Hi there! This is not an issue to report any bugs or ask for new features.

I noticed that you advertise "resource efficiency" on the project's web page comparing to running Google Play Music in a browser. Considering that Electron is nothing but Chromium + Node.js on steroids and you use a webview tag to embed Google's web player, how do you manage to improve resource efficiency?

  1. Chrome as a whole uses more resources than Chromium (important distinction)
  2. Running a single website in an Electron webview is (by nature) more efficient than running an entire browser
  3. In Chrome / FF you would need a multitude of extensions to get the features this player gives you. In chrome each extension runs as a separate process which is horrific for resources consumption.

TLDR: By nature of implementation this player is more efficient 👍
