I need a better Matrix client for day-to-day sitting in the background and being a chat app stuff. Weechat is great for IRC but I've never got weechat-matrix to work. I've tried to mess with the CSS on Element to get the information density (inverse of huge whitespace) up but I've just broken it really. Does anyone use Matrix and feel that their client does a good job of replicating IRC-like usage? That's the client I want.


@irl Have you tried Hydrogen-web? It’s lightweight compared to element. hydrogen.element.io/

@plam I saw this at the FOSDEM talk. It's still full of whitespace. I don't particularly want something lightweight, I want something efficient that isn't making me scroll the screen up and down all the time.
