Jabbim – for a better Jabber/XMPP

Jabbim client

Jabbim is a client for communication over XMPP/Jabber protocol, written in the Python language using Qt (4.3), PyQt (4.3) and Pyxl library, which is a part of the client. The aim of the Jabbim client is to make Jabber approachable for common people, so it is a client for common users and beginners. Because of this philosophy the Jabbim client might not suit everyone.[1]

Jabbim runs on Windows, and mostly all flavours of GNU/Linux. Its current stable version is 0.4.3 and it claim to provide the following in this version. So we cannot expect much from it but seems a clean one to try at least.

Meebo + Firefox, Its my thing…

Meebo, the IM which I use all the time, to chat with all my friends who are on GTalk, Yahoo, or MSN. And Firefox is what I use in my Linux as well as Vista. And now what I have got for me?

Its a Firefox Extension for Meebo, and this brings much more to my messenger which runs inside Firefox. This new extension adds features like:

  • Automatically sign on to your IM accounts when you launch your browser
  • See your most recent messages in the optional sidebar while you browse the web
  • Get notified when your friends send you an IM so you'll never miss it
  • Drag images and links right onto your sidebar buddy list
  • Alerts when contacts come on-line and go off-line
