Saw this question

and was wondering if a question, such as this, that is looking for either/or a web extension or a desktop application as a solution should be migrated to Super User?

Would "best practice" be to isolate the web application part of the question if it's going to be asked on this SE?

  • I just saw that it was migrated- so I'm guessing the answer was yes... Jun 1, 2013 at 13:16

It's one of those in-between places where it goes both ways really - since our FAQ mentions:

If your question generally covers … Browsers and their features relating to the use of a web application (Greasemonkey scripts for a web application, etc.)

then it's OK for us. While Super User does indeed accept questions on Web browsers / desktop applications, provided they aren't product recommendations.

I've migrated to Super User - and in general, Web Apps deals more with how do I get x done in web apps y(with the addition of using extension) - but Super User focuses more on getting things done with the browser/extension, regardless of the web app.

  • Makes sense - just trying to be a conscientious flagger! Jun 1, 2013 at 13:25
