Funpidgin is a modified version of the Pidgin instant messenger application. It was made in response to the controversial auto-resizing textbox that was implemented in Pidgin. Current features of Funpidgin include manual resizing and the ability to turn off persistent window placement. Funpidgin's releases are meant to coincide with Pidgin's releases.
