Digsby IM Reviewed

I recently downloaded a new Instant Messaging software called Digsby. I used Pidgin for years which is amazing IM software, but Digsby has more functionality and special features such as popups that let you know when new email is received or updates are made on popular social networking sites, etc.

It's very functional, but there has been some dispute as to just how honest the people at Digsby are? They have taken steps in the right direction and it seems that they are more scrupulous than before by removing much of their crapware from the installer. Kudos to them for that.

Just be aware while installing the software that many options are selected by default such as an Ask.com toolbar. Here are the screenshots from the entire installation process for build 25261, as of this post.



Screen 1


Screen 2


Screen 3 - Deselect these options to kill the toolbar


Screen 4


Screen 5 - I only selected the top option to Launch automatically

Enjoy the software, it really is great except for the installer, and let me know what you think.

P.S. Does the Digsby guy remind anyone else of Homestar Runner? lol
