in Chromium Browser Development.
Back in 2016, busy developer Thomas_101 needed to stay signed-in to multiple Gmails. So fed up was he with signing in and out of accounts and switching between browsers to check his mail, he began building Wmail using Electron to do this automatically.
As it turned out, lots of other busy people needed Wmail too, and soon it was rebranded as Wavebox with thousands of users worldwide.Read the first Wavebox blog post >
But as the feature requests rolled in, Electron became a challenge to maintain, and the bug list rocketed. Not good. So Tom & the team made the epic decision to re-build Wavebox on Chromium,, the browser framework built and maintained by GoogleOur Chromium backstory >
Difficult though it was, the move to Chromium gave us the flexibility, reliability, and resilience we needed to build our work browser. This solid Chromium foundation enabled us to focus on adding productivity features, rather than fixing bugs.How we achieve parity Chromium releases >
Our online worlds are chaotic, cluttered, and disorganized, and we don't have the right tools to sort it out. Even though we do all our work on the web, the Electron-built desktop apps we use have insufficient web capabilities, are siloed, and therefore don't work together. Although improving, existing browsers aren't built to handle the increasing number of tabs and web accounts we use on a daily basis, which leaves us feeling disorganised and overwhelmed. But there is another way.
Our vision is to provide a hybrid solution that is as feature-rich as a desktop app, but works seamlessly online like a browser - the best of both, and built on Chromium.
Chromium has the flexibility and scalability we need to realize our vision. With the help of our users, we aim to build a better browser for work, power productivity with every click, and push Chromium to its limits.
