Digsby comes as a free application however it has got two costs involved.First is Ads, by default Digsby shows Ads which can be switched off.

Go to Tools > Preferences > Conversations and un-check the box saying ‘Support Digsby Development With An Ad’. This will make Digsby Ad free, however if you like this great app I would suggest to keep this option active. After all they are not forcing us, they are just requesting us show the Ads.

Second cost involved in using Digsby is that it has got a Research Mode option under Preferences. This will use computers CPU for processing its data whenever it detects your computer in Idle mode. However this option can also be switched off by un-checking the box under Tools > Preferences >Research Mode option.
