As you may notice, Google Talks can use skins and avatars now. So, I thought that I could give a try and create a new skin for Google Talk. It mimics the way iChat messaging window looks like. It is not pixel perfect (I do not currently own a Mac, so I do not really know how does such window behave, but soon). Please feel free to distribute it.

Download: iChat-1.0.zip

Installation: Unzip to C:/Documents and Settings/{user name}/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Google Talk/themes/user/chat/

Create this directory if needed.

Also please do send comments, and what would be best, screens of iChat on your desktop (even on a Mac, so I can change the notification popups!).

And here is a screenshot:
