10.3: Reduce the default size of the iChat window Apps
I love iChat, but I really wish the default window size was a bit smaller. So, after searching on here for hours, and not being able to find anything, I played around, and finally figured it out.

Open up the Applications folder, Control-click on iChat, and select Show Package Contents. A new Finder window will open. Select Resources, then English.proj and then ChatDoc.nib. Make a copy of this file, in case you screw up. Double-click on ChatDoc.nib; you'll need XCode installed to do this.

Once you have it open, you will see a grey window that is the same size as the default iChat window, with a blue square that says "CustomView." If you click on this blue square, you'll see a little square at each corner. Drag the one in the lower right until the square is the size you want it. Then drag the window to match, and save.

Restart iChat and start chatting. Yippee!
