Pidgin 2.0 is what was to be GAIM 2.0 , after a string of betas it was revealed that AOL was harassing their engineers. So they decided to change the name of the product in a  settlement with AOL.the new Pidgin is simple fast and effective and i am happy to state it was able to replace successfully MSN Messenger, Yahoo messenger and Gtalk, which are now no longer on my machine. It supports the following protocols 

  • AIM
  • Bonjour
  • Gadu-Gadu
  • Google Talk
  • Groupwise
    • ICQ
    • IRC
    • MSN
    • QQ
    • SILC
    • SIMPLE
    • Sametime
    • XMPP
    • Yahoo!
    • Zephyr

    I also love their new mascot, they realise that cute is in !
