This is limited to Tribble users only, not just to Tribble. What this does is allow a user with an XMPP client (such as Pidgin, Trillian, Jabber, etc.) to connect to our global chat server and be able to talk to their in-game friends while they are not in game.
Right now, this feature is only available to users of the Public Test Servers of Champions Online and Star Trek Online. In the future, everyone will be able to use this feature regardless of wheter or not they have signed up to Tribble.
You can join any custom created channel using this protocol. I like to recommend joining community watch for users just looking to try it out. I can even be found in there from time to time!
