XMPP (also known as Jabber) is an open instant-messaging protocol. Many alliances in EVE use Jabber as a means of keeping in contact with one another when not logged on to EVE or on voice comms. Note that Jabber is not a program, it is the protocol spoken by a number of different programs such as Pidgin, Trillian, etc. to provide instant messaging services. EVE University used to run a Jabber server, however it was shut down in favor of Slack.
