Ok, so the article says

"According to the Zoom team, the only reason this localhost server continues to exist is that Apple’s Safari doesn’t support URI handlers."

Which is simply wrong. macOS (and i*OS) have supported custom URIs forever. What feature are they wanting? Do they want random websites to be able to install URI handlers?

They want to be able to re-install zoom for the user even if they have deleted it from /Applications.
