have you guys already heard of Matrix?

It's some sort of modern IRC, using JSON to format messages. It's more
modern than IRC. Features are:
 * Source code formatting and highlighting in messages
 * multiple devices
 * history + history synchronization between multiple devices
 * possible E2C encryption

and many more.
In theory it will be a decentralized protocol, but there aren't that
many servers yet and actually only one working server-software

Many projects, especially tech-based ones like the Rust programming
language already use the service. 

Personally I think it's an enormous progress to IRC. I would give it a
chance if I were you :)
