    I know this must have been commented before but as I couldn't find it in the forums I created a new thread

    Can ichat do this ? Or is there any plugin/bundle that can do this for me?

    Edit: Jeez...I must be slowly down as I get older. :(

    Yeah thanks but I've tried aMSN and I'm not convinced. My MacBook's fans power up and blast away at god knows what speed. And I don't like the webcams being in differet windows as the conversation.

    MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 6.0.3

    I was wondering if anyone has downloaded and used MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 6.0.3. I'm in Utah and everyone uses it here, and I'm very skeptical of putting anything made by Microsoft on my computer. Does MSN Messenger work well? Does it come with any other software besides the Messenger?

    If you're really that sceptical, tried Adium?

    msn messenger work pretty wel actually not buggy, only if i had Safari 3 on, that's why i changed to adium, also adium has many nice feautures that msn messenger doens't have, i think when you download it, it only comes with messenger that's all.

    i switched back to safari 2 for the moment I like it more, hopefully safari will change a little in the next updates, a new look won't harm:p but still keeping it simple.
