Pidgin is a multi-protocol Instant Messaging client that allows you to use all of your IM accounts at once.
One of the frustrating things about IM networks is that you can’t really choose what networks your friends use and you can end up stuck with whatever they are using.

Here you got the new release of pidgin, this multi messenger client. Enjoy ;)
