Pidgin is a great instant messenger. The only thing missing is the ability to use voice messaging. I do hope it will be added in the near future.
Please expend a modicum of effort. Pidgin conveys voice media via RTP and may conduct session via SIP or Jingle.
So, where is mac version?
oups, here it is: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pidgin-macosx/
I looked for a while for something like this, and no other application I found could connect me to all of the chats I wanted to be in at the same time. It's a great way to keep in touch with all my friends on different IM clients in one central location. The biggest thing that set it apart for me is that you can not only connect to all the major IM clients, but to Facebook, GoogleTalk and IRC as well.
I love this app. You know it's awesome if it's included in Linux Mint.
Liked the program a lot, but did not like the fact that my account information including passwords were stored in a plain text file.
Its really good. None of the problems listed does occur for me.
using it with MSN messenger accounts.
I use Pidgin, as I haven't found a better client that fulfills the same purpose as Pidgin well.
I must, however, say that it is quite unstable and buggy in my experience.
