@1Password trying the 8 beta for Mac. Is it possible for 1Password to stay resident *without* the menu bar icon?

1) Turn off menu bar icon
2) Close 1P
3) Click the 1P extension icon in the toolbar
Expected: password entry via extension
Actual: full app opens 🤨

@1Password (Also, PS: the extension's toolbar icon should either be monochrome or have the option for monochrome)

4) Enter password in the full app
Expected: Extension sees I'm logged in and presents passwords for current website
Actual: It just sits and spins

@1Password This seems to be fixed by allowing 1Password 8 to stay resident in my menu bar, but I *don't* want that. I want the daemon/whatever running *but invisible*.

@1Password Since I [may?] have your attention, I downloaded an Intel build for my iMac Pro and was asked if I'd like to enable TouchID. 🤨
@1Password It’s little touches like this — asking for a hardware feature that is impossible — that 1Password never used to do.

I understand the business reasons for cross-platform development. But it is *very* clear to anyone who looks that this is not a Mac-first app.
@1Password For a team that used to be a shining example of how to make a “Mac-assed Mac app”, this is severely disappointing.

With some exceptions — search being a great one — I don’t give a shit if 1P Windows and 1P Mac are equivalent. I give a shit they’re good platform citizens.
@1Password If going cross-platform is the way forward for financial reasons, that’s fine, but I can’t say I understand given how much funding you’ve taken.

If it’s for business/speed reasons, that’s fine, I guess. But here again, there’s a not very measurable consequence to your actions.
@1Password Ultimately, you’ve got me by the short-and-curlies. My wife and I have come to absolutely rely on 1Password for Families.

However, if improvements aren’t made before 1P 8 goes “RTM”, you’ll certainly have lost an evangelist. Which makes me super duper sad. ☹️

Time will tell.

I propose a temperature scale that works like this. It should end all the bickering between °F and °C

100: you’re alive, but don’t want to be 🥵
80s: hot
70s: perfect
60s: nice
50s: brisk
40s: cold
30s: freezing
0: you’re alive, but don’t want to be 🥶
We can all agree that most places people will want to live will be right in the middle, but we’ll leave flexibility on either end for extremes.

Thus, any reasonable climate will flex from 0° ↔ 100°. Like percent.

However, < 0° and > 100° are possible, just not recommended.
Again, the new system is basically a percentage, which is lovely. It is built around the lived experience of a human being — not something silly like when water boils.

Every band of ~10 degrees is broadly analogous. But the difference between each degree is indeed noticeable.
