GYache Improved: a Full-Featured Yahoo! IM Client

Main Window

Pidgin is a cool IM client, but a lot of people (especially ex-Windows IMers) want more than the minimal features offered by a multi-protocol IM client. Most people know about aMSN as an MSN replacements, but few know about GYache Improved, the Yahoo! IM client with packages for most major distributions. GYache Improved is a fork of GYache Enhanced, and sports the following "advanced" features:
  • voice chat,
  • webcams,
  • faders,
  • 'nicknames',
  • audibles,
  • avatars, and
  • display images
Voice Client

You can get GI packages from the download page (here's a direct link to the Launchpad PPA for Ubuntu users).
