Finally dug out Digsby

Usually, in my Google chrome, I always have at least 5-6 tabs open to check my mails, social networking updates. Earlier I used to have more to follow regular News and updates. Now I have configured the breaking news as Twitter updates, and hence I rely on the Twits.

Even then, having so many tabs open and regularly checking them is still a lot of work. So I started off with a quest to find a smart utility which would allow me to combine all. Found this in the first page of Google and Bing search results:

Digsby is a IM/Email/Social Networking client which supports:

Email: Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, POP and IMAP
IM: GTalk, Yahoo, MSN, AIM, ICQ, Jabber, Facebook chat
Social Networking: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn

You can set-up all your accounts in one client, and Digsby will provide alerts on your desktop. When you configure Digsby to show in system tray, it can also show you number of unread mails in the System tray per account.
