I miss the way IM notifications used to work on the desktop tbh. The notification area did get crowded, but I miss the workflow of noticing that there's a message waiting for me, clicking the icon, and it hopping me right to the convo of interest in Pidgin.

It's the thing I've missed most since Gnome 3. It was a rough edge that I always felt like would be realized would be needed back but that never happened. Extensions to restore it never worked right imo...


Having all my conversations collapse into Pidgin was just really wonderful. Nowadays I have about 50 different places to check for messages, and none of them feel as good...
