Digsby Alternatives

Just thought I would throw this post up for the potential to help anyone else out. It seems that Digsby is nice and dead, so I finally got to the point where I started to search for a new IM client that was as much like Digsby that I could find (according to MY tastes). If anyone else out there has any other alternatives that they would like to share, by all means do.

I ended up choosing Pidgin. http://pidgin.im/
I run it with the OTR plugin found here: http://www.cypherpunks.ca/otr/

I can say that I am pretty much right back to where I was with Digsby except I can now use multiple XMPP accounts (OpenFire), which I could not do with Digsby. Almost all other customizations I ended up loving with Digsby have been replicated with Pidgin, so I am pretty happy about it. I am obviously sad to see Digbsy die, but such is life.

Thanks to those who created it. It was awesome while it lasted. smile

Except Pidgin doesn't have the email handling that Digsby does nor does it do Facebook nor Twitter feeds which is what most of us use Digsby for. The only true alternative right now is Trillian.

As to Digsby being dead yes it pretty much is but Aaron has said they are pushing a new alpha out soon.
