Delta Tauri

DeltaChat implemented in Tauri

The Delta Chat Desktop app is currently built with Electron and shipped to end-users on all platforms and many app stores. Delta Tauri will port it to instead use Tauri on all platforms, minimizing resource consumption and improving security. The download size is expected to decrease to around a fifth from the present situation, and the use of a system web view instead of the Electron-shipped full Chromium browser improves security because users benefit from operating-system managed security updates. Delta Tauri will also provide an important stepping stone towards a potential Delta Chat Web client, an often requested feature from users.
