to. I could copy and paste http://www.macrumors.com and they would click on it and it would be a dead page or it wouldn't load. Is there a reason this happens when i'm linking people who are using clients other than ichat (i.e aim aol fire) Thanks Kwyjibo
    I"m using x.2.4 in case that matters

    that's odd. i don't have such problems with normal pages, but when i send a link with something like an & in it, it converts it int "'and'" or something stupid like that. i just tell people to copy the text of the link into an IE window and apologize. it's clearly an error between AIM and iChat or just an internal iChat bug that converts the symbols of a link all wrong. i don't know why it does it though. i just deal with it. sorry.
