I will just say Discord. It grows like crazy and it is likely to become one day number one.

Discord is an interesting case. As a website, their service works fine, but their Electron client is a horrible resource hog. In the attachment you can see it launch a separate process for each server you have joined. It does nothing but chat and very poor streaming. It does have a friendly UI, but that is easily replicated with a native app such as Quarrel which start up in a fraction of the time and use less RAM.
