We didn’t read out their userAgent string, if that’s what you mean - but in this case I already know the answer regardless :)

This is about Linux only. Closer GTK and/ or KDE integration is what they need and want, especially when dark themes are applied.
Windows respondents often mentioned that they want to fix the Windows uglyness instead; especially the (context-)menus were mentioned as being incoherent and ugly across windows versions and apps.
