OMG chrome finally has CSS hyphens! They've been available in Firefox and Safari since 2011, and in IE since 2012. Better late than never, I guess!Wait, did you say "on Android and Mac"? It's not even on all platforms? 🙁

Doesn't the macOS share menu also benefit from this? Mac has a native share option too that Chrome has yet to implement.support.apple.com/kb/PH25749?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
