If you haven’t noticed, there are so many different instant messaging programs these days. I mean, there’s AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, MSN Messenger, Google Talk, IRC Chat and the list goes on and on. That’s all good and well, but there’s one little problem: all of those IM clients do not talk to each other.

For example, if you have a friend who uses AIM, you have to have AIM as well. If you have a friend who uses MSN Messenger, you need to have MSN Messenger too. And so on and so forth. Doesn’t that just seem a little ridiculous to you?

Well, for this week’s download, I found a program that simplifies all of that! It is called Pidgin and what it does is combine all the instant messaging programs together into one. All you have to do is install Pidgin onto your computer and enter in your usernames and passwords for the different IM programs you use. Pidgin will do the rest for you! That way, all you have to worry about is one program and you can still talk to all of your friends, no matter what instant messenger they use. How cool is that?!

You can download Pidgin for yourself right here. Have fun with it!
