Description

Digsby is an Instant Messaging (IM) application used to connect to most major public Instant Messaging networks. With Digsby, users don’t need to log in to multiple IM networks. Digsby IM was created to be a multi-protocol messaging client commonly referred in the tech world as Multi-IM. Multi-IM technology used by Digsby is capable of supporting all popular IM networks available. In addition, Digsby has a workable configuration that can be used to handle web-based email and concurrently monitor all social networking websites.

Features

Digsby’s email support is exceptional, it’s a must have. Either POP or if you wish IMAP email, with Digsby you don’t have to log in to your email client anymore. Digsby supports almost all popular email clients; Hotmail, AOL/AIM, IMAP, Yahoo mail, Gmail, POP etc. In addition, Digsby offers a very easy way of configuring the email accounts. This feature allows users to receive, read and reply to mails without necessarily having to log out of the Digsby app. With Digsby’s social networking, it’s far beyond your normal Facebook.  Options included in the application allow users to get notifications in real time, send and receive messages all in an instant.

Digsby supports several IM chat clients such as yahoo messenger, AIM, Google Talk, Facebook Chat, MSN, ICQ, and Myspace.  When logged in, all accounts are displayed on the Windows system interface. With just a click, a window pops that allows users manage their networks as a normal browse would. The Digsby app also lets users receive news updates coming from all major social networking sites, again eliminating use of multiple tabs. The software itself is quite light and simple using a functional Graphic User Interface making it quite powerful. The app is highly customizable, especially on usability and appearance aspects.

Comparison

Digsby can be downloaded for free just like many other popular chat clients. But while there are other competitive IM clients, Digsby stands clearly out with its powerful capabilities, considering it is a light application. Currently Digsby chat client is available only on Windows platform with Mac OSX and Linux platforms applications on development stage. With no release date known its immediate peers Trillian Astra and Pidgin are in the run for it. However, Digsby does not allow group chats of which Trillian Astra offers. Also Skype chat is not available too. Considering the fact that Skype is one of the popular IMs globally common with business people who would capitalize on its All-Chats-In-One feature, Digsby is yet to include Skype. 

Conclusion

Not long ago, Instant Messaging was exclusively meant for individuals wishing to do a leisurely online chat with friends and maybe cut on costs by not making those long distance calls. Nowadays almost every office and serious business deals are sealed by utilizing these IM networks. Digsby which is developed by dotSyntax LLC assists employees to stay and companies to stay connected by its inclusion of popular IM clients.
