I have gotten so frustrated with how often Meebo isn't working (like last night and today). I think it's time to switch to something else, but it needs to be something that doesn't require users to login. I got so confused with Hab.la because their instructions are so vague. I found AIM's WIMSI widget, which seemed great until it started displaying that I was offline even though I was online and carrying on a conversation with myself.
I can't easily see if Pidgin has a widget, or if it's just an aggregator and you need a Meebo account to use it, like what Hab.la seems to be. I don't like Hab.la's widget anyway, it's almost invisible.
Help, if you have any advice!
