    I like iChat a lot. but one thing that really annoys me is that the only why to make an alias is to make and Address Card entry out of the person. Then it shows there first and last name. Do anyone know of a way I could have it show either the first name, or another name that I specify (w/o making it an address book entry)?

    I haven't used iChat extensively since mid-panther (I use Adium now) but at least back then the kind of customization you want was not possible. I suggest looking into Adium, it's excellent.

    I'm with this guy. Adium rocks. Only thing I have a problem with is direct connecting with people. But that was before last weeks update. So that might be fixed.

    I have used adium and like it a lot. But overall iChat is better for me. The only thing about iChat I don't like is the inflexible buddy naming.
