    Synergy vs Barrier opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Synergy is a great alternative to Barrier.

    As Barrier is forked from earlier versions of Synergy, there is naturally a lot of feature set overlap. Whereas Barrier is focused on simplicity and ease of use, Synergy includes more robust features, including advanced settings for network, hotkeys, layout, security and diagnostics.
