As my pidgin has problem connecting ICQ recently, I have to rebuild my pidgin, and at the same time, I decided to give a try on Carrier (a fork of pidgin) which has a more active and speedy development.
But when I compile Carrier, it depends on WebKit, so I compiled also pango, cairo and WebKit in order to build Carrier.
I've heard that Safari - Apple's browser based on WebKit... to be exact, WebKit is open sourced by Apple, got 100 marks in ACID3, so atter building WebKit,...
What a nice result!
As well as testing Carrier and WebKit, I've tried another MSN protocol plugin for pidgin/carrier - msn-pecam, which is from the original developer of MSN plugin of pidgin, he doesn't like the slow pace and the attitude of pidgin team so he decided to make a seperated plugin for supporting MSN protocol, it seems to be working very well.
I will use Carrier + MSN-PECAM at the moment to see if it is more stable or not.
