The EFF – you should know them already – published a list that compared messengers in regards to some criteria that should be important to all of us in 2014.
The scoreboard is quite easy to understand just check the categories in the header of the table and scroll down to the messenger you want to inspect.
The scoreboard however does not cover all important topics. For example they do not consider the platform the messenger is running on. Since many of them run on multiple platforms anyway it’s your turn to chose and find out wether the base system is secure or not. *hint hint – closed source cannot be check for backdoors*
