I found a very useful feature of Pidgin (and ChatZilla, too) to TabComplete names in IRC chatrooms. In IRC rooms, if you want to notify a specific user about your message, you need to prefix your message with the nick of the user. Now, this becomes very tedious sometimes with nicknames getting more than 10 letters! :o With Pidgin or Chatzilla, just type the first two three letters of the nickname, and hit tab to tab-complete. If there are two or more user with the same first letters, you will be greeted with the list of such nicknames. Very useful. Haven't tried it with mIRC, but it must be there, too. ;)
