BitlBee: IRC vs. Instant Messengers

Published 31 Jan 2004

freshmeat.net: Project Reviews - BitlBee: IRC vs. Instant MessengersBitlBee apparently lets you talk with all your ICQ, Yahoo, etc. friends using you favourite IRC client. This is made possible by emulating an IRC server.Very cool idea, although it seems a bit complex to start with. Now, I’m probably able to use Jabber only for IM and IRC for all the people who still use some old proprietary IM protocol.Do you yahoo?
