I bought new MAC recently, I want to have gtalk in that and i did google search for that and came to a conclusion that we dont have a MAC version of gtalk. Is there any alternate way to have gtalk in my MAC?
Thanks in advance.

The link is for older version of iChat...  you can use it as a reference.

It's super easy with the new version...
iChat come with your Mac and usually in the dock.  If it's not, just open it from the application folder.
a wizard will open...  you will need to choose "google talk" as the account type and your gmail username/password.
Click Continue until you exist the wizard.
