Is it Jabber much better than IRC?
I use both with Pidgin. I would say that Jabber is like a modern realization of the IRC idea.

Jabber uses the best parts of ICQ (MSN/Yahoo whatever IM you know) and IRC so they put conferences to IM so you can talk while you talk!

I agree, JID in the profile is needed.

I am pretty sure the most of bitcoiners have interest in BC as well as other open-source decentralized projects, the most popular of them being Jabber. Basically, it is an IM service (like ICQ, AIM, MSN), that... is distributed (so you can set up your own server). It is quite popular: many people have Jabber accounts even if they don't know about it (GMail/GTalk users, LiveJournal users, Facebook users (IIRC, since I never had a FB account) QIP Infium users...). It also has transport services, that you can register your other service accounts on and talk with those services' users within your Jabber client...

There are easy-to-install mods that add Jabber to the IM list for SMF forums, so this shouldn't be too hard.
