    gChat with iChat
    I didn't even know iChat could tap into Google's gChat, but using Jabber, it apparently can.

    Here is the link to the instructions.

    They're very clear and work perfectly.

    I use gChat (with Firefox) at work all of the time, but I have a few friends that stay at home and don't want to keep a Firefox (gChat doesn't support Safari) window open. So, I found this tut on Google's help pages and figured some of my fellow Mac-Foruminians could benefit from it. :mac:

    Is that the proper way to say it? "Mac-Foruminians"? :p
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Sounds like a cool idea but the link directs me to iBackup.

    Mac-Foruminians lol
