Now this great little utility saves it's settings in the local folder making it totally portable. THANK YOU, Nir !

1.71 works for ie7 (even though nirsoft does not claim it) it also works for vista (with the caveat that you cannot get rid of the signature warning even if you unblock in the file properties) 1.70 Works with Vista/ie7/portably but does write some items to registry

Ricochet is a simple, text-only instant messenger built for security and anonymity. The program uses the Tor network hidden services feature to hide one's identity and connections are encrypted end-to-end. The program intentionally does not save chat history.

Note that unlike most IM tools you do not need to register a username, instead generating a unique address (e.g. "ricochet:rs7ce36jsj24ogfw"). Other Ricochet users can use this address to connect with you. These addresses can be generated and discarded as needed.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac and Linux.

@Wolfghost: I think it's because smaragdus became R2.
So it's: Andrew Lee R5 + Toxteth O'Grady R3 + smaragdus R2 = 10 points
