Suggest a good IM client which supports Gtalk, MSN and Facebook chat.
PS: I am using RHEL 6, I have kopete but it doesn't support facebook.
Found by Journeyman Geek:
InstantBird is a free IM client that claims support for the following IM protocols:
I have bolded the three that you specified. You can find versions for Windows MacOS and Linux, of which RHEL is a derivative so I would expect it to work.
You mentioned Facebook chat, follow this guide to get that configured to work properly in pidgin.
imo.im is a free web-based instant messaging service. It is ad-free, https-secured and supports the following networks:
I personally use Miranda IM
It's made for Windows (exclusively. It uses Windows 7 Aero features for example), so it doesn't have the strange quirks the ported software often has. Also it's open source.
All your protocols are supported. Here is a list:
AIM, Battle.NET, C6, Facebook, Gadu-Gadu, Google Mail Notifier, Google Talk, IAX (InterAsterisk), IChat, ICQ, IRC, Jabber, QQ, MSN, MySpace, Omegle, SIP, Skype, Sametime, Tlen, Twitter, VKontakte, VyChat, XFire, Yahoo
Some protocols have more than one implementation.
Additionally the whole UI is pluggable too. The whole thing is completely pluggable.
There's also special things that also plug in:
HTTPServer, MDynDns, Ping, RSS News, Weather, Radio streaming, Screenshot sending, WebCam, Whiteboard (Only works to Miranda), Logitech G15 plugin, PHP and Python scripting, games (Tic Tac Toe, Chess4Net, Battleships, ...)
Theres also plugins which encrypt your chats like OTR-Messaging (Off The Record). This plugin is also compatible with Trillians OTR for example.
I have used Meebo with some success. It's a web client that works with just about all the IM systems out there, and it has mobile versions as well.
The Meebo staff seem to be pretty good at including new IM systems and updating the system frequently.
However, they do have a small banner on the bottom of the window that kinda reminds me of Myspace, advertising bands and the like. It is easily minimized and very unobtrusive.
Meebo is also used to provide social network interaction on websites. You'll see their bottom bar on several news sites and blogs. In my experience, it tends to be the most popular of these bars, providing site interaction with all major social networks. If you're logged into Meebo and you come across one of these sites, you get more tools for sharing the site with your IM friends.
