Hi there. I just made the switch from Pidgin to Empathy, and I would like to say that there is only one thing I miss (and even on Pidgin that is a plugin).
Character count. It could be added right next to the message field, so it wouldn't take up much space or make the interface much more cluttered.
Why do I think this is a useful feature ? We live in an age of microblogs, and I use an XMPP frontend to post to the 2 microblogging services I use, so character count is a need so I can keep under 140 characters.
I totally understand if people think this will just clutter the application and it's not needed, but anyway, I stated my opinion.
