Using Plex as an example, this means that you can ‘install’ Plex from https://app.plex.tv/desktop#!/.

First, install epiphany and enable hardware acceleration.

paru -S epiphany gstreamer
gsettings set org.gnome.Epiphany.web:/ hardware-acceleration-policy 'always'

Open epiphany and go to https://app.plex.tv/desktop#!/.
