I don’t use Chrome and hate Google’s near-monopoly over the direction of the modern web.
That said… I got a tiny PR merged into Nativefier that enables builds on arm64, e.g. Pinebook Pro. https://github.com/jiahaog/nativefier/releases/tag/v10.1.0
Nativefier uses the open source Electron and Chromium code to wrap up a site into a “native” binary. So for anyone missing those proprietary Electron apps (Slack, Discord) that run like crap in other browsers but weren’t build for arm64, you can now make your own version!
@bilelmoussaoui @aperezdc and it really seems to be more of a case of Slack being only written for Chrome/Electron than WebKitGTK not supporting anything specifically. Other sites work fine in WebKitGTK, but Slack is just broken, at least on Pinebook Pro which is the entire reason I'm making a wrapper—the proprietary Slack app is not built for arm64.
@bilelmoussaoui @cassidyjames but of you want to run as Flatpak, you would have the same issue with Nativefier, or Chromium trying to add .desktop files when they are running inside a sandbox... having a portal for allowing applications to add launchers is something we should be eventually looking into.
