i have never used it . but whats wrong with default bitcoind wallet ? i.e. bitcoin core

if you want more secure wallet, then go for hardware wallet/. any software wallet can be hacked, or in worst case the passwords can sniffed using keylogger or something like that.,

so for me Electrum wallet is just another wallet., and if you have anti virus , anti malware installed on your computer then its safe to use.

Electrum is definitely one of the best desktop wallets out there, if you want to go that route. The user-interface is very easy to use and features options for newbies and advance users. A feature I liked, when I experimented with this, was opening multiple wallets using the same seed.

I have bought a hardware wallet since then, so I prefer hardware wallets over desktop wallets now. ^smile^

I've been using it for years without a single hitch... ThomasV (the developer) is a nice guy, and is usually willing to help out people who run into problems.

I don't really understand the question here... Are you asking what will happen to the electrum users if there will be a lasting fork?
