I would use Briar more often, if there would be a "normal" desktop client. But I don't know, if that's possible.
Since I'm not a fan of chatting on my phone I'm really thankful for briar-gtk! 🙂 I open briar every day and every few weeks I have a chat with that one contact I have.
In my opinion a console client would make it very attractive as well.
@briar Frankly, what's stopping me is that the app doesn't run on Android 4.4, but I feel like the last Android 4 user on the planet by now.
