    Almost everyone thinks Station is a great alternative to Franz.

    Had the services I wanted that Franz didn't, even with its recipes some apps were impossible to add.

    Beautiful design and more easy to configure, right. A lot of apps, right. But, no languages support (only english) and really not consume less ram. On my test : 4 services connected on both (Franz and Station), Station takes about 2,1 Go of Ram ! Franz consume 700 mo. In comparision, I have also 30 opened tabs in Chrome and it consume about 1 Go of my Ram.
