Ever since chat stopped working on Facebook's website, I have been looking for an alternative to the bloaty spyware-laden Messenger app. There are many alternatives, many of which even share the same name -- very confusing.
Which one would you recommend?
Part of a multiprotocol app.
Supports OTR, with ability to import private keys.
Saves chat history.
No unreasonable permissions granted! No location, local phone contacts, local files, SMS or phone access---nothing but network access, which is all it needs.
Supports user searching.
No new accounts need to be made. I want it to log onto Facebook directly, using the same protocol Messenger uses.
Video and audio not necessary.
Need not be free.
