    WebAssembly formalization needs to happen before PWAs completely take off. There are sites other than Twitter (WashingtonPost's website is considered a PWA), but none of them are very complex. The reason we don't see complex stuff is because javascript execution just isn't that fast compared to compiled code. Like at least 20 times faster.

    This is especially important on mobile devices for obvious reasons.


    Once that gets finalized and actually built into browsers I'd imagine we'll see rapid adoption of useful PWA's.

    Edit - It looks like Safari is the only major browser that doesn't support it yet. Which makes sense, since Apple won't want to kill off their app store.

    Good rant on ads. Pay for premium. Value for value.

    If you like Tomb Raider, you should get the new Tomb Raider game on PC. It really stresses the PC but in very good ways, and is DirectX 12 Optimised.
