CoyIM – a standalone chat client that focuses on safety and security. It is a self-contained program that runs on Windows, Linux and macOS. CoyIM only supports one chat protocol – XMPP (Jabber). It is built upon xmpp-client and coyim otr3, and adds a graphical user interface and implies safe and secure options by default.

The developers ambition is that it should be possible for even the most high-risk people on the planet to safely use CoyIM, without having to make any configuration changes. To do this, CoyIM has OTR enabled and uses Tor by default. Besides that, it will only use the Tor Onion Service for a known server and also uses TLS and TLS certificates to verify the connection – no configuration required. The implementation is written in the Go language, to avoid many common types of vulnerabilities that come from using unsafe languages.

Main features:
– Support of the latest version of OTR.
– Detection of Tor (if installed) and connection through it.
– Use of Tor Onion Service if it is known by the server in question.
– Use of separate Tor circuits for each account in order to make it harder to tie accounts together.
– Insertion of random delays before connecting to each account in order to make fingerprinting of connections between accounts harder.
– SRV lookup for the server over Tor if available.
– Import of account settings, OTR settings, fingerprints, and private keys from other clients like Pidgin, Adium, Gajim or xmpp-client.
– Saving of all your configuration, including OTR fingerprints and keys, in an encrypted configuration file.

TOR Messenger – a cross-platform chat program that aims to be secure by default and sends all of its traffic over Tor. It supports a wide variety of transport networks, including Jabber (XMPP), IRC, Google Talk, Facebook Chat, Twitter, Yahoo, and others; enables Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging automatically; and has an easy-to-use graphical user interface localized into multiple languages.

Tor Messenger is based on Instantbird, an instant messaging client developed in the Mozilla community.

The Instantbird transport protocols are written in a memory-safe language (JavaScript); it has a graphical user interface and already supports many natural languages; and it’s a XUL application, which means we can leverage both the code (Tor Launcher) and in-house expertise that the Tor Project has developed working on Tor Browser with Firefox. It also has an active and vibrant software developer community that has been very responsive and understanding of our needs. The main feature it lacked was OTR support, which we have implemented and hope to upstream to the main Instantbird repository for the benefit of all Instantbird (and Thunderbird) users.

As of March 2018, Tor Messenger is no longer maintained.
