Does Pidgin integrate well with Gnome Shell, compared to Empathy? I'm using Linux Mint 12 right now. Would I be better off installing Empathy?

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.

There is a "gnome-shell-extensions-pidgin" referred on another question.

It will allow some synchronization between Pidgin and gnome-shell.

Personally, I believe Empathy isn't still ready for the masses.
