A Powerful Cross-Platform IM Tool - Pidgin

Version reviewed 2.10.11 on: 10 Feb 2015
  • Currently 4.25/5

 Started as an instant messaging software based on AOL protocols for supporting chat, file transfer and much more, it evolved into a completely cross-platform tool. It was initially called gaim (small letters) backed by technocrats from AOL and developed by a sophomore in Auburn University. It was an integration of GTK and AOL messenger application. It was the first attempt at creating a complete open-source based instant messaging platform with the core written in Perl, Python and C. It was quite late that it was renamed to pidgin and got its aesthetically designed user interface which makes it fun to use.

 From Linux to All

 Pidgin supports all major internet protocols to allow secure transfer of messages, pictures and a lot of functionality can be customized by every user as it is open-source. A feature called Buddy Pounces is an automated script that allows users to connect to other users in customized ways. The version currently supports Windows, Linux, AmigoOS and all that can be added to it by developers around the world. It can add all types of IRC channels through its genuine protocols other IM chats. The friends are called as buddies and every buddy can be customized to your chat preferences. Instead of using multiple protocols for a single contact separately, one can group all these protocols that belong to a single contact and manage them much more efficiently. There is stuff for professional users too, where with the support of NSS, it allows encrypted client-to-server communication across all the protocols grouped with that particular client. It is extensible through plugins as well, including a feature-plugin called Off-the-Record Messaging that provides end-to-end messaging encryption. It supports voice and video chat relying on Farsight2 using the XMPP protocol including Google Talk. However, the architecture employed here will allow voice and video conversations over both MSN and Yahoo protocols on a peer-to-peer network. In all, there are a lot of options for a technically experienced person to take leverage of that grant it a strong position in today's marketplace in the foreseeable future.
