It’s 3:30 in the afternoon and you’ve done absolutely no work. Morever, your computer has crashed because had your Gmail window; Twitter window, Facebook window, IM, MySpace, LinkedIn, and Jabber windows have all been open on your desktop at the same time for the past seven and a half hours. If you want to be more productive tomorrow, you might try Digsby today.  Digsby is the multiprotocol IM client that enables you to manage all of your IM, email, and social networking accounts from a single application. Here are the highlights:

INSTANT MESSAGING
Bring all of your AIM, MSN, Facebook, Yahoo, ICQ, GTalk and Jabber buddies into a single contact list using Digsby. You will also receive pop-up notification when you get a new message and, instead of switching between various IM windows, you can respond simply typing into the pop-up window! A pregnant pause in IM conversation? No worries; the pop-up disappears after being idle for a few seconds.

CHECKING EMAIL

If you have a Gmail, Hotmail, AOL/AIM, POP or IMAP email account (which you most likely do), you can set up your account through Digsby, and begin writing, reading and responding to email directly from your IM window. Get notifications of new emails through message previews, and the capacity to “Mark as Read,” or “Delete” straight from the notification window.

SOCIAL NETWORKING
Maintain your active virtual social life all in one place. Not only can you update your Facebook, Twitter and MySpace statuses, or recommend a connection on LinkedIn, but you can send and receive Tweets and check direct messages at the same time. That’s right; you can interact with your entire social network from within Digsby. Each account is assigned its own icon, so that you can tell them apart, and, in one simple click, you can manage each network the same way you would in a web browser. Moreover, Digsby provides a newsfeed of events in your networks.

At the moment, Digsby is PC-compatible only. No Macs need apply.
