Really impressed with how fast #matrix adoption is moving.
Gitter and Teamspeak are native Matrix clients; Thunderbird has Matrix support in its' nightly builds, and now Firefox 90 will have native Matrix support!
@smpl I like that Matrix replicates whole rooms instead of just passing messages. This helps when when joining a conversation late, or in a split network scenario, or after downtime.
HTTP/JSON is stupid simple, and means that I can write clients that run entirely in a browser. (Cactus would be very different on XMPP)
E2EE is default in DMs, and the key verification method is so smooth.
The spec is much more well-defined and less cherry-picky than XMPP.
@smpl but also I like the spirit of the community, element and matrix.org in general.
Element feels like a "richer" client, like more of a discord replacement than an IRC replacement.
I think the focus on interop is really important, I use bridges to matrix extensively.
Element has done a lot of good for matrix adoption: Mozilla, KDE, GNOME, Der Bundeswehr, the French gov 't among others have all adopted Matrix, finally replacing IRC.
@smpl Luckily IRC, XMPP and Matrix all interoperate really well, so we don't all have to choose the same one 🤠
