    Here is my iChat wish list:

    More customisable buddy list
    Tabbed instant message windows
    Window transparency effects
    Easier, and more comprehensive logging
    Ability to talk while away message is on
    Ability to run multiple AIM accounts (cloning)
    MSN style popup notifications
    Ability to talk to people using ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo, and also sign on to MSN, ICQ, and Yahoo accounts
    Fix away message bugs
    Ability to have more in your profile
    Reverse buddy list
    Ability to use the 'AV' part with windows users (not sure if this means Apple has to port iChat to windows, and also iSight?)

    I'm sure there are many more....

    Santa says no.


    OK, yes, by the time this comes out of beta I hope at least half of these things are addressed, especially if they really want to convince people that Panther is worth the upgrade price.

    There are lists like this for all the iApps, unfortunately.

    Can you imagine how much Apple could get done if they had Microsoft's resources? I keep telling ymself it won't always be this way...but cancer is real hard to kill without weakening or killing the host...anyway.

    I think that tabbed chats sound like a great idea. It would be so cool if Apple did this.

    As for the all in one chat client, can Apple really do this? Proteus does it, but I thought there was liscencing issues.

    Basically, I want Apple to add everything that Proteus does to the existing iChat. Then, and only then, will I use iChat.

    It was my understanding that the AV doesn't work with other videoconferencing software.

    And chat with all of my (zero) friends on Yahoo Instant Messenger all the while.

    Doesn't help at all, when all of your friends are on AIM, MSN, and ICQ.
