Apple just killed Offline Web Apps while purporting to protect your privacy: why that’s A Bad Thing and why you should care
@aral I've already seen this on twitter. No, they are not. Nothing is ever deleted for web apps you've added to your home screen. The article was updated to reflect that as well. So, false alarm.
@grishka Ah, cool, I’ll just add all my web apps to my Mac’s home screen then. Can you remind me how to do that again?
Also, what about web apps you don’t add to your home screen?
This destroys offline web apps. So not a false alarm.
@grishka How is that in any way relevant? If your web app doesn’t work in Safari, it’s broken. No one who tries it in Safari only to find their data is deleted after seven days is going to say, oh, Safari sucks. They’re just not going to use your app. Especially given that you’re starting from a disadvantage as a non-native app to begin with.
