    Mercury lets you chat with other clients :)

    AIM webchat on PC works with iChat on a Mac...

    For video chatting, Skype works well too (and runs on both Windows and OS X). I've had a lot better luck with Skype in low-bandwidth situations than iChat.

    Skype does seem to be the most problem free Mac<->PC AV chatting option.

    I'm also a big fan of Adium ( http://www.adiumx.com/ )
    It's a multi chat client so you can chat over msn, aim, icq, yahoo, etc on it.
