Honestly, give me your Electron "app" as a proper web app and at least I can use my own browser for it rather than a shitty chrome fork.
@mjog to be fair, Electron is not just about app distribution (over HTTP or as an installable app bundled with a browser), it also provides up all sorts of Node.js APIs for the "app" to (ab)use, like direct FS access. Web pages are sandboxed (well at least somewhat), so some Electron "apps" cannot possibly work as web sites.
@bugaevc Yup, but in that case give me a decent native app packaged for Flatpak or I'll probably go elsewhere. :)
Signal is the only Electron app I use, and only because it's the least worse messaging app that I can get normal people to use.
@mjog and I've managed to not have to use Electron "apps" at all for a few years now :)
@bugaevc You are a very lucky person then 😊
