That’s only in the presence of others, though. I’m not attacking Briar in any way, I was just genuinely curious if there was any advantage of using it over Matrix when not around other people like in an activism setting.

O-okay, It includes forums and blogs, not just IM. I consider it a complete offline social network.

By now it is only capable of text but images and more are being worked.

So do the forums and blogs work like normal ones with html and js, or how do they work?

what do you mean with ‘like the normal ones with html and js’. do you mean that its built using that technologies or that you are allowed to use these on forum posts?

What are the advantages over Signal?

Signal is USA based, Signal uses Amazon servers. For Signal you need to expose your phone number. With Signal you need Internet access, but with Briar you can use local blue-tooth and WiFi internal addresses. Then there is the new pin feature of Signal which undermines Signal original privacy and security goals.
