    With MWSF right around the corner, I'd love to get some feedback on everyones favorite (or not) chat application including suggestions to make it better. I'll start with a few of my dream ichat enhancements -

    1. A single contact list. I don't want 1 list for AIM 1 list for Jabber and 1 List for Rendezvous. I would love to see a single contact list open. I would also like the ability to combine contacts ala Adium style.

    2. Improve Mac-to-PC video conferencing - its a hit or miss kind of system

    Side note - why doesn't apple just release a PC version of iChat AV? Any ideas?

    More suggestions:

    1) Auto-accept incoming messages, at the very least from people in my buddy list.
    2) Tabbed messaging, I just recently started using Adium and I love only having one window for all my conversations
    3) When you hold your mouse over an persons name, it shows there away message until you move it away. Sometimes people have long messages and I have to move away and back again because iChat fades it away before i am done reading.
    4) show animated icons, I don't use them but some friends like to make there own and i can never see the whole thing, but maybe it is a good thing, less movement on the screen

    That's about it for now
