Riot (formerly known as Vector) is a Matrix web client built using the [Matrix React SDK](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-react-sdk).
Riot is officially supported on the web in the last 2 major versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. For Riot on Desktop (electron),
only the officially published app is supported. Other browsers and packages may work, however official support is not provided.

For accessing Riot on an Android or iOS device, check out [riot-android](https://github.com/vector-im/riot-android)
and [riot-ios](https://github.com/vector-im/riot-ios) - riot-web does not support mobile devices.

situation, but it's still not good practice to do it in the first place. See
https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/issues/1977 for more details.
The same applies for end-to-end encrypted content, but since this is decrypted
on the client, Riot needs a way to supply the decrypted content from a separate
origin to the one Riot is hosted on. This currently done with a 'cross origin
renderer' which is a small piece of javascript hosted on a different domain.
To avoid all Riot installs needing one of these to be set up, riot.im hosts
one on usercontent.riot.im which is used by default.
https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/issues/6173 tracks progress on replacing
this with something better.
