I compared PGP and GPG Relay. GPG Relay is a not better "as is". It's only
better for most users as it makes encryption effortless. It makes
encryption VERY easy but obviously somewhat less safe. I believe it's very
important to spread encryption and thus I promote GPG Relay for casual
encryption. I believe it's a GUI that might spread encryption rapidly.
WinPT is good, but not easy to learn. I promote WinPT as well for more
sophisticated users. PGP is still more easy to use than WinPT, but WinPT
has improved significantly lately and continues to improve.
