Software Product Description

Pidgin is a multi-protocol instant messaging client for Linux, BSD, MacOS X, and Windows. It is compatible with AIM (Oscar and TOC protocols), ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo, IRC, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, and and more chat networks.

Pidgin users can log in to multiple accounts on multiple IM networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on AOL Instant Messenger, talking to a friend on Yahoo Messenger, and sitting in an IRC channel all at the same time.

Pidgin supports many features of the various networks, such as file transfer (coming soon), away messages, typing notification, and MSN window closing notification. It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. A few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to notify you, send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a specific buddy goes away, signs online, or returns from idle; and plugins, consisting of text replacement, a buddy ticker, extended message notification, iconify on away, and more.

Supported chat networks:

  • AIM
  • Bonjour
  • Gadu-Gadu

  • Groupwise
  • ICQ
  • IRC
  • MSN
  • MySpaceIM
  • QQ

Pros: ok for i.m. irc etc.

Cons: need plugins for themes before downloading themes need irc account before signing in to chatroom could go on...rather not.

Other Thoughts: was not able to download and install newest non portable version on windows 8.1 was able to install portable version instead.
