Pidgin 2.6.6

Pidgin is a chat program which lets you log in to accounts on multiple chat networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on Windows Live Messenger, talking to a friend on Google Talk, and talking to your friends on Facebook via XMPP without the need to log into the Facebook website. 

Pidgin offers compatibility with many popular networks, including AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber/XMPP, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo!, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, IRC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, QQ, Lotus Sametime, SILC, SIMPLE, MySpaceIM, and Zephyr. It can support other networks using plugins.

It's a shame, not in windows as well...

There is just 1 more thing that I'd like to see this do.

Double-clicking the tray icon should always show Pidgin and bring it to the front.

Right now, it toggles between Hiding the window, and showing the window. Well, if the window is already behind a dozen others, when I double-click the tray icon it ends up just minimizing/hiding the Pidgin window instead of letting me see it. I have to click the tray icon 4 times basically to get it to appear.
