Which apps use WebView?
A couple years ago, Jeremy checked all the PRISM Break apps to see which ones
obviously used WebView. He doesn't have the exact numbers, but it was something

What's the matter with Chromium?
* Chromium manipulates its extension API to prevent extensions from blocking
ads. They claim this is to prevent performance problems, which is a lie because
Mozilla already solved those performance problems in production via a tiny
tweak to the extension API that didn't impact ad blocking. Someone makes money
when browsers cripple ad blocking, and it's not you the user.
**Chromium is an antitrust violator and this harms the user's interests.**
* Chromium does everything in their power to prevent users from escaping the
certificate authority system for TLS. Whether it's DNSSEC/DANE/TLSA,
perspective verification, HPKP, manual key pinning, OS-level key pinning,
or Namecoin, you can be pretty sure that if a mechanism exists to verify
TLS certificates without fully trusting public CA's, the Chromium devs have
tried to kill it.
**Chromium is hostile to users' security.**
