If you are a real freak, you must hangouts/facebook/whatever-that-support-XMPP-protocol chat from terminal:
1) Install profanity and run profanity from your terminal:
2) Setup the account that you want to chat, for example, if you can chat with hangouts (Google):
/account add google /account set google jid [email protected] /account set google server talk.google.com /account set google port 5432
more information here.
3) Login your account:
/connect google [enter the password]
/who <status> # (you can autocomplete with tab) /msg <name> # (you can autocomplete with tab) /win <number> # change the window (also use F1-F5)
change the theme:
/theme list /theme set <name>
Feel like a little Nick!
