Project.im is a work in progress, launched Autumn 2018. We will keep improving content and responding to user feedback as we evolve.
Project.im is a cross-platform messaging platform which does not lock the user in to any particular application or closed group. It consists of a web-based interface and also enables users to run an app of their choice on their desktop and mobile device.
By using open source and open standards, users of Project.im can communicate with users on any other open XMPP platform in the same way that every email user can email every other email user.
See the getting started guide.
Applications are available for almost all operating systems. Use your favourite search engine to look for XMPP or Jabber clients that work on your computer. The getting started guide explains how to set these up.
