Make Bitwarden a Progressive Web App (PWA)

The pop-out window for the browser extension is great, but sometimes I wish I could have a standalone app for my chromebook. I know I can install the Android app, but something native would function better, and still connect to the browser autofill. The community has a PWA, it would be nice of BitWarden did too.


Thank you for your post!

Trying to sign in the the PWA ( just opens a new tab in the browser (

In anticipation of the question, I am aware of the plugins for browsers but am not looking for that function, but the specific function of the PWA, i.e. an application for my desktop platforms based on my chosen profile in my preferred web browser.
