@ghil As a oldschool irssi user I tried to use text clients in beginning, but after a while settled with Element Desktop. Just enable IRC style layout, dark theme and learn the key shortcuts and it's pretty nice.
"The matrix: URI scheme has just been officially accepted (safelisted) into the HTML standard!" - one important step to become widely accepted standard. Let's see how long until browsers actually support it. #matrix
Element rolls out bridge: Microsoft Teams crosses into Matrix's encrypted comms land https://reg.cx/3Zhz
@68km you know about Gemini & Cosmo communicators? I've got them both. They have software and hardware issues but they are still best phones I can buy today. The keyboard is same as on Psions and it's glorious.
@be it depends. I suppose you talk about Matrix. If you are on Matrix side, everything just works and you don't even notice some of the users are bridged. If you are on other side, the limitations of the platform may cause worse experience. For example IRC is very good, WhatsApp is bad as everything is sent via relaybot.
I wrote a new tool for fediverse: search Peertube via Matrix. It uses Sepia Search API to search on all participating public Peertube instances. You can also select any single instance. It's implemented as a module for Hemppa the bot - see docs here: https://github.com/vranki/hemppa#peertube-search #peertube #matrix
