It would be great if you could turn on and off notification sounds for chats and IM’s. Like, after you open the chat, there could be a bar at the top of the chat window with the image of a bell, and you can click it to toggle notifications on and off. And of course, when notifications are off, make it a bell with a diagonal slash through it (or something like that) to indicate that notifications are off. Oh, and also in the settings, you would be able to set as your default whether you receive notification sound alerts for IMs or not. And perhaps, when you turn off notifications from a certain user, it stays like that for that user until you turn it back on, or maybe until you log off. And then there can be an option in the settings to reset all IM notifications to default, which would revert sound notifications for IM’s from all people to the default setting. But anyway, just sound notifications for messages in general would be a great improvement, because then I can multitask and switch screens and still respond right away when someone sends me a message. Yeah, that would be great.
