    TL;DR: What John, Logan and Tyson wrote.

    Considering that the Web portal currently includes WebGL and either Audio Context or Canvas fingerprinting code (which defeats the purpose of having anonymous private email), I'd far prefer to access it using Brave or Firefox in Strict mode and armed to the teeth with security and privacy plugins than risk using a custom browser that potentially doesn't support them and/or isn't open source. Even then, I'm not happy with the current state of affairs.

    For the same reason, I'm not using the bridge, which uses Electron (a technology created by Google). Change the bridge to remove Electron and switch to Qt or GTK+ (even if you have to provide different binaries for different OSs or write it in Python/Cython with PySide and write installation instructions; Christophe Gohlke's unofficial wheels for Windows [not that anyone who's privacy/security-concious uses that, of course; unencrypted OSs are so last decade] are a breeze to install) and I'll be happy. Hell; give me access to the source code and *I'll* have a stab at doing that. (I have over ten years' dev experience. It shouldn't be too hard, even though I currently don't know C/C++.)

    If one sends email using HTML format, then sure, these are definitely necessary. However, they're pointless if one's mail is encrypted with PGP, because what one gets on receiving such a mail is the HTML source (which is not as easy to parse as plain-text or markdown, even for a Web developer).

    If you're not using ProtonMail with PGP, why bother?

    Personally, I'd like to have the option to choose to send and receive *all* my mail as plain text (with HTML format mails converted to Multimarkdown or Markdown Extra on arrival). I can't find that feature in the settings and suspect it has been removed.

    As a S/W and Web Developer with UX knowledge/experience, I disagree with the premise of this request. One should always have a default sending address. However, that address shouldn't change (be remembered for anything other than the thread) when one chooses a different address. If that happens, then there's definitely a bug.

    I'm going to second John's suggestion of having a checkbox for this.

    Using filters and directories (there are no such thing as folders unless you're working with hard copy) works fine for me. If I could down-vote this, I would.
