Thunderbird will support matrix protocol out-of-the-box in version 102 (due June) and is available in v91 beta now.

I just tried it, you go to preferences, edit config, add a string “chat.prpls.prpl-matrix.disable” and set it to false and matrix becomes an available option in the chats part of your account setup…now to find my old password…

Wish they would implement support for OMEMO in XMPP as well but this is cool too.

Was completely unaware of this, it’s pretty cool!

I just tried it and it’s still a bit wack, but it’s also still just a beta.

I wonder if they implemented it with one of the Rust libraries or just implemented it in JavaScript. I can’t imagine that they would want to implement it in C++, given the history of problems there.

“prpl” (protocol plugin) is the term used in libpurple for a plugin, so it would appear it’s using libpurple as the backend, thus purple-matrix; however, that plugin is deprecated as of a week ago.

edit: I was mistaken, it appears to be using the javascript SDK.
