Mozilla Releases InstantBird

Mozilla's InstantBird

Mozilla recently hopped over into the instant messenger business with InstantBird. Though still slightly buggy, InstantBird is an open-source instant messaging program that allows you to incorporate most major instant messaging programs into one. This includes AIM, ICQ, Yahoo!, GTalk, Windows Live Instant Messenger, and I’m sure more to come.

It used the same code as the recently popular Pidgin system, so Pidgin users may find it somewhat familiar.

It looks like they’re already developing a spellchecking feature, and I’m anxious to see their voice and video implementation. If it’s as good as their other products, I expect this one to top all other IM programs.
