Hoppscotch is a progressive web app rather than an OS based standalone app. So you can test your APIs directly from your browser window without switching to another application. And can be used on your PC, tablet or even from your smartphone. And the resource consumption is 10x less when compared to a standalone app.

The best part is that whole project and ecosystem is open sourced.

The app itself is a client-side application. Nothing ever leave from your browser whatsoever.
