Replace The Glossy Text Bubbles In iChat With Something Less Aqua-ey



I’ve never particularly cared for iChat. It’s less full-featured than free alternatives like Adium, and since it can’t easily be skinned, if you hate all the bubbles and aqua in the UI, there’s not a lot you can do about it. Luckily, over at OS X Daily, they’ve put together a fantastic and simple way to replace the iChat Aqua Text Bubbles with a flatter, less idiosyncratic matte version. Check it out: this is really the way iChat should look by default.

    Oh, look at that. No downloads, no video tour, no point in Brownlee’s posts.

    Because who wouldn’t want something that looks so 1996. How ’bout coming up with a fix for that Lenovo as pop up that can’t be dismissed when visiting your site with an iPad. Let’s give that a try, ok?
