    Mozilla introduce Instantbird! The new messenger

    The fresh new messenger from the Mozilla foundation is out. A very early bugged 0.1 version. But just there:

    Here's the link:

    http://www.instantbird.org/

    If some body can make it work, just let us know.

    If I can figure out the dependencies and successfully compile it, I'll create a debian package for it.

    EDIT
    Nevermind, they did the first two parts already, I'll just create the package.

    lol, think the answer to cross platforming was XUL, except the fact that it is VERY resource intensive.

    XUL has bloated quite - it should be called Chicken Tonight

    In other news, Debian release Slowfish.

    In fact, I found Debian Testing to be very fast to boot.

    Regardless of the resource usage of the client, i love the look of the timeline, especially the after version 1.0 section

    Video/Voice

    The one biggest weak spot of Linux IM clients. I know there are clients that do it but I'm not aware of one that does all the major protocols with both video/voice support.

    So what is it exactly? A jabber client? Seems a bit unnecessary really, should have made it closer integrated like chatzilla. But at least it's something that is actually planning for voice & video.

    Cool I'll have to give this one a try and see how it measures up to Kopete.
