Re: Matrix IRC bridge considered harmful

Can you explain to me what the big issue with web clients are? I keep hearing over and over again that developers don't want to use web clients, either in browser or with Electron, but I don't recall ever hearing a "why" in there.

Perhaps my language was too strong.

Honestly I think you should just poll the community to see whether it
wants to use Rocket.Chat or not. I'm assuming support will be pretty
low, because I don't think many devs will want to keep a web browser
window dedicated to chat where a GNOME client would otherwise work. But
if I'm wrong and people like it, then I will shut up, and you can
proceed. :)

Basically anything would be better than status quo, messages going to
