"cryptocat can be really useful when you need chat privately from an internet bar, a kiosk, a computer in hotel,etc"

When was the last time you were able to set up Tor on a machine in an internet bar, a kiosk, or a computer in hotel?

Because from what I'm hearing, the only time cryptocat is actually secure (any more secure than plain old SSL) is when it's being used through Tor.

Forget that, an internet bar, kiosk or hotel computer probably has a keylogger on it, either installed by the system owner or by nefarious types. It's not safe to type anything personally identifying, login to any of your services, etc. from this kind of terminal.
