A useful and extremely practical Jabber desktop client that lets you easily connect with an existing account or quickly create a new one and start chatting

editor's review




Keeping in touch with friends and chatting with them is one of the favorite activities of a lot of computer users. This is the reason why so many dedicated applications have been developed to accommodate this need for real-time communication.

Quickly connect with your existing account

Exodus is one of the Jabber clients that promise to offer users exactly the features they love the most about instant messaging applications: a great interface, stability and simple features.

The program organizes the accounts on ''profiles'', so you will have to create a new one or edit the default one to input your username and password. If you're using another server than the default one, you have to access the advanced tab and write down the server address.

Create a new account in a guided process

There is a 'New User Registration Wizard' available that should help you connect or create a new jabber account. You only have to follow a couple of easy steps before starting to chat with your friends. Truth is, Exodus has a pretty user friendly interface once you connect to a server and begin a conversation.

Enhanced possibilities with plugin support

The 'Settings' menu allows you to configure in detail a lot of settings, including those for contacts and groups, notifications and messages, emoticons or file transfers. A neat feature of Exodus is the fact that it allows you to extend its functionality with the help of various plugins.

To end with

Overall, those who like simplicity will surely appreciate this app, but the more demanding users may be deterred by the plain looks and feature pack Exodus comes with. It does have everything you'd need from a simple Jabber client, but don't expect too fancy features because it has been designed to serve as a basic program to chat over the Internet and that's exactly what it is.
