Oh I fully agree with that! I'm just saying that, as long as you can't peek into a server (whether ran by a non-profit, commercial party, volunteer... you name it, you cannot verify anything on the server side so imo, just that its decentralized doesn't mean it should be trusted more on that regard.
I'm a huge signal fan but I'd love to also use Matrix and such.
I just find that it reveals too much metadata and the lack of a sealed sender option...
True, but for 99 percent of everyone I know, self hosting isn't an option and then you have to trust the host because they'd (obviously) not let you have a look on the server to check what's actually running on there.
So that basically also comes down to complete trust, but when you add the fact that the host can access all metadata... I surely hope they don't store metadata/messages longer than necessary and provide a sealed sender option.
Nice list, only sad to see that end to end encryption and metadata handling aren't included, which are very important regarding messengers.
And this is the exact reason why I try to use Chromium-based browsers as little as possible.
Firefox as main browser, Chromium only in case something really doesn't work on Firefox and I really need it.
I don't have a Google account so it wouldn't change much for me but 🖕 Google anyways.
