      Tox vs Jami opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Tox is a great alternative to Jami.
      Tox is exactly like Jami, no centralized servers, p2p, and FOSS. Jami looks better but no dark mode. Tox looks... alright but it has dark mode

      loziniak Tox is more mature. Also it has a longer curated Bootstrap servers list. Unfortunately, both apps are not 100% distributed, since both have Bootstrap nodes an nameservers.
