It's like AT&T not having the same phone service. And especially if they can control Apple and iChat AV. Apple should add Jabber, ICQ, possibly MSN if they allow full or almost full implementation (or they can achieve this through open source stuff), and Yahoo. Maybe even IRC without the IRC. The point would be the put them all in iChat transparently. IRC especially is just fscking annoying to use. Spam, weird commands, programs with horridly complicated interfaces like ircle. And eventually make the AV of iChat AV compatible. Well one can hope.
open up a little..since their client is the slowest and the only Carbon one!
Proteus costs money, so I'm not saying anything else about that
Fire, well, it's a good client. The font size getting too small annoys me though (it gets too small to read when someone sends a small font size), and you can't set a default font color.
iChat is working its way toward being a good client. Talk needs to be supported in more areas than iChat AV-iChat AV, we should be able to send at least a font color to people who don't use iChat
, and we should be able to create profiles for ourself. Of course, I still use it
And Adium..well, it's low featured at the moment.
