Fed up with keeping Facebook Home page open in your browser all the time just to chat with your Facebook buddeis??? You don't need to do that anymore. Yes, Pidgin community has done it again for you, just for you. Now plug-ins are available to enable Facebook chat on Pidgin, where you can use Facebook chat simply as you use your favorite instant messenger to KIT with your buddies. Here I'm mentioning the plugin I'm using to reach my buddies in Facebook. It's called pidgin-facebookchat. You can easily install it by downloading it into your local hard drive. It is available as a deb for Debian users, as an exe for Windows users and Red Hat users can check the future plans page to check whether the rpm is ready. The installation is really easy. Just double click on the exe or deb you downloaded and add a new account to chat with Facebook buddies by navigating to Accounts > Manage on Pidgin. Click on add tbutton there to add a new account for Facebook chat while selecting Facebook Chat as the protocol. Then you can enter your username (Your e-mail account you use to log in to Facebook) and password to enter facebook. That's all you need. Why wasting your computer resources on browser when you really don't need it? Use Pidgin.
