Hey Guys,

I would like to open a discussion about removing Gwibber from the
default install. Gwibber has several defects that make it way worse to
use than the Twitter-Website.

- No support for Twitters Streaming API makes it a lot slower than the
    NOTE: This feature is nearly 2 years old!!

- No autocompletion of usernames makes it much more difficult to
communicate with Gwibber

Also some other stuff that is really annoying:
- No smooth scrolling

- No multi-column view

Is there anybody actually using Gwibber on a daily basic? I have it
uninstalled on all my machines and use Twitter through the Web-Interface.

I would love to use a native desktop-application but Gwibber is just
missing soo many features.

What do you think?
