iChat 4.0: Tabbed Chat Windows

The version of iChat that comes with Leopard now allows for tabbed chat windows. Instead of having a seperate window open for every chat conversation, you can have one window with a tab for each buddy. This popular feature of Adium is a welcomed addition to iChat.

With OS X 10.5 comes many new iChat features. My favorite is the ability to have tabbed chat windows. Tabbed chat was one of the things that originally drew me to the iChat competitor Adium.

Here is iChat without tabs:

Enabling iChat tabs is easy…

1. Click the iChat menu
2. Select Preferences
3. Select the Messages tab
4. Check Collect chats into a single window

Now the iChat window will be tabbed…
