I’ve been looking for a very simple, low footprint Windows XMPP client. So far, every client I’ve tried looks "full-featured", installs a bunch of libraries and uses 30 MB of RAM or more in task manager. I’ve tried Psi, Gajim, Pidgin, and Coccinella.
For comparison, some popular non-XMPP chat clients use less memory: mIRC uses only 15 MB of RAM, and Softros LAN Messenger uses 4 MB.
Isn’t there something more simple or an app that was designed/optimized for Windows specifically?
