TorChat is a basic instant messaging client focused on security and anonymity. Unlike other tools, it requires almost no setup: just share your randomly-generated username (like "bkmworoidjwxz5l") to connect with other TorChat users. These are easily created/discarded to help maintain anonymity.
The program uses the Tor network's hidden services feature to send messages between peers with authentication and encryption based on public key exchange.
Also available for Linux.
