"Progressive Web-First Apps" by Dion Almaer medium.com/ben-and-dion/progre

The business case for PWAs is interesting. They seem especially popular in emerging markets, where I presume users are more data-sensitive and tend to use budget phones.

@nolan one advantage I haven't heard being mentioned much yet about PWAs is how they give the user a lot more control over what the app can do, esp. related to privacy. I have a very capable phone, but if there's a PWA, I don't download the native app. I use the Brave browser so I can avoid spyware/adware and that's a big relief. Also, the web platform is the only one large enough that is not under control of a single entity, so I like to boost its ranks whenever possible.
