Now I’m moving to Pidgin for good i guess. Been testing since it first came out but only now I think i can truly move on.
For those yang tak tahu, Pidgin is a chat program which allow user to login to different chat network (Gtalk, YMessenger, Live, ICQ and the list goes on) using only one software. Why this is good? Sebab ia mengurangkan penggunaan processor and memory esp the ever so popular unstable plus resource hogging YMessenger. It is available on Windows, Linux and Unix platform.
So, what is the reason I’m start using Pidgin?
First, the interface isn’t too clunky anymore. It doesn’t look cool now, but it’s OK for me. Some may say it still look ugly, but I can live with it. If you’re looking similar software with nicer look, please do try Trillian. I’ve read somewhere that the latest beta release is performing well.
Kedua, the add-on available. The number been increasingly well through out the years and this time i can find most of the function I needed in a IM. (Telling you the truth, I’m addicted to add-ons. Esp on my Firefox :D)
Note that YM and Live should have no problem logging in. But some Gtalk user does have problem logging into the network. To solve this, try the config below
Force old (port 5223) SSL: Checked
Allow plaintext auth over unencrypted streams: Un-Checked
Connect Port: 443
Connect Server: talk.google.com
Proxy type: Use Global Proxy Settings
Enjoy ur flight! 🙂
Berikut adalah sekadar tambahan. Sila skip jika perlu.
Lately aku agak bizi, nak main Dragon Age pon tak sempat. Morrigan dah memanggil-manggil ni. Ade dua exam nak kene setelkan juga. So have to put perkara lagha to the side dulu. Banyak la pulak aktiviti perlu dilaksanakan.
