Jabber.org is the original instant messaging (IM) service based on XMPP, an open standard for IM.

History[edit]

Jabber.org was started in 1999 and has offered free XMPP accounts to users continuously since. It originally served as the development testbed for the jabberd server project.[1] After becoming more stable it also became more popular with end users. It is now a public production service, and one of the biggest nodes on the open XMPP network, with an average of 17,000 users logged in at a time (as of 2012).[2]

Jabber.org originally ran on what is now known as Jabberd14, in 2006 the service was migrated to ejabberd[3] on which it ran until 2010. In 2010 the service was migrated to Isode Limited's M-Link XMPP Server.[4]
