Where I currently live and work there are restrictions on some protocols such as XMPP, so I can't use Pidgin or similar software anymore.

What is a reliable, web-based alternative to Pidgin that supports OTR?

Note: I am not looking for a self-hosted client.

OTR is not the only requirement but the most important one for me at the moment. I'll take any other XMPP extension as a bonus. Encrypted voice and video chat would be greatly appreciated but not essential, text chat being the primary function of the app.

https://conversejs.org/ supports OTR

This is available on their page or to include in your own webpage.

    What exactly did you like about it, and what did you not like as much? How does the software match each requirement in the question? Thanks!
