It looks like it won't be so simple for Steam. I just found out a couple of days ago that Steam only uses CEF to render the main content, and it actually looks like it's using GTK2 to render the window.

See https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/4924....

This is great news!

One of the worst things about wayland and electron has been super fuzzy apps if you use fractional scaling, because it didn't scale them correctly.

Excited to test Electron 12 for Beekeeper Studio.

Is this also a step towards easier screen sharing? The only reason I'm not on wayland is I occasionally need to screen share on Skype, zoom, and bluejeans.

I don't use any of those apps so I'm not familiar with their underlying technology but it looks like they are all Electron apps.

If that's the case, then yes, screen-sharing should be much easier once they migrate to Electron 12 since they will become native Wayland apps and will be able to use the Wayland protocols for screen-sharing.

And slack too (if it's written in Electron..)

Can't wait for a snappier slack experience.. that lag kills me.

Probably won't affect that unfortunately, I think that's slack itself blocking on api calls
