Yes, I use XMPP now as my main communication platform next to e-mail (which you can either encrypt by using PGP with fingerprint
8A31 8CA0 1EA7 B381 or Tutanota) and this is fine for a couple of reasons.
However the reasons why I chose XMPP over any other messaging platforms are the following.
- XMPP is fast and stays fast
- XMPP servers don’t hog much memory
- More clients available
- It’s extensible thus enables 21st century communication
- Also it’s very easy to set up a XMPP server
This sounded good to me which then made me jump on the XMPP hype train. 🚂
Also another reason why I chose XMPP is that a lot of people in the fediverse are also using this platform.
