Had a skeg at Briar. It appears to only work for smartphones, specifically those running Android. As limited as it is, at least Signal has Signal Desktop going for it.

Signal is super easy to use and available on all platforms. Briar is still experimental and only for Android. It has potential, but it can't yet replace other messengers. Once versions come out for Linux and hopefully iOS and it's eventually audited, Briar could replace something like Signal.

I'm unaware so please any links/ explanations about the spookiness of signal would be helpful thanks. Been making extensive use of that as it seemed to me that they have a solid end to end encryption and definitely compared to whatsapp, a way less intrusive metadata collection.
