iChat Pro interface
Infinis Design recently unveiled iChat Pro, a reskinning feature for Apple's iChat application that simplifies the user interface to be more compact. Designed for users that are comfortable with using right-click contextual menus to navigate the application's functions, iChat Pro removes the somewhat redundant communication buttons at the bottom of the buddy list, and trims extraneous features from the top. iChat Pro is free to install for all users of iChat.
Designer Philipp Antoni recommends users backup iChat prior to install, so that the process can be reversed, if desired, since iChat is not available as a separate download, apart from the Mac OS X install process.
