I am missing feature $x
Neo is still in very active development. You can look if your feature is already on the list, and open a github issue if it’s not on the list.

A webclient? Isn’t javascript really slow/resource intensive?
Neo is really fast, except for occasional network lag.
Just takes another tab in your already running browser, no full chromium for every program (Electron)

How does it work?
Neo runs in your browser. It’s made using react.js, communicating over the Matrix network.
