I have read articles from about 1 year ago saying that WebExtensions are now (i.e. a year ago) available in the nightly build of Epiphany for Gnome 43. As of November 2023, I don’t have them in Epiphany 45.1, stable version, so I am assuming it has not been merged yet. Is there an expected time when it will be?
The reason I ask is that I am setting up a laptop for my 11 year old son that is using Chromebook hardware and the total storage available is 16 GB for everything including operating system. I prefer to avoid flatpaks as they tend to be expansive in the dependency sizes, and I prefer to run stable versions of software for kids, so I am looking to make a decision as to whether to just wait for it to be merged into the stable branch or whether I should experiment further.
Epiphany is already excellent but extensions could push it over the edge towards perfect for the use case.
