Jabber is:

  • An open, secure technology for instant messaging and a whole lot more.
  • A friendly community of end users and developers who value freedom of communication.
  • A decentralized network of IM services in which your messages are not monitored by a big company like AOL, Microsoft, or Yahoo. You can even run your own server!
  • Instant messaging the way it was meant to be!

In other words, Jabber is NOT a closed, insecure, unfriendly, centralized, proprietary instant messaging service like AIM, ICQ, MSN, or Yahoo.

Instead, Jabber gives you true freedom of conversation. So get started today!
