Note that as of January 2020, the end-to-end encryption in the app is only opportunistic. Even if you added proofs the app doesn't check them, and there is no way to manually verify the encryption keys. You're trusting the Keybase server for security, which means it is not end-to-end encrypted because the server can intercept messages if it wishes to do so.

Focus is on securing Zoom, but future impact to Keybase itself is unknown.

Wikipedia: Eric S. Yuan (Chinese: 袁征; pinyin: Yuán Zhēng; born 1970) is a Chinese-American billionaire businessman, and the CEO and founder of Zoom Video Communications, of which he owns 22%.[3]

Eric S.Yuan seems to have an unusual relationship with China ⚠ and should be used as a warning

So far the only Dropbox alternative I found that provides rendering HTML content – a feature Dropbox discontinued in 2016 (see https://www.dropbox.com/help/files-folders/public-folder ).
