Digsby: Manage all your IM, Email and Social Network Accounts from one place

clip_image002Whenever you go online, how much time do you spend to check all of your emails accounts, browse through updates on your social network accounts and then login to your favorite IMs? Well, you can do away with all these mundane steps just by using the Digsby application.

Digsby is a software product that helps you manage all your IM, email, and social network accounts from one easy-to-use application. It is a free to use application, however it does show a few ads during the installation process for optional software, which you can decline during the setup. Other than that, it uses your CPU’s idle time to conduct computational research. If you wish, then you can even opt out of this as well.
