Any reasons for not preferring HipChat instead of IRC?
Any reasons for not preferring IRC instead of HipChat?
mostly because I am tired of vendor lock-ins. I use hipchat for multiple clients and its decent, but I am at the mercy of atlassian for yet another product if I use it for TC. I am open to pros/cons.
I get your point. I totally understand and partly agree: vendor lock-ins create problems, sooner or later.
I may say mainly because of a more decent support for mobile devices.
You don’t need fancy 3rd party things
I have been using IRCCloud (desktop/Android/iOS) and it’s quite great.
