Apple just killed Offline Web Apps while purporting to protect your privacy

Aral Balkan notes that Apple just killed Progressive Web Apps and explains why that’s such a bad thing. This sort of thing is why — despite Google’s often-problematic behaviour — I choose to stick with Android: at the end of the day my Android phone respects me and my decisions (well, most of the time anyway). Apple fundamentally doesn’t respect its users: it seeks to provide them with what Apple thinks is a great experience, whether they want something else or not.

Update: Andre Alves Garzia explains how this makes the private apps he had been building impossible. Maybe if enough developers complain Apple will reconsider?
