I met the person who implemented Signal as a Chrome App, which I believe was adapted to the desktop app
could ask them questions if you have specifics
though it was a 1 month project for them, they might remember

Cool! Is a Chrome App not a "Desktop" app? The "Signal Desktop" name references the Chrome app?

If I'm not mistaken, Signal Desktop is a Chrome app. Yes? (That's what it said when I signed up to get waitlisted to use it...)

I think signal desktop is a port to an electron app
at least based on what I understood the other night
I haven't looked up either, so if you have read something contradictory it's more likely you're correct
my channel was noisy, literally
we were at a bar!

Yeah, no, when I launch "Signal Private Messenger" on my "desktop," it opens Chrome. Then Chrome insists on staying open "in the background" like for other Chrome apps.
Would've been nicer with something like Electron, maybe that's in the works?
