Riot
====
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.
