Set­backs

I won’t say these are set­backs but points to be noted

Skype is not yet included. It is not a set­back but if it includes skype it will be com­plete IM and Social solution.

The chat win­dow shows a small ad, It won’t dis­turb the user and if user feels it is annoy­ing then can be set off from the pref­er­ence win­dow. But I left it there because it sup­ports digsby to cov­er their expenses. A small token of thanks to their work.

Con­clu­sion:

Finally the Digsby is fully recom­men­ded Multi-IM cli­ent. Down­load it at Digsby
