joinlaw -

you could have just asked parabola - parabola does not take
black-listing lightly - the answer would have been, that before
black-listing any program, the first order of business is to try
modifying the program to be FSDG-free - if that is not possible or is
too much trouble, then the secondary concern is to look for a suitable
replacement - only after no suitable replacement can be found would
that program be removed from parabola - so the mere fact that no
replacement exists can be quite confidently taken to imply that no
replacement exists

but, and this of course should not go without saying, that AFAIK
electron is nothing more than a stripped-down web browser, masquerading
as a desktop program; but a web browser that is constrained to visiting
only one single web page, a web page that deceptively looks like an
"app" - therefore *any* web browser is a suitable (indeed superior)

for example, jitsi-meet, riot, and most others are also 100% usable
in standard web browsers as demonstrated below - electron is much less
interesting or useful in reality than it appears on the surface
