Customizing Gaim

It’s always bugged me that I could not change the font size of the buddy list in Gaim, and shrink the window to take up a little less horizontal space.

A few weeks ago, I finally found the Extended Preferences Plugin, which lets you change the font sizes of the buddy list and conversations. It also gives you the ability to customize which buttons are displayed, whether the buddy list can be shrunk below the normal size constraints, and whether the buddy list shows up in the taskbar. This last one is a nice way to save some valuable taskbar real estate.
