 Looking at OTR

OTR is fine. My chats are not all that exciting so sniff away I don't worry about them all that much.

"OTR was developed by two security researchers, Ian Goldberg and Nikita Borisov, at the University of California at Berkeley. The software provides standard security features like authentication, to ensure you are talking to the person you think you are, and encryption, so no one can tap into your conversation. In addition, OTR introduces two new security concepts to instant messaging -- deniable authentication and perfect forward secrecy."
