Instant Messaging

In this day and age we all have have at least one instant messaging service we belong to. However, not everyone belongs to the same one. A long time ago AOL and ICQ were the big ones. Now we have MSN, Yahoo and a host of others meaning you have to sign into each of them and making it a mess in terms of applications running on your computer. I have been a long time fan of Meebo which runs online with no software to install and combines AOL, MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, ICQ, and Jabber in one place. Just today, while browsing around I found Pidgin which combines 16 chat services into one. I have just installed it and will review it as soon as I start to put it to use and see if it's worth it.
