Digsby is a freeware proprietary multiprotocol instant messaging application developed by dotSyntax, LLC. Digsby is written in Python and uses wxPython as its widget toolkit and WebKit for rendering. It supports most mainstream IM services such as AOL Instant Messenger, Microsoft's .NET Messenger Service, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, Facebook Chat, MySpace IM and XMPP/Jabber-based services such as Google Talk and LiveJournal's IM. Secondly, Digsby supports e-mail notifications via POP, IMAP and webmail like AOL, Yahoo! and Hotmail - including the ability to mark messages as read, as spam or delete them from the client itself. Finally, Digsby also supports alerts and newsfeeds from MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Digsby has built in additional features such as customizable skins for the client and IM windows, aggregated web search from within the client via multiple sites, composing emails from IM windows, combining friends from multiple clients into one contact listing, and even a separable Twitter client with unique features such as chronological streaming (oldest to newest). It is released free under a proprietary license. Development is funded through optional sponsored add-on applications via installer and distributed computing. It needs registration, which can be done through the program's installer or through a web interface. As of March 20, 2008, the Digsby application is in its public beta stage of development and is still available for Windows only (Mac & Linux versions continue to be forthcoming).
