It's my understanding that the browser extension, formally 1Password X, will work with the desktop app replacing the older version of the extension. This way the desktop app can authenticate the browser version so we don't have to keep signing in when the browser closes or use a secondary extension to keep Chrome open in the background.
Is this a thing yet? If not, do you know when or is it still TBD?
