Update for Customers Using PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build

Since [PhoneGap]’s beginning in 2008, the market has evolved and Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) now bring the power of native apps to web applications. PWAs are increasingly bridging the gap between web and native mobile apps through capabilities such as offline support, push notifications, home-screen icons and full-screen view control without the need for containers.

I talk a lot about POSSE these days, but it's mainly about content, not applications. For them, it is often difficult to host a solution yourself, but relying on a third-party solution in the cloud also raises many concerns, to which the Ink & Switch team is trying to find a solution:

Is there a cold war between Android and Chrome because of PWAs?

I think there is a silent war between Android and Chrome, and the first one seems to be ahead. PWAs on Android could have a much better experience, and it could have more supporters if the Android team could push this a little further, letting some game changer abilities get into the platform.

How much data should my Service Worker put upfront in the offline cache?

I love when Web site/apps work even when I'm offline. I've made my SVG game esviji work offline thanks to appcache just after attending Jake Archibald conference about why Application Cache is a Douchebag during the 2012 edition of the Paris Web conference. Fortunately, we have now Service Workers (in some browsers), which gives us more control over this kind of cache for offline browsing. But as Uncle Ben says, “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility”.
