Very interesting, do you think it’ll cope with auto-cpufreq ? Favorite Lesser-Known Apps? - #71 by nam1962

WebApp Manager, takes care of building profiles & desktop files for PWAs. Used it in a previous distro and never looked back. Turns out, it is in the community repo too!
Another one I like is Anki, but it’s more of a study tool. Also it’s not updated anymore in arch, but the current version suits my addons best, so not gonna take over its maintenance.

Hi, for PWA, I do use bauh (that seem to be browser agnostic but I didn’t inquire)

auto-cpufreq just change the CPU speed,it doesn’t interfere with process priorities so you can use both at the same time.
