    It's only "critical" in the sense that Chrome 72 broke support for U2F, so if you updated your browser, your Ledger, Bitbox, Trezor, Secalot etc. would timeout incorrectly and not work with a few interfaces like XRP Toolkit and MyCrypto. As the new browser and old firmware was no longer compatible after Google's update. That's it.

    This is ridiculous... Why don't you just generate a 24 word seed and derive an XRP account/secret "to deposit your XRP" manually. Why on earth would you buy a Ledger Nano S just for deriving an account and then destroy the device?
    If you take a look at this infographic: https://developers.ripple.com/set-up-secure-signing.html#use-a-dedicated-signing-device
    You'll see that hardware wallets are meant to be used, not just collect dust. They are literally the only way to achieve trustless transaction signing, without having to trust a computer or phone.
    Sooner rather than later, you'll e.g. be able to set trust lines (participate in airdrops) and trade on the DEX using your Ledger device.
    Like everything else with embedded software, including your home router, its firmware should be updated regularly. For hardware wallets, this is to protect against newly discovered vulnerabilities requiring physical access to the device and specialized lab equipment to exploit. Yet, Ledger always patches them, despite their incredibly low probability of affecting anyone.
    Compared to a software wallet, if your computer or phone with a much larger attack surface is compromised, any running software wallet would be compromised too. Your hardware wallet remains secure, even when connected to a compromised computer or interface. That's part of their security model and the only reason to use one in the first place.

    Which is another way of saying you might as well just have a paper wallet stored at a bank.

    I'd argue that the lack of hardware wallet support is a major contributor to the slow XRPL DEX adoption. Now that there's U2F/WebUSB and soon Bluetooth support in the major browsers, users can use DEX interfaces in a plug n' play fashion without installing anything (and without trusting the DEX interface with their secret).
    Ethereum users have had Mycrypto.com and MyEtherWallet.com (millions of users) with proper hardware wallet support for a long time. Binance DEX is executing on something similar for their native chain, working with hardware wallet maker Ledger from day one, enabling user-controlled hardware wallets interoperable with their non-custody, feature-rich DEX interface.
    Don't you think Ripple and the likes of Coil/Kava/Strata Labs/(...) would benefit from hardware wallet multisigning and escrow support? Don't you think it would enable a much better usability/security tradeoff for DEX interfaces with hardware wallet support for order transactions?

    Bob, you're a star! This confirmed my hypothesis that the brightest at Ripple are aware of this issue and that PolySign is related to the problem of low XRP hardware wallet support.
    I'm doing what I can to change this, starting with implementing full XRP support together with Secalot (open-source software and hardware) and then going for Ledger/Trezor/others.
    It's 2019, we should be able to multisign using multiple hardware wallets, sign escrows, trust lines and IOU payments by now... 
    Do you have any additional thoughts on XRP hardware wallet support?
