When I download Cryptomator for macOS, you display this sentence:
“We recommend installing FUSE for macOS. FUSE is optional but offers better integration into macOS.”
But when Fuse is optional, how exactly is it better integrated into macOS? Let me ask different: What are the disadvantages of not using Fuse?

When not using fuse, your virtual file system will be provided by WebDAV.
WebDAV is old, poorly maintenances on every OS (just my opinion) and there are several reports here that on M1 chip systems it’s unstable.
Sidenote: with the upcoming version 1.7 (beta 2 is out, feel free to join the test) FUSE-T is supported.

Support for FUSE-T (macOS FUSE implementation without kext)
macFUSE relies on a kext and is very often flaky (at least for me). Kexts are also set to be deprecated on macOS soon.
FUSE-T is a new FUSE implementation that doesn't rely on a kext: https://www.fuse-t.org/
Cryptomator doesn't seem to work with it however - with FUSE-T installed on my system, the only option available in Preferences -> Virtual Drive is WebDAV.
Any chance you could support FUSE-T on macOS?
