I hate when I see a #webdev post and it links to web.dev. Demos should link to MDN, which is the industry standard documentation site that uses a browser agnostic view of standards. Web.dev documents Chromium-specific APIs as if they're part of the web, with no indication of that. If you're a web developer writing a blog post, link to the independent documentation, not the Google-owned site.

Bookmarked: Web platform's hidden gems (series)

The web has certainly grown a lot over the last half a decade and continues to grow at an enormous pace. The highlight of this explosive growth is the continuous addition of feature-rich APIs that enables developers to create much more interactive and efficient web applications. Enhancements such as GPU accelerated graphics/computation, lower-level APIs that provide better control and hardware access not only allow developers to cater to a wider spectrum of users but also to support various other platforms and use cases. This makes the web portable and extensible in the true sense. Even though these specifications are in very early stages at the moment, they seem to be really promising and tend to provide an idea on how web development in the coming years would look like. Looking beyond the JavaScript framework landscape, there are a lot of nifty features that the web platform offers natively and it's important for developers to know about these specifications and understand the possibilities that the native web has to offer!

Amazon and Microsoft releasing their game streaming services on ios as PWAs is a big step forward. If they can make those work well, maybe other developers will take it as a sign that they don't have to deal with Apples onerous rules either.
