Digsby :: Pidgin :: Facebook : *Current* Opinions?

So, it's Friday at work which means "nothing is going on so go ahead and screw around day" and I have been spending too much of my morning Googling chat clients that work with Facebook Chat so I can chat with my long lost friends and actually never have to step foot into Facebook again.

The problem is, every single freakin' search result takes me to pages dating back to August 2008 or earlier. A LOT can and must have changed since then, so does anyone in FOO use these little apps to chat with Facebook users and have current opinions? I could always try them for myself, but my free time is very precious at home and I wouldn't have time to troubleshoot very much, so I would prefer to do my research ahead of time.

Based on the ancient stuff I am finding, both apps seem to have lots of bugs with the Facebook plug-ins, some rather cumbersome, but, again, the incidents I am reading about are almost 8 months old!

All thoughts appreciated, no matter how FOO-like they may be.

I highly recommend Digsby. I haven't been able to use it much lately, though, because I bought a MacBook last year, and Digsby is PC only. When I was using it, though, I loved it.

Pidgin is a great application in general (I can't speak for the Windows or OS X versions), but I didn't even know Facebook had a chat protocol, so I have no idea how well Pidgin does or doesn't work with it.
