Poezio is an instant messenger client, for the XMPP (jabber) protocol only.
Its main goal was to handle only MUC (MultiUserChat) conversations, and anonymous authentication. This way, it can be used just like a classic IRC client (no registration needed, just run the software and join the rooms you want). The point is to get a console client, with the geekness and the (relative) “anonymity” of IRC clients like irssi or weechat, for people used to these clients and repulsed by the too high number of graphical Jabber clients.
But, poezio also is in fact a full-featured Jabber client, supporting the roster, one-to-one conversations and many other features.
