Pidgin

While Facebook chat in your browser is all very well, and the desktop Facebook messenger is nice, it’s getting cumbersome to have all the chat clients installed and running – you never know where you are.

Pidgin, on the other hand, is a nice open source chat client that handles Facebook, MSN, Yahoo, AOL, Gadu-Gadu… nearly all the major chat networks. It’s always evolving, and so far the Windows version looks nice and stable so far. OK, it doesn’t handle video chat, but it’s nice and stable, all chats are in the same window – regardless of which chat network you use – and it’s friendly, easy to set up, and doesn’t require an account set up on their servers. And with no advertising – true open source – it’s great. Does a single job – text based instant messaging, across as many networks as you like, with file transfers – and does it well. Highly recommended
