The goals of OpenHead are:
- fitting nicely with the text;
- small size; and
- feature parity (as much as possible) with typed emoticons – i.e. only emoticons which make sense when typed will be included.
For now I only launched the black 22x22 version, others may follow. The current release should work on KDE/Kopete as well as Pidgin. If there is demand, Adium support may be included later on.
