The Tor Project is working on a way to use its anonymous network to protect online chat conversations, but the project is nowhere near completion. When it is finished, the Tor Instant Messenger Bundle (TIMB) will be a client for accessing chat services such as Yahoo, Facebook and Google while using the Tor protocol, a means of anonymizing (but not encrypting) Internet traffic to protect users privacy. TIMB would be an alternative for people who care about security and privacy but dont want to switch to an entirely separate, privacy-focused encrypted chat service such as Cryptocat or Wickr.
