imo.im and similar services have one disadvantage: you give keys to all of your communications to additional 3rd party (as if microsoft wasn't enough)

3rd party? Microsoft own Skype.

You give your keys to imo.im.

They said additional 3rd-party, which implies MS is a third-party?

It is. Isn't it?

They aren't. They're the provider of the service.

...and a third party to your conversation with a friend.
