It’s 2016 and we still are talking about native vs web. Shouldn’t this debate be settled by now? Shouldn’t the web have won by now?

The good news is that we now have a lot of great things to finally make a viable web app compete with native ones in most of these aspects. With the concept of Progressive Web Apps, the Web is giving us the capability to do more. We’ll see what exactly we could do with Progressive Web apps to build the future of the web. Along the way, we’ll see what expectations the Web might have from us, and whether we could measure up to them.
