10.3: Browse PDFs in iChat messages Apps
Not sure if this existed in the beta version of iChat A/V, but I found that if you start an iChat discussion in Panther with a buddy, and then drag a PDF file to that window, a direct connect will start and the PDF will appear as something you've 'said.' You can then browse that PDF inside the iChat window. If it's a text documnet, you really can't 'read' it as it shrinks it too much, but you can scroll thru the whole thing. Even the scroll wheel works on it!

[robg adds: At least in the iChat in Panther, you can read it if you resize the iChat message window - the PDF (any image, in fact) will dynamically resize as you increase the size of the window.]

You can actually drag (is you're the receiver) the document
(image, pdf, file) out of the iChat window and have it saved
on the desktop (or wherever you downloaded it) and look at
it with your favourite app.
