Minimal browser app window

Sometimes you dont want the whole browser, maybe you only want the single page.

My personal MP3 player

chromium --app=https://disco.koad.sh --class=discokoadsh $* >/dev/null 2>/dev/null & disown

Discord's desktop app is known to track the shit out of alot of things.

chromium --app=https://discord.com/channels/@me --class=discordwebapp $* >/dev/null 2>/dev/null & disown

My reference documentation

You can use this command to make a custom button in your favorite app launcher. Then any site can look and feel like an app installed on your machine, with web-browser based sandboxing enabled to stop un-wanted snooping of a normally installed app.

substitue chromium with your favorite chromium based browser.

google-chrome-stable --app=https://book.koad.sh --class=bookkoadsh $* >/dev/null 2>/dev/null & 
google-chrome --app=https://book.koad.sh --class=bookkoadsh $* >/dev/null 2>/dev/null & 
brave --app=https://book.koad.sh --class=bookkoadsh $* >/dev/null 2>/dev/null & 

note: the --class is set here so your app-launcher can link the opened window to the icon within the launcher.
