According to Ramiro Saenz, trojan is a false positive (https://github.com/saenzramiro/rambox/issues/569) due to the way some electron apps install: (no admin permissions required) is considered suspicious by really strict AV and Firewall tools (https://github.com/MarshallOfSound/Google-Play-Music-Desktop-Player-UNOFFICIAL-/issues/1232#issuecomment-227963465).Still, this needs work from developers to clear the waters. I would invite anyone trying the software to raise this issue until the devs properly solve this.Otherwise it's a perfect replacement for 1 app to rule them all (a la Franz) with more services by default (79) and by being open source, the ability to add whatever site, should you need/want to (ServiceList.js model from https://github.com/saenzramiro/rambox/tree/master/app/model).
Good tool to keep all you common web services and applications in one place.
Overall a decent tool available freely and open source.
Works well with Linux (Manual configuration might be required when installing).
Sadly, rambox went along the same path franz did and is now freemium. Both Franz and Rambox are open source still (see github) but both will try to sell you their premium services.
I understand your point of view, but also as a reminder, Open Source doesn't necessary rime with Free, it means Freedom... [https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.en.html#four-freedoms].

Spend with this app a few years and it's getting more sluggish with each update. Switched today to Station app and it works way better and faster than rambox. Reason to search for something else was that my rambox gmail stopped working. Tried to search for solutions etc. with no effect. Luckily for me Station app has everything i used in rambox.
Have been using it for about a year now on one of my systems and I think it needs a lot of improvement.
The password implementation is not as great as it could be. It only asks for it once, and for your account to be secure, you need to close the app.
Telegram works but the interface is worse than what it is in a browser
Whatsapp updates are not applied as smoothly as they should be.
The app has a problem with erratic behaviour. The close, minimise buttons on the top right corner frequently disappear
If you are using a multi-monitor set-up, moving the app from one monitor to another is impossible, when it decides to act-up!
Pity there is no spelling check/ auto-correct, like in Franz
yes at the end it is better to use another specific browser (or simply another profile with brave or firefox) and to add few plugins you like and to keep all those TAB open and to automatically reopening them.
it's not much more than would you can do with a web browser, but this small things make life much easier;)
