  1. You want to build a small application that lives in

    the user’s menubar or system tray.
  2. Electron uses a pretty modern build of Chromium. Electron: 1.4.6

    Node: 6.5.0 Chromium: 53.0.2785.143 V8: 5.3.332.47
  3. The web browser lives in a kind of sandbox with

    a bunch of restrictions in place in the name of security.
