Kent Sutherland’s Chax has been updated to version 2.1b1 adding a Contacts list that consolidates all your “buddies” across all connected accounts.
Back in the Tiger days, Chax offered features like tabbed chat windows that have now been incorporated into Chat’s built-in feature set. Sutherland doesn’t appear to be backing away from Chax in the face of “competition” from iChat 4.0; rather, he has added features like “Auto-accept screen sharing requests” that take iChat’s new features to the next level.
Kent Sutherland has made Chax available for free but I’m sure he would appreciate it if you donated a little something using the PayPal link on his website.
