Facebook chat-plugin for Pidgin

If you're a multi-platform user like I did (Windows and Mac at home, Linux at office) you probably using a cross-platform application like Pidgin. I do enjoy using Pidgin for its capabilities to put all chat-platform (you name it, YM, Windows Live, GTalk, Jabber, Gadu-gadu, AOL, etc.) in one interface.

And as social networking brighten up with Facebook, probably you start to think, can we put facebook chat into Pidgin as well? The answer is YES. I just found out that Google Code made some kind of plugin to enabling facebook chat protocol in Pidgin. You can find it here

As a user of facebook, I'm really excited. Finally I can put all the chat protocol I've used into one simple interface. Go try it yourself!
