If we do end-to-end encryption, we can guarantee privacy. But if we
depend on a centralized service, we are creating dependence, for some
reason if the service provider is shut down, you are out of luck. Also I
couldn't figure out what protocol they use from their FAQ. So my
recommendations are TextSecure or XMPP/OTR. I use Loqui IM on my Firefox
OS phone (there is no TextSecure yet for Firefox OS) with OTR support.
On desktop, you can use pidgin with otr plugin.
