XMPP: The secure communication protocol that respects privacy
8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Jan 2022
Depending on when you last tried xmpp you might have experienced the OTR hell, which was never really codified 100% and spawned subtle incompatibilities between clients leading to weird and nondescript errors that never got addressed. Nowadays the popular clients support omemo (https://conversations.im/omemo/), which makes encryption just work™ out of the box and without hassle. The only exception to this is xabber, who are apparently afraid of law enforcement destroying their lifes should they implement proper encryption and also feel no need to support it anyways: https://github.com/redsolution/xabber-android/issues/540
