It is an Instant Messaging Client. (like ICQ, MSN, GoogleTalk,
AIM). You can find lots of information about jabber in their
website. I just copied a little introduction part:
Jabber is best known as "the Linux of instant messaging" -- an open,
secure, ad-free alternative to consumer IM services like AIM, ICQ,
MSN, and Yahoo (see the IM quickstart). Under the hood, Jabber is a
set of streaming XML protocols and technologies that enable any two
entities on the Internet to exchange messages, presence, and other
structured information in close to real time. Jabber technologies
offer several key advantages:
* Open -- the Jabber protocols are free, open, public, and easily
understandable; in addition, multiple implementations exist
for clients, servers, components, and code libraries.
* Standard -- the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has
formalized the core XML streaming protocols as an approved
instant messaging and presence technology under the name of
XMPP, and the XMPP specifications have been published as
RFC 3920 and RFC 3921
