The bulb is confusing because people associate it with the jabber.org
website. They think they need to register an account on that website
and they forget there are other good services.

The title tag on the Coccinella website was changed to "Instant
Messaging Client with Whiteboard". The old title tag was something
like "Jabber Client with Whiteboard". "Instant messaging client" is
better known to non-geek users than "Jabber client" or "XMPP client".
The idea is to slowly remove *all* references to both "Jabber" and
"XMPP" on the website and in Coccinella. We will call us "open
standards based" instead, with an XMPP logo button next to it with a
link to http://www.xmpp.org/ or preferably a directory with XMPP
