Digsby open to all, adds Twitter

Now anyone can try out beta of Digsby, which integrates IM, e-mail and social-network communications.

Digsby, the application that lets you view your instant-message, e-mail, and social-network accounts through one interface, opened up to the public on Thursday. Download Digsby for Windows from CNET Download.com.

The application also has support for popular micro-blogging application Twitter and allows real-time audio and video chat across IM networks through a partnership with TokBox. Oh, and it now offers inline spell check. WooHoo!

Digsby first hit the scene in early February . It's still in beta, but now you don't need an invitation to use it.

Other applications that enable you to manage multiple IM accounts include Trillian and Miranda, but Digsby goes a step further by integrating e-mail messages as well as Twitter, Facebook and MySpace communications.

Then there's Fuser, which lets you view your e-mail and social-networking messages in one place, but doesn't touch IM. And Orgoo integrates e-mail, IM, SMS (Short Message Service), video chat, and video mail.

It's enough to make your head spin.
