The goal of Kopete is to provide users with a single easy-to-use way to access all of their instant messaging systems. The interface puts people first, and is integrated with the system address book to let you access your contacts from other KDE applications.
IM can be intrusive, but Kopete's notification system can be tuned so that only important contacts interrupt you. Kopete also features tools to enhance your IM, such as message encryption, archiving, and many other fun and useful effects.
Kopete supports all commonly used instant messaging protocols, and the Kopete team provides templates for developers to base new plugins on. Our API provides developers with many features to ease supporting a new protocol. All protocols are plugins and allow modular installation, configuration, and usage.
