Don't know if I should be happy or sad about it. If I want a cross-platform app using Electron – I'd go for Postman.
What makes Paw awesome is being a native app tailored for macOS. With this, I have a feeling they'll eventually abandon it.

In general I'm pretty pissed about how many of the modern apps are Electron, that is basically a full-blown instance of Chromium.
* Apps are huge, both in terms of storage and memory
* They're very power hungry
* I don't want a multitude of Chrome instances running on my machine


And finally, the "cross-platform" aspect is just bad. Electron is a lazy way to introduce it. You'd think it's good, but such apps still suffer from bad feature parity.
