Jabber Client
This is an instant messenging client. It helps in workplace communication I give it the low rating i do due to accessibility issues for those of us who are blind. I will be contacting the developer since you have kindly told me who makes the program. This is outragous that my company wont use anything else since its jabber. I imagine spark has its own internal server threfore an accessible alternative like miranda-im would not work. so its contact software company time!
