To be very honest: all messaging apps suck. Someone has to do this:
- Having a desktop client that isn't Electron, looks like straight out of 1992 or is missing a lot of features (bad examples: Signal, Element, Gajim, Dino)
- Using end-to-end encryption, but without the sucky UX (bad example: Element)
- Being actually federated (bad examples: all of them and no, matrix.org is not federation, it makes the discovery UX suck even more as for some reason everyone is hosting their rooms over there)
- Having a bunch of features that aren't accessible through API hacks only (bad examples: Signal, Element)
- Having good mobile apps that implement most if not all desktop features (bad examples: almost all, even Telegram has some issues, but found their UX rather clean compared to other apps)
@koyuchan i really love matrix, but i dont use element. have you tried nheko? its a qt app written in c++. and idk what you think is the problem with matrix e2e
@LordMZTE not even that, you can skip that entirely as well. a good messaging app assumes there's no mitm and if it is it'll drop all connections. tofu or nothing.
