Pidgin - Instant Messaging

24 Oct 2007 » »

I have started using Pidgin instant messaging.  It consolidates my Google Talk, MSN Messenger, and Yahoo Accounts.  I’ve used Trillian in the past with success but it doesn’t include Google Talk.  I also have Skype for voice messaging.  I hope Pidgin can include that someday.

What does everyone else use?

Garo Yeriazarian: I use Pidgin as well, I’ve been using it since it was called Gaim.

Chris Patterson: I use Adium and Skype. It sure would be nice if Skype was more open to integrate with Adium but I guess that is why Skype works almost everywhere - even places that block most regular im clients.

Jason Meridth: I love Pidgin because it works in Ubuntu (Linux) also. :) I forgot that Pidgin was the Gaim rename. @Chris, I’ll have to check out Adium. Thanks.

Scott Bellware: I use GTalk through Trillian…
