The Age ignores Digsby
The Age, Melbourne’s broadsheet, had an article in their thursday tech section outlining the best muli-protocol IM clients for Windows. They showed Trillian, Pidgin and Miranda – but not Digsby. When I’m in windows this is what I use – it’s not open source, but it’s run by a cool group of people who update it and post on their blog regularly. The thing that has always bugged me about the three IM clients mentioned in the article is the interface. I love Pidgin in Linux because it fits in so well, but it’s always felt awkward in Windows. It’s hard to describe and I can’t be bothered downloading and installing trillian and miranda right now, but Digsby “feels” nicer. Plus, its integration with Facebook and GMail is superb.
Anyone who chats on Windows should check it out.
