I am not sure how many of you all aware of this program,Digsby. I have been using this program for the past 1 week, and I am very impressed with it. Here are the pros and cons of the program :-

Prons :-

* Can check emails ( Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail .etc ) using Digsby. You don't have to login to each site to read your emails.

* If you chat a lot, you can integrate all your chat contacts within Digsby. You can add all your msn contacts, Yahoo messenger , Gtalk and even Facebook chat . I know there are few programs, like Pigdin and Trillian can do this, but I prefer Digsby, coz it's small, faster and easy to use.

* Another cool feature is you can update, check your messages and read the contents of your social networking sites like Facebook, Orkut, Myspace and all other s**t. Everything here, you do not have to open multiple browsers :D

* This is the little notification (image below) that pops up when somebody IMs you or sends you a message. Its pretty awesome as you can reply right through it and don’t have to open the window

Cons :-

* I noticed that facebook chat connection is not stable ( without firewall). It's frequently getting disconnected .

* When use Digsby behind firewall, the chat connections to MSN messenger and Yahoo Messenger suxx big time.

Overall, Digsby's attempt to be a one-stop shop for communication is an initial success. Hope newer versions will fix the bugs . Give it a try , have a nice day

I've been using Digsby for past 3 months.It makes thing easier and avoid us to sign in for e-mail checking every time turn on the computer.Apt for people who mingle with a bunch of social networks.
