Well I am so glad you asked! We just found ourselves head over heels on valentines day and the object of our affection is Digsby. No Digsby is not some strange foreign chick.
Digsby is a multi-client instant messenger. It can do Gtalk, AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Jabber. This is what we have been looking for! I hate having to open separate clients to chat with friends. Finally one client to rule them all - I hope it stays free!!!
On top of all that it has a widget for your website to allow users to interact with you like Plugoo. Check it out on the side bar right now...
As a client it has slick pop-ups and looks great!
It can check your email for you and lets you customize your client to suit your needs. Digsby is in Beta right now and is available only via a "Beta Invite Code"
But we found one that seems to work every time!Digsby gave us 1000 invites so share them with your friends!
Download the Digsby beta from here. Use beta code AskTheAdmin for downloading Digsby. Set up a username and password, add your accounts and you will chatting with the best of them in no time!
Check out this information from their website.
