Another cross-platform, secure chat program, this time based on PGP. The main things that look interesting about are a more hands-on approach to public keys (more secure)and the file sharing. They also seem to be very ambitious: https://keybase.io/blog/keybase-chat .

Websites:

https://keybase.io/
https://github.com/keybase
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/C ... base.shtml

License: BSD 3 clause. I'm not clear on why this is "PGP" (commercial) vs. GPG (open source).

Status: untested, but this issue seems to suggest it's not portable, discussing something saved to appdata: https://github.com/keybase/client/issues/6688
