It's very bad that they reimplemented a new PGP stack in JS when there
is a multi-stakeholder community effort with OpenPGP.js www.openpgpjs.org

Look their comments about it:

"Not a stupid question at all. We actually considered this option, but
OpenPGP.js looked pretty bad back then.
Security-wise the library wasn't in good shape.
One of our cryptographers would "classify [OpenPGP.js] as trash.
It has been audited recently, but the result doesn't look very good either"

I think that Google should make a turn-back and switch to using
OpenPGP.js, that's a modular, secure, widely compatible and performant
PGP stack library in javascript, with heavy improvements done in the
last 9 months, thanks to multiple developers working on it for different
projects.

I reported such issue here:
