UPDATED! Poll: Which Instant Messaging Client(s) Do You Use?

Due to demand in the comments, 3 new IM clients have been added to the poll. You can now vote for Pidgin, Miranda, and Apple’s iChat. Apologies for omissions! Our poll this week focuses on IM clients. This weekend Corvida wrote that interoperability between popular IM clients is happening, albeit slowly.

One thing that Corvida mentioned got me wondering: “Digsby is poised to take a serious amount from the market share of the standard clients because of its interoperability not only with IM clients, but also because of the integrated social networks and even email.” With that in mind, let us know which IM clients you currently use in the poll below.

UPDATE: Due to demand in the comments, Pidgin and Miranda have been added. At time of adding, 3651 votes had been cast. Apologies to fans of those two IM clients for the omission.

UPDATE 2: Also added iChat (3983 votes cast).
