ProtonMail – an encrypted e-mail service, which doesn’t let read messages by people other than a recipient and a sender.

ProtonMail is the world’s largest provider of encrypted email service with over a million users.

ProtonMail uses a modern user interface with a set of innovative features such as individual gestures on a screen and ability to send messages with a set date of removal.

From 2013, when CERN scientists founded ProtonMail, we (developers) were joined by citizens from around the world who support our mission to protect privacy on the web. Our mobile application was built thanks to a record campaign in which we raised $ 550,000. With the ProtonMail app, you can now create a free account with the ProtonMail inbox and start using a secure future box.

The notable features are:
– Messages are stored on ProtonMail servers in encrypted format. They are also transmitted in encrypted format between our servers and user devices.
– ProtonMail’s zero access architecture means that your data is encrypted in a way that makes it inaccessible to us. Data is encrypted on the client side using an encryption key that we do not have access to.
– We use only secure implementations of AES, RSA, along with OpenPGP. Furthermore, all of the cryptographic libraries we use are open source. By using open source libraries, we can guarantee that the encryption algorithms we are using do not have clandestinely built in back doors.

Quassel – a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core — much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, but graphical.

Re-attaching your client will show your IRC session in the same state as you left it in (plus whatever happened while you were gone), and this even when you re-attach from a different location. In addition, Quassel IRC can be used like a traditional client, with providing both client and core functionality in one binary. This so-called “Monolithic Client” completely hides the distributed nature, so for a purely local installation, Quassel IRC can be setup very easily.

Quassel IRC is developed for and tested on Linux®, Windows®, and MacOS X®. It should also run on any other platform that is supported by the Qt library. Third-party mobile clients for Android and iOS also exist.

Quassel IRC will have all the features you’d expect from an IRC client nowadays. It also innovates in many areas. For example, the GUI features a dockable nicklist and topic bar, or you can arrange your channel and query buffers in default or custom views, which are also dockable. This means that you can arrange your GUI as you please. The architecture allows for other innovations, such as on-demand creation of log files in custom formats from the backlog.

The core development team currently consists of the following people:
– Manuel “Sputnick” Nickschas
– Marcus “EgS” Eggenberger
