Instant messenger, VoIP application, GMail notifier, Skype client, last.fm radio, and Facebook tool fring connects with Skype and standard SIP VoIP, GoogleTalk, MSN (Windows Live), ICQ, Yahoo, AIM, Twitter, chat of social networking sites Facebook and orkut, and more.
Update: fring is no longer a multi-network messenger. They kicked 'em all out, fring now only works on it's own fring network. My advice: don't use fring.
And now it finaly works on the touchscreen Nokia 5800XM too.
Tip: if you download fring from the fring download page, you don't need to enter your real email address in the "get fring via PC" box.
Multiprotocol chat client Palringo killed some bugs, tweaked its user interface a bit, and added Facebook chat to its list of supported instant messaging networks. It doesn't connect to Skype yet. You can send voice messages, but Palringo doesn't do real VoIP calls like Nimbuzz, fring, and Talkonaut.
