Jabberwocky is a client software for the Jabber Instant Message Protocol. This is Free Software licensed under the GNU General Public License. Jabber is an instant messaging system, similar to ICQ or AIM, yet far different. It is open source, absolutely free, simple, fast, extensible, modularized, and cross platform. Server modules (transports) allow cross messaging between other instant messaging networks (AIM, ICQ, MSN, IRC, etc). Using Jabber (XMPP) transports could be dangerous. Providing passwords when adding Jabber transports could result in your password being stolen and used by unethical server operators.
