A colleague commented my switch from Postman to Insomnia with: “For me, Postman is close to perfect software.“ — And I would almost agree, it’s doing its job pretty well. But for me the marketing-first website of PM and the closed development really started to bother me. Insomnia may not be as rock-solid yet (although I haven’t found any show-stoppers in my daily work) and I wish it had a larger group of contributors, but it freed me from “vendor lock-in fear” and that alone makes it worth it.


also: Postman’s wannabe-funny startup screen (slooooww) is annoying.
