The default file permission on Linux is 777, which means everyone can read, write and execute the file. It's fine for most of the scenario, but it's another story when it comes to SSH private key. If you try to establish an SSH connection with a too open private key, WARNING: UNPROTECTED PRIVATE KEY FILE! will be shown.
Chromium is an open-source web browser, also the core of many popular browsers like Google Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi and even Microsoft Edge. There are people actually using Chromium in their day-to-day work, since it's the only way to experience the bleeding edge features of the core.

GNOME desktop has IBus integration by default. To set up the Zhuyin/Bopomofo (注音) input method is quite easy. On Arch-based Linux, there is an AUR package called ibus-chewing which is a Chinese Zhuyin/Bopomofo engine for IBus. The engine uses libchewing(酷音) under the hood. It's also a very popular input library in Taiwan, even on Windows systems.
A lot of extensions stopped working after GNOME 41. This is because the maintainer didn't mark their extensions as compatible with the newer version.

PC/SC (Personal Computer/Smart Card) is not implemented by default on Arch-based Linux. To use your USB chip/smart card reader, we'll need some essential packages (drivers, tools, etc.) from the official repositories.
Debian/Ubuntu-based Linux distros use .deb file to distribute and install packages, but Arch-based Linux doesn't have that kind of feature built-in. With tools like debtap, we'll be able to convert a .deb file into an Arch Linux package with PKGBUILD then install the package with pacman.
By default, Show all applications is bound to Super+A on the GNOME desktop. And cannot be changed to Super L or Super R since it conflicts with Overview. To force GNOME to open the applications menu with Super, there is an extension called Show Applications Instead Of Workspaces.

Mozilla Firefox is the default web browser for many Linux distros since it's fully open source, there are also several official and Arch user packages for different versions of Firefox for Arch-based Linux.

Microsoft Edge is growing fast since it embraced the power of Chromium. According to some online data, it has become the 3rd most popular browser.
