A GPL'd, cross-platform multi-protocol tool with VOIP and whiteboard (available for many users in chat room).

  • Cross platform and at least claims to be portable on every platform ()
  • Plugin system, among them MeBeam plugin (video conferencing and a few other goodies)
  • Search people in dictionary
  • Avatars and emoticons, Themes
  • Secured connections (TLS and SASL)
  • QuickTime integration in whiteboard (Mac OS X and Windows)
  • Text-to-speech (Mac OS X and Windows)
  • Compression support to save bandwidth
  • Proxy support
  • Contact actions (buddy pounces)
  • Innovative auto-away features
  • 25 languages

The only negative I can find is that it doesn't support OTR encryption. Uses around 38 megs of RAM while running on Win XP SP3.


PORTABLE? Initial tests looks portable, but not stealth:


Make sure after following the portable instructions that you delete the app data folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Coccinella\

How to make Coccinella portable?
Wed, 24/09/2008 - 07:17 — sander

You can create a cross-platform portable Coccinella USB stick this way:

  1. Create a folder on the USB stick.
  2. Put in this folder the Coccinella binaries (for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X). Of course you do not necessarily need all binaries, for instance if you do not want to use the USB stick on Windows computers.
  3. Then open on each platform (Windows, Linux and Mac OS X) the binary for that platform.
  4. Go each time to Preferences and enable the checkbox option "Store preferences in same folder as program" (on the General page).
  5. Preferences will now be saved on the USB stick in the same folder as the binary.
