“Is there a cold war between Android and Chrome because of PWAs?”
I don’t know if the Cold War angle is true but it’s obvious from the post that Microsoft has the opportunity to become _better_ at PWAs than Google. Chromium-based PWAs, in the Windows Store, that can be progressively enhanced to use native APIs a la Electron but without Electron's downsides.
Still don't agree with MS's decision but it isn't hard to see the appeal. Not sure they can pull it off, tho
