I'm looking for an alternative to Skype. I really am not pleased with the new changes they've made and have been having connection issues (freezing video and audio cut-out).
The article I read about Mac Basics: iChat states that you can initialize an iChat account by using any account you have with AIM, MobileMe, Mac.com, Yahoo, Google Talk, or Jabber yet when I open up iChat to get an iChat account, Yahoo is not an option anywhere. So, I'm confused.
Is that a new addition or simply an error in the article? I do have a Yahoo account I could use to set up an iChat account. I think I would prefer that to having to set up yet another account to set up an iChat account.
Does anyone know? I will be using iChat strictly on my desktop. I do not have a smartphone or tablet of any kind. (No iPad, iPhone, iPod, etc.)
Also, does anyone have any preference to what type of account I should use? (That is, if I have to set up an AIM or Google Talk or whatever.) What's the best in terms of security, privacy issues, reliability, and such? Any guidance would be most appreciated.
