State of electron support on playwright?

Hi! I'd like to know what's the state of Playwright's support for Electron is - for example, is it stable? are there any major caveats?

The Electron page in the docs (https://playwright.dev/docs/api/class-electron/) seems to be pretty humble, but if I understand correctly Visual Studio Code uses it for testing, and I'd assume such an app would require a well-established tool (at least, if testing is indeed done on the desktop app and not a web version).

I'm completely new to this discord server as well as Playwright, so I'm sorry if this question is irrelevant/not in the right spot.

Is it stable? By definition its experimental. Is it usable? Absolutely, a lot of big clients out there us it, like VSCode etc. We did not introduce any breaking changes in the past and will continue to support it in the future.

Ok, sounds fair. Thanks a bunch!
