I've been trying out #Matrix the past couple of days: 'An open network for secure, decentralized communication'.
It's kinda like the Mastodon of messengers, or more accurately the fediverse of messengers, although calling it a #messenger is a bit of an understatement.
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I think it's great! A much needed solution to an increasing problem, not sure why I held of from checking it out for so long! 😅
I've noticed Bryan Lunduke complain about how bad electron is, but I'm still wondering what's so bad about it. Works fine here 🤔
The problem with electron is that it wastes a lot of system resources.
An electron app is essentially a website/web app bundled with its own browser window.
Each electron app has a chromium instance at its base. When you run multiple electron based apps, resource usage quickly adds up, which is why electron based stuff is generally frowned up.
@Glectonzo - Yes, it's still in beta.
