Digsby Private Beta

Recently I found the IM client digsby, which is currently in a private beta.

Thanks to the guys at Lifehacker, I got my code a couple days ago, and I have to say, it is quite impressive. With a style that rivals that of Adium for the the Mac, customizable skin options are plentiful. It has something that has alluded windows users for years, which is bubbling in IM windows. Once you have a skin for the main window, you can skin the IM windows(with something like the before mentioned bubbling), and then you can colorize the IM window skin. It also makes use of the notification window. When you receive an IM, the notification window pops up in the lower left, however you have a few seconds to select the notification window, and using the text box inside, can respond straight from the pop-up.

My favorite feature in action.

It also includes Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, and POP3 support, and will alert you when you receive an email. You can even mark as read, or delete directly from Digsy. Also there is support for Myspace and Facebook.

The only negatives I have found, were that it is a bit of a RAM hog, and there is no twitter support, unless of coarse you link your twitter to your GTalk, and hook up to GTalk.

Make sure to give it a try.
