Pidgin Portable (formerly Gaim Portable) is the versatile Pidgin instant messaging client packaged as a portable app, so you can take your IM settings, buddy lists, conversation history, spell checkers, plugins and preferences with you.
It has all the same great features as Pidgin, including support for AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Google Talk / Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, IRC and more.
This means you can log into multiple networks with only one program so you can chat with all your friends simultaneously, regardless which network they prefer.
And the best is: there's nothing to install on the local PC, so you can place it on your USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive or a CD, take it always with you and use it on any computer, without leaving any personal information behind.
You can also easily add the included portable encryption plugins for secure, encrypted messaging.
Pidgin Portable is Open Source, meaning this is the full version, royalty-free and containing no Spyware or Adware.
