What is better for privacy? Signal or Telegram? I know XMPP is better then both of them.

wtv the privacy & security issues, telegram is amazingly fast, thousands of messages with zero lag on a lousy smatphone (and desktop). on signal and whatsapp that device will start burning and crash or hang for abit

Ya, telegram is really performant. I really wish they would adopt a 100% private stance, by defaulting private chats by default for smaller groups and 1-to-1 chats.

afaik, every modern chat program except for telegram is web based (and clients use electron); which is part of the reason why they’re all so slow and prone to lag. hopefully there will be adoption of tauri over electron some day soon, but for now, that means telegram will remain the only snappy chat software on the market.
