Dino is a modern open-source chat client for the desktop. It focuses on providing a clean and reliable Jabber/XMPP experience while having your privacy in mind.
Dino is secure by default: Your chats never leave your computer unencrypted. Once you enabled end-to-end encryption via OMEMO or OpenPGP, only you and your chat partners can read your messages, but not your server administrator or anyone else. If you want to increase your privacy, Dino allows you to disable read and typing notifications – globally or only for specific contacts.
Being free and open-source software, anyone can inspect and modify Dino. This means that you don’t have to trust a single company or development team. Dino is developed on GitHub by an open community where everyone can contribute – by creating a bug report, translating Dino into their language or making a pull request.
Dino is built on the XMPP protocol, an internet standard for decentralized communication – the instant messaging pendant to email. Decentralization means you don’t have to rely on a single provider or company, instead you can use a federated world-wide infrastructure. You can even host your own server!
