Is XMPP a thing of the past or do people just not use it in masses anymore? I'm looking for chats on FOSS software that are active and not dead (discounting IRC)
@jason123santa I'd love to use it if more people were to use it. I might be missing out on active groups but I haven't really noticed anything major yet
@renniezen XMPP is not dead, but also not very active and slower in development than wallet garden messengers like WhatsApp or Signal. But I'm using it, I like the freedom it offers me. I think here in the fediverse you could find many people using it, but outside in non-tech circles it's nearly unknown.
@Xystel Not gonna lie, I think Snikket is the closest to a casual-friendly XMPP solution I've seen thus far
@renniezen Unlike what others seems to believe, XMPP is far from dead. I've been using it for a long time and I would say it's probably more alive now than it has been in a long time.
I see a lot of development on both client- and server side.
