Programs for $0.00: Digsby

Digsby is an Instant Messaging program that works with many of the most popular IM services. Pretty standard, yeah, but that's not all it does. It connects to the basics like MSN, Yahoo, AOL, and GTalk to name a few...but the program also connects to Facebook Chat, so anyone online at Facebook can talk to you without you even being on the site. The program also links you to your Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and most recently LinkedIn accounts, so when you get a message or someone's status changes on the site, you can know (again, without actually being on the site). Mail accounts can also be linked to the program, so your POP and IMAP mail services, as well as popular webmail services like GMail, Yahoo Mail, and Hotmail can be viewed via Digsby's main window or in your icon tray. There's a lot of accessibility in this program, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good multi-client IM program. Not to mention it only costs $0. Now get busy not doing work.
