Edge web apps are great, and I like that Edge Extensions is used inside the apps.

One feature request that would further improve this though, would be to make us able to enable/ disable extensions per installed web app.

 

For instance, I want dark mode from Dark Reader in some apps, but in other apps I don't want that. Well, bad example, Dark Reader has a user maintained list of domains to either dark mode or not dark mode. But you get the point.

@Olav Rønnestad Birkeland this is another good suggestion. We have heard this request from other app developers as well. I can imagine some media streaming app creating an extension that they only want to run in their PWA; I can also imagine that after you install a password app, you don't need that enabled for a lot of your PWAs.

 

This is definitely something we want to consider.
