Why use Chrome Extensions for Hardware Wallets?

by supra411   Last Updated October 18, 2019 21:28 PM

Is there any way for a remote webserver to connect to a USB device using serial? If so, why did major hardware wallets use a Chrome Extension as opposed to a backend server for connection? Ledger used to do it and Trezor still does it to connect hardware wallets to their own websites.

Thanks!
