Just updated my blog post on Apple killing Offline Web Apps with questions after they silently updated their blog post (thanks for the heads up @xerz).

I’m now confused and wondering if they thought this out at all.

I’ve also added a link to @soapdog’s blog post on the same subject.

@aral @xerz

A very important point for me is that PWAs are still PWAs regardless if they are installed to the home screen or not. I use many PWAs without actually adding them to my homescreen because I like keeping it clean. I don't want them wiped out like this either.

Thanks for the link Aral, I wish more people were posting about this as well. Unfortunately the HN thread about my post is a bit depressing, people seem to think it is all ok.

@aral Nice move! Web is slow and bloated and full of trackers and rigid usage for greedy and evil corporate

@EdwardTorvalds This is not going to kill the centralised web. It’s going to kill the possibility of a private web and a bridge from the web to p2p. So not nice move.
