Chatting in a single application!

A great tip submitted by Nessuno: Chatting in a single application! iChat is a great chat application, but is that really what you are looking for? Not really. Your friends are probably all using different instant messaging applications: AIM, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ, Yahoo. I already talked about a similar application that brings all the different provider in one, Adium. What qNext is great at is to share your music, photos and files with your friends. qNext is a cross-platform instant messaging app that brings all the different service providers in one while offering video, audio and loads of other features! You can learn more and download qNext here. Thanks for the tip Nessuno!

Okay... you have to make a Qnext account. I'll stick with iChat.

It is so strange... Ok, I'll give it another try later, but so far I prefer Adium...

Mercury Messenger also allows you to chat to all contacts on different programs, with video and file sharing capabilities, with your existing account.

DAN: yes but you can use your MSN, AOL, Yahoo, ect, accounts too and then import your contacts in qNext.
CASSIO: Adium is more "friendly" but I submited qNext because you can share files too with it.
HAGA DUMMY: Yes, I tried and it work but there are some problem using iChat with a Jabber gateway to chat with MSN contacts for example: you don't have video/audio chat and in the contact list you can't read people nicks but only their e-mail and sometime I don't "recognize" people ;)
JAMES: Yes but with Mercury you can't chat with MSN, Yahoo, AOL, etc contacts.

I dunno... it had some pretty iffy stuff in the EULA, like about delivering advertising and collecting personally identifiable information like name, address, city, phone number... It had a big long EULA so I figured they were hiding something in there.

hey guys do you know of any programs that will let you video chat cross platform? I can't get MSN to video chat on my macbook and I have a friend who is in Iraq, and he can video chat sometimes, and I'd like to be able to chat with him but he's only able to use MSN.
