But think about it, what knows the web better than electron?
And that's why we made a web browser based on it.
@theZacAttacks I read somewhere Mozilla uses Electron internally to prototype.
@elomatreb I thought Brave was based on chromium? (which, tbh, is basically what electron is, right?)
@theZacAttacks It's even worse than I thought
It's based on their own custom Electron fork https://github.com/brave/muon
@elomatreb it seems that we're going down a rabbit hole that I'm not entirely comfortable exploring 😯
@theZacAttacks Oh no
I found a worse thing
A terminal emulator built with Electron (with a claimed "focus on speed", lol)
@elomatreb not gonna lie, looking through the project it actually seems cool, because of how extensible it is with hooks and themes.
That said, I still very much think it's silly to embed a terminal inside of a web renderer 🤷
@theZacAttacks Hot new idea for computers: Make normal and proper UI frameworks as easy to use and extensible as a full browser
@elomatreb @theZacAttacks Someone knowledgeable recently told me that chromium is used at the core of electron. So they are not equivalent programs, they fulfill different functions.
@Maltimore @theZacAttacks Well, true, it's not a full Chromium, but still most of it (just with all the potentially helpful security features disabled), and that shows in the resource usage
