Kopete is KDE's
instant messaging (IM) client.
It allows you to
communicate with your friends and colleagues using various instant
messaging services including AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber,
IRC, Gadu-Gadu, Novell GroupWise Messenger, and more. It is designed to
be a flexible and extensible multi-protocol system suitable for
personal and enterprise use.
The goal of Kopete is to provide users with a single
easy-to-use way to access all of their instant messaging systems. The
interface puts people first, and is integrated with the system address
book to let you access your contacts from other KDE applications. IM
can be intrusive, but Kopete's notification system can be tuned so that
only important contacts interrupt you.
Kopete also features tools to enhance your IM, such as message
encryption, archiving, and many other fun and useful effects.
