Version 2


iChat Icon

These iChatAV (Version 2) pages are coloured Green and have the iChat 2 icon on them that was in use at the time, so you know where you are. The icon differs from Version 1 by having the camera logo added.

1[8] 01 iChat 2 Menu Oct 2008

This is the iChat 2 Applciation Menu and as I have shown, by leaving it poking out to the left, it is the one top left next to the Apple Menu icon.

Most often you will use this to access the Preferences and to Log in or Out of one or other of the "Services". By Services I mean either AIM or the Rendezvous way of Instant Messaging with Text, Audio or Video.

The actual Services option is to link iChat with various parts of the OS if they will.

It has a Link to a page at Apple about providing Feedback. The page itself allows you to choose drop downs to specify which OS version and which iChat Version and a free text box to expalin the issue or make "Wish List" Statements. It should be noted though there are unlikely to be any changes to Panther or iChat 2 at this time.

Although there is a Shop for Product links I have never known it lead anywhere in any version.

There are two options to Hide ether all the iChat windows that are open or windows of Other apps.

About This Page

The Application Menu. It just reads iChat and does not specify here that it is IChat 2. That is in the About iChat option.


Confirmed to work with Win/IE 5.5 and later (should work in 5.0, but not confirmed), Firefox 2, Safari 3, Opera 9, iCab 3.02 and later, Mac/IE 5, Netscape 6 and later

Old browsers (IE version 4 or earlier, Netscape 4 or earlier) should only see a text-based page which, while not the prettiest option, is still entirely usable.
