Yeah, very imaginative title… But well, here is why gitter just sucks compared to all chat things I saw:
- You have to sign in, but you can see the lobby or whatever without being logged on via the JS thing
- The IRC bridge requires you to sign in or it throws you out of the server…
- You can only sign in with Github or Twitter
I’m really glad I’m more of a sysadmin/netadmin than a developer… at least it doesn’t tries to please my kind. Seriously with all this DevOp shit don’t make it more hard for cypherpunks/privacy-nerds.
