Reviews

“The IM features are unimpeachable: smileys, file transfers, and multiperson chats. The Buddy Pounce feature lets you automatically perform certain actions (play a sound, execute a command, open an IM window) when a contact signs on or off. Pidgin also gets lots of intangibles right: logging and time-stamping [...] Pidgin remains a highly recommended text-only messaging app.”

 

“The Best Free Software of 2012. The open-source, multi-protocol Pidgin works with IM networks big and small, with plug-ins for many others.”
