    For Aim for MAC, when you type messages you have to use the mouse to click send message, thats default. how can i change it to use the enter button?

    I use iChat and I hit the return key to send a message. That is how it works in AIM too. Which program are you using?

    I hate the official version of aim.. Too many ads and a crowded interface... that's why I love my mac. Unfortunately, most of my friends just don't seem to understand that simplicity is a good thing. :(

    You DONT use iChat because of the camera features? Wait, I'm confused... you can turn them off if you want, or you know -- just not plug a camera in. WTF, iChat is way better than any other AIM client on OSX

    Adium doesn't support webcams yet though, does it? I use it for Yahoo and MSN... I like the custom soundsets you can get for it.

    Uhh... if you want video then you have to use iChat.

    I've never found webcams to be useful at all.

    I only use iChat when I specifically want to videoconference, otherwise it's adium. It's not an inconvenience at all... in fact I prefer to have it separate from my normal IM sessions.

    Adium and iChat for me. My iSight is the greatest thing in the world living 1,400 miles from my gf, I can talk to her for free every night.

    We have half a dozen iSights in my family because we're all moving apart (aka growing up).

    Free long distance :bigthumb:
