    Discord

    So, one of the biggest issues to anyone who uses Leopard/Snow Leopard is Discord. Personally I can't go without it since I started using it in 2015. How do you guys run discord on your machines (assuming you use Discord)? Using the web app in Firefox ESR 45 is kinda slow on my early 2006 MBP...
