Did you know (via the Debian NEW and BYHAND package list) that there’s a new kid on the IM software block? Behold: instantbird, based on the XUL framework and the pidgin libpurple codebase.

Instantbird is a multi-protocol Instant Messaging client. Using it, you can connect to all your different IM accounts.

It uses the Mozilla rendering engine to display IMs, and the Pidgin libpurple to connect to the different networks.
