    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    I like the ballons for E-Mail

    Summary

    I would recommend it to people I know.

    "Smooth transfer, easy to use interface, nice themes."

    September 7, 2008  |   By acerimeli78

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    Works well and keeps all of my contacts and social networks in one place. User-friendly options; easy to customize. I haven't encounter any glitches so far (been using it for one week now). Seems to work much better for me than Trillian did.

    Cons

    No cons so far.

    "Not that good and security risk"

    August 22, 2008  |   By Ord3s

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    The basic is done very nice. And it is a good all in one IM. It has good functions and supports audio and video chat.

    Cons

    1. Memory. It takes much to much memory.
    2. Passwords are stored on their server. If u want to recover your password. U first enter your new password, Second u enter each password of every account u using. And that on a non encrypted site.

    Summary

    More cons:
    3. Log files. Everything is logged and i cant customize the way the storage/ delete of the log file is handled. e.g time/size, location etc
    4. Bad theme. To bulky, take too much space in the IM window. There need to be a simple theme. With individual color customiztion

    Summary
    The basic is good. And it has good functions. With only the memory leak and bad themes it would get a 3-4 stars rating. But with the bad security policy, and the need to store my password on there server it only get 2. Thinking about 1 actually.

    "Very customizable and an all-in-one"

    August 21, 2008  |   By gbelk08

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    Easy to setup and change settings. When I changed my password for Gmail, it just took two clicks to change it with Digsby. This makes it so much easier for me to keep up with all my chatting without having 8 Firefox tabs open. I LOVE IT!!!

    Cons

    For some reason, AIM pops up with a window telling me that I'm logged in in multiple locations and makes me press '1' to clear up the problem. It's not that big of a deal, and I use Facebook chat more anyways. But it's still annoying till I find solu

    "Will take over soon."

    August 17, 2008  |   By MttFrog13

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    Has a lot of customizations that you wish were in your other messengers. Will take over if Trillian astra isn't released soo or pidgin doesn't make some major advances.

    Cons

    none so far, they have fixed memory issues in newer releases.

    "Best communications tool on the web"

    August 17, 2008  |   By ViralArchitect

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    Social networking, chat, and email all in one
    Precise control over notifications, display, and behavior
    Ability to create web widgits so anyone on a page with an embeded widgit can chat with you.

    Cons

    Doesn't do the talking FOR me.

    Summary

    This program is more useful than outlook. When people want to talk to you, this one program will make sure they can. Log into several different chat clients, monitor your facebook, myspace, and twitter accounts, as well as all your email accounts.

    You can create custom widgits which are little chat apps that you can easily embed into any web page. As long as you're online, anyone on that page can chat live with you without having to install any chat protocol. That's handy if you are providing live support for something or if you are very connected and need to be reachable.

    Run this on a PDA or other mobile device and as long as you're online, you are 100% reachable

    "Very Good!"

    August 12, 2008  |   By darthvador365

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    All the features.

    I got this so I can get rid of Windows Live Messenger, use AIM, and use the Facebook Chat function, since that wouldn't work in my Opera Browser, and don't know why. But hey, this is very good!

    Cons

    The reasons why I'm not giving this a 5:

    1)Heavy on system sources

    2)Took a while to load up

    3)Pop-ups could be annoying (although that can be controlled in the preferences)

    4)Minor instability

    But hey, better than Pidgin in terms of features!

    "Not bad!"

    August 10, 2008  |   By JennyMala5

    Version: Digsby build 15142

    Pros

    So far, the most advanced social network that has launched is Toober.com. They do it better I think than any of these because they reward their members (I assume by using ad dollars). But Digsby is ok too.

    Cons

    This software is not a complex as some others.
