Does any one of you have recommendations for a good mastodon/fediverse desktop client for linux?

I'm trying right now, but I don't like the slack-like UX and how it handles multiple accounts and keeps loosing my position in the various streams.

I think I recently saw something about another client addressing exactly this, but I can't find it any more and I'm not sure anymore, if I didn't just dream that...
