Im wondering this because it seems it is xmpps answer to the push problem on mobile devices.. If it is indeed implemented, in the account section there should be a message indicating wether the used server is also supporting this.

BOSH (or some solution with WebSockets) is needed for XMPP in the browser. Regular XMPP clients don't need it because they talk XMPP over TCP/IP directly.

maybe i misunderstood what bosh is, but i thought it also was a way for doing push transmissions

It's a workaround because regular HTTP doesn't support duplex communication. WebSockets do however. All that is relevant to the context of the client running in the browser which can't talk pure TCP/IP and has to implement XMPP over HTTP and the like. Normal XMPP clients don't have this issue and can have full duplex communication (i.e. push and pull) over TCP/IP.
