Between Slack and Spotify, I've decided to move back to websites in tabs rather than native apps. I'm just done with websites wrapped in packages.

Curiously, the impetus to this switch was having to install Spotify on linux with a package that insisted on storing files in a non-dotfile path in my home directory. The hell I need that home pollution.

@secstate I had a similar experience with DIscord. I lost universal hotkeys, but the experience was so much better than the native app that I can't see myself going back anytime soon.

If only plasma browser integration allowed media keys to interact with Spotify via a web browser...

@BadAtNames Indeed ... I just don't use those very often. The bigger thing for me is not having helm-spotify working in :)
