1Password on Mastodon

1password creating folders for browsers that I have not installed

Just something I noticed.
I have 1Password desktop application installed and when I was looking at ~/Library/Application Support/ folder I saw folders created for browsers I have never installed on the system(for Firefox, Vivaldi, Edge Beta/Canary/Dev, Chrome Beta/Canary/Dev, Arc).
I think this is due to the "connect with 1password in the browser" feature.
I think it is best not create these folders if the person don't have that specific browser installed.

    Hey @404,

    That's right, this is to enable your 1Password app to integrate with 1Password in your browser. I see where you are coming from but it may be a little tricky for us to see which browser/s a user has installed when they install 1Password and also it could cause a lot of work for users if they decided they would like to use another browser in the future as they wouldn't have the set up in place.

    I hope this makes sense!
