      Many users have appimages on their system, useful but need some management, some do not cope well with that,
      especially with regard to updating.

      Recent find is called Application manager, a distro agnostic tool for finding, installing and updating Appimages
      and some equivalent universal packages like directly downloaded firefox.

      May be a good optional package for antiX users.

      A distro Tube review video is available, link below. Better than me boring readers with long text.

          This is an interesting idea indeed; thank you @Xunzi_23 for sharing it with us.

          At the present time I do use AppImages in a few places; predominantly to pick up either Ungoogled Chromium or Librewolf in a convenient format AND get them promptly after their release. With Librewolf I’ve only needed to do that once; with Ungoogled Chromium I choose to use AppImage format more frequently rather than build the image myself or hunt around for a current binary; one page has both and I’ve trusted the source (at least recently) for some decent AppImage instances of Ungoogled Chromium; I believe it was you, @Xunzi_23, who pointed me to a page where I can find verified copies of software.
