For a while now, I was looking for a good encrypted XMPP client, something that will support PGP for example.
I even considered developing one myself, But then I’ve found out about Psi.

Psi is a simple to use open-source XMPP client, that has PGP integrated into it. It works with GTalk (Google Chat) and Facebook. All you need to do is install it, generate your key (if you don’t have one already) and add your friends public key.

The software can function as normal XMPP client as well, Meaning if your friend doesn’t have it, you can discuss in plain-text mode. If you will send him an encrypted message, he will see an error message indicating that the message is encrypted: “[ERROR: This message is encrypted, and you are unable to decrypt it.]”.
