iChat Pro simplifies iChat's interface

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.

    iChat Pro name = lawsuit?

    I don't think Apple will let them get away with that name for long. They better name it something else.

    Looks nice tho.. I will try it tonight when I get back to my beloved Mac.

    iChat wasn't simple to use already?

    Re: simple

    They aren't making it 'simple to use', but 'simplifying the interface' (that is, removing clutter, extraneous c***, stuff a massive iChatter might call 'fluff').
