  • Why do people like Arc web browser?
    I don't get it either. I use wavebox, which as far as I can tell has all the same features as Arc, as well more features. It's stable, fast and built off chromium just like Arc. Seriously, if whoever is reading this is looking for something like Arc, but without the wait to get into the beta.. Just get wavebox. - Source: Reddit / 13 days ago

    Wavebox - Looks like a very promising option. 2 services for free, $13/month or $99/year for unlimited. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Any way to continue to run Slack on Mac OS 10.13?
    I use WaveBox and run a version of the webapp there and find it very functional (and very portable). I also run Teams, and WhatsApp, and another instance of Slack in there. Worth a try. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • She switched! Best way to make a native app for a web-app?
    Wavebox (GitHub, Website): It's a Chromium-based browser with a full browser navigation bar, but it also has a sidebar for launching specific webapps, and you are able to create desktop launchers for specific sites. Downsides: Commercial software with subscription. And it's kinda cluttered since it is a full browser. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Ask HN: Tips for Reducing the Number of Inboxes
    I faced a similar problem, a whole bunch of sites that all have their own unread items, notifications and so-forth. I started writing a desktop app, Wavebox ( about 6 years ago to help me deal with this. It lets you add all your apps down the side of the window, each one with its own unread badge & notifications. Might be something that's helpful? - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • How to best manage multiple accounts?
    I really like Wavebox for this kind of thing: this would allow you to essentially run multiple browser instances under one umbrella. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Best alternatives now that Ferdi is gone
    Have you tried Wavebox? It's cross-platform, fully up-to-date Chromium, allows you to add multiple apps to the sidebar & lets you separate them into different cookie containers (like profiles). 2 apps for free, $99/yearly for everything. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • New in this week's beta
    Need tabs on certain URLs to never go to sleep, it wasn't possible before but is now. Under Settings > Sleep, you can set up rules to exclude certain URLs from going to sleep after a certain amount of time. Handy if you want everything to sleep aside from your really important sites ( is one of those... 🤣 ). - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Browser-Based web app aggregator: Wavebox or Stack?
    Been looking at and for aggregating multiple Gmails, Slack, etc. Would love to know how they compare if you've tried both. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Help! I want to listen in the browser without signing into chrome.
    If none of that will work, I think you're looking at getting permission to use something like GhostBrowser or Wavebox on your work computer, or to be allowed to use the SessionBox Chrome extension, which might be the easiest sell if you offer to eat the cost yourself. This is a first-world problem for sure, but I feel for you all the same; few things can make my workday shittier more quickly than bad music or no... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • A 55% Performance Improvement Upgrading Material-UI from v4 to v5
    A big part of our browser Wavebox, is the user interface and for some of this we utilize React & Material-UI. We've been a heavy user of Material-UI since 2016 and started out using version 0.14.2. Since then we've seen some big changes to the library and a few big migrations. Material-UI 5 recently launched and we wanted to share some of our experiences in upgrading from version 4. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Gmail app with unread badges?
    I'd like to migrate from Windows to a Plasma-based distro and one of the few things that I cannot (or don't want) to live without are badges for unread messages/items/ongoing processes on my task switcher icons. However, my favourite mail/etc. App wavebox ( apparently does not support task bar badges on Linux (tested on regular Plasma taskbar and on Latte Dock). - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
