Pidgin is an instant messaging client and multi-protocol chat that allows you to unify several accounts of different programs, with the convenience that implies, that is to say, to have all the contacts together and to be able to chat without having to open the different programs to which Usually the user must connect.
Supports the following programs:
- Google Talk
- MSN Messenger (Allows you to enter multiple MSN Live accounts)
In addition to this list that is quite broad, Pidgin supports plugins that allows you to incorporate other services into the program, such as Skype and Facebook.
It is a practical and comfortable option, and also does not consume too many resources, but obviously you can lose some functionality of each of the customers mentioned.
