The PWA Revolution is Off to a Slow Start. Why? (Premium)


I had hoped that 2018 would be the year of the Progressive Web App (PWA). It could still happen, but the revolution is unfolding in slow motion, at least so far.

Granted, I am the patron saint of PWAs. And despite a reputation for being negative, I'm really a pie-eyed optimist when it comes to how technology can positively impact our lives. And PWAs fall into a nice bucket for me, as they represent a holy grail, of sorts, of right time/right technology. And this is true for both developers and users. It's a win-win.
