"Good Integrator of Instant Messaging Services"
- Integrates many different IM services
- No new account required
- Support for File Transferring
- It is not fancy looking (there may be Skins, I did not look into it and did not use it very long)
- The Facebook connection could be a bit confusing (I believe you have to have a username in your Facebook account separate from email)
I think it is a good program, although I prefer Digsby, which also integrates emails and Facebook stuff other than chat. Digsby is also nicer looking only because there is easy switching of skins in the settings/preferences. Both programs seemed to me to use very little system resources.
