Notifications started opening slack app again

MacOS 14.4.1/Chrome Browser 124.0.6367.93, notifications open slack app, and not slack on Chrome.

We don't have permission to uninstall slack app. Advise?

Can you make a Teams version for that? That would be awesome :)

Is this plugin open source?

If yes, can you link to the repo? :)

Doesn't work again :)

it'd be so great if you update the extension. When I try to open → Chrome shows me this dialog "https:// / Zbw1v9" message (remove spaces in that url).

No longer works with new design

Hi and thanks for this extension! Slack seems to have updated their design and unfortunately, the extension no longer works. I thought you might like to be aware!

How to make web-based Slack behave like it’s a natively running program?

I run Asana browser version like it’s a standalone app in Mac OS X Catalina (current). There’s a simple tool called Fluid that makes it act like a standalone app. Love it. Do you know how to run Slack like that, so its running the browser version in a sort of wrapper so it looks like a separate app rather than being in a browser tab? That way your extension could launch or switch to it, how cool would that be! It’s really helpful when a web-based version of a frequently used app has its own icon in the tray and can be toggled to like any other native program, Mac or Windows. One option is to run a specific browser only used for Slack so there aren’t any other tabs. It’s less than optimal but workable in a pinch.
