At Cryptocat we are developing an easy to use instant messaging tool that
is available in 34 languages. It encrypts all of your conversations,
preserves your privacy and works in your browser.
If you are a Mexican journalist and your opponent is not highly skilled in
information technology intelligence (not a government, but a drug cartel)
then you should try Cryptocat. It does not leave a record of conversations
anywhere and does not transmit anything in the clear.

Make sure to read the warnings on the site to get familiar with the app's
