Do not force installing Chrome extension

not-planned

#1

Do not force installing Chrome extension upon logging in when extension is not installed or browser is in incognito mode.

Sometimes people need to log in to an account from a guest computer or in incognito modem (for example, when needing to use two paperpile accounts at the same time). Currently, a prompt window pops up that cannot be closed until extension is installed.

Please have an option of discarding / closing the prompt window.


#2

At the moment Paperpile only works with the Chrome extension. We have plans offering a basic version that works without the extension and in other browsers. But for now the extension is not optional but required.


#3

However, this feature would be really useful for Android and iOS users that are not included in the beta and need to use Paperpile from their devices.

Really, cross-platform portability, Word integration and auto-complete author names and journals (to ensure consistency) are the three features that prevent Paperpile to be the best app out there
