One Chat Client To Rule Them All!

One Chat Client To Rule Them All!

How many instant messaging programs are there? Dozens, upon dozens but the real problem is managing them all. We all have multiple email addresses and use many web portals and email services. Even those that deny it, will likely have at least 2 email accounts. One for your ISP, and at least one for work, or your cell phone even. At the very minimum, we have 2.

The greater problem is managing these your contacts and instant messaging programs. Gmail, Hotmail (Live), AOL, AIM, Yahoo and others all require that you install their software on your pc. Some of them add nasty toolbars - yahoo especially.

Trying to keep up with all these chat clients is maddening, confusing and will definitely cause some lag on your system. The least software you need to install the better.

Fortunately, there is a new all in one instant messaging client called Digsby.

Digsby is a instant messaging client tha/ supports AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber, and Facebook Chat clients. Not only that but it also supports email as well.

More about Digsby can be found here
and best of all its FREE!
