      Matrix.org vs Openfire opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Zergling_man Openfire is server software for the XMPP protocol. Matrix is a protocol itself. matrix.org is both the design board for that protocol, and a server that uses it. Should be an alternative to XMPP directly, instead.
