All good with the Android, but disappointed this is Chrome. You would think they would have a FF plugin by now!

It's easier to build Chrome apps, and they are also more secure. It's one of the reasons Mozilla is trying to move away from the add-on model and adopt WebExtensions. When it does that we should start seeing Chrome/Firefox apps appear likely at the same time. It's why I hope Mozilla dismisses the backlash against the switch because some people can't live without their "deep" themes.

It’s not just "deep themes".

What if I want thumbnails of tabs on hover?

What if I want the browser UI to be colored in the theme color of the current webpage (similar to chrome mobile)?

I can do that today with FF.

I can’t do that with WebExtensions.
