Kopete
I switched from Pidgin to Kopete as well. No brainer if you run KDE; however, since Kopete requires many of KDE's libraries, if you are using a different DE you may want to look elsewhere.

Well it's Pidgin for me, running a close second is Kopete for it's video capability.

I know it listed in another category, but Skype also plays a role in my keeping in touch tool kit, I use it for messaging is addition to it's other features.
