1 of 5 Points, it's possible to run the web browser on a specific website from the terminal. The window must be manually aligned using xdotool. The keyboard doesn't work. The scrolling is smooth and youtube works as long as you use only touch gestures.

Tips and Tricks

Launch chromium like this without GPU support:

$ chromium --disable-gpu https://youtube.com

Flatpak with Wayland Support:

#Currently Broken, this is for when mobians flatpak version supports expose-pids flag.

$ flatpak install flathub org.chromium.Chromium
$ flatpak override --nosocket=x11 org.chromium.Chromium #This step is optional, making sure we only start with wayland
$ flatpak run org.chromium.Chromium --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland

Those arguments need to be added to the Chromium .desktop file to always start with wayland.
