This is to all the developers of Jitsi, but particularly anyone who helped with polishing the UI/UX and making it seamless. I am extremely picky, but I’ve found Jitsi’s user-facing frontend well designed, uncluttered, and truly intuitive. But it’s not just me, my friends have chimed in that if I post this, they want to thank you as well.
The fact that it’s simple enough for anybody is a huge plus. Your design is usable by people of all technical abilities from grandparents to kids. More than that, it lowers the barrier to use for everyone: I overheard one tech-savvy friend of mine explaining to her boyfriend why Jitsi beats Zoom: “It’s so easy: you just open a [expletiving] URL!” (She also mentioned the “Free Software” angle since he cares about that.)
I know that “simple to use” designs are rarely simple to create. It takes a lot of work to have a clean, coherent vision that “just makes sense”.
So, thank you from all of us users to all of your developers who have made Jitsi possible!

P.S. If you’d like specific examples of what are the best features of the design, I’d be happy to provide them. But, I have a feeling you may already have them listed in a design document.
