Kadu – Free Instant Messaging Application
Review by on
Kadu is an instant messaging (IM) application that runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Once you get it up and running and once you sign into an account, you will be able to use Kadu to talk to any of your contacts. If you sign into your Facebook account for example, you can use Kadu to talk to any of your Facebook friends. It must be mentioned here that Kadu provides support for Gadu-Gadu, Jabber/XMPP, Gmail, and Facebook accounts.

A setup wizard will help you install Kadu on your Windows-powered PC. As expected, it will let you pick where to install this IM application and it will let you select the components that will be installed. When you’re done with the installation and you launch Kadu for the first time, a wizard will help you set up a profile, connect to an existing account, or set up a new account. You can access this wizard at any time by going to the Tools menu and selecting Start Configuration Wizard.

The interface is just what you would expect from an IM application: a list of all your contacts. Go to the Preferences menu, the Look submenu, and you will get to customize how Kadu looks: pick an icon theme, pick a chat style, choose if you want to use a background image for the contacts list, play with the colors, play with the fonts. From the aforementioned Preferences menu you can play with many other settings that govern how Kadu works.

The functionality is just what you would expect from an IM application: add contacts, manage a list of contacts, view and edit contact details; IM with any of your contacts; send file, send SMS, send email; use emoticons in your chats; view chat history; get notifications when a contact comes online; get notifications when someone contacts you; pick a predefined status message, select a custom status message; put Kadu in silent mode.

Kadu is free and open source software released under a GNU General Public license.

Talk with your Gadu-Gadu, Jabber/XMPP, Gmail, and Facebook friends by using the free Kadu IM application.

Pros
Kadu runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Kadu provides support for Gadu-Gadu, Jabber/XMPP, Gmail, and Facebook accounts. A wizard will help you install Kadu on a Windows PC. Another wizard will help you set up the basic settings. The interface has a familiar layout and can be customized. Kadu provides access to all the functionality you would expect to get from an IM client. Kadu is free and open source.

Cons
None that I could think of.
