Pidgin 2.10.11


Pidgin does not have an attractive user interface and this is a bit strange. At first sight we can say that what you see is what you get and we can bet on that. The Program Preferences interface tab has nothing that can change the interface and that's about it.

The first thing that you have to do before you start using this chat client is add all other chat accounts that you want to use with Pidgin. They will be listed in the Accounts window and can be modified or deleted at any further time. Each account can be specified by its own unique settings for better integration.

Conversations, Logging, Network, Proxy and Sounds settings can be tweaked to satisfy your needs and this is most of what you can do with the program preferences. Each individual chat window can be managed separately and besides text and files, you can insert links and horizontal rules. Emoticons here are called Smile! and they are not so many, but there is a way to increase their count if you download more of them.

Basic Operations

Pidgin 2.10.11 has another interesting feature which is called Buddy Pounce that allows you to specify the action that will be performed by the program when someone of your friends signs in or out. You can also manage everything related to the application from its icon in the Taskbar. By default it sits there and only reminds about itself in case it requires your attention.


Pidgin is a very useful tool that can be used widely across the globe. You can chat, send files and emoticons to your friends and sometimes that is all that you need. The lack of audio and video communication is really a con, but if you do not need it then this program is all you need to be in touch with everybody.


  • Simple to use
  • Multi-protocol client
  • Multi language app
  • Various sorting options


  • No audio and video communication
  • Some awkward functions
