I recently started using webapps and it’s a good experience. Which websites have good webapps? What do you guys use/ recommend?

    Is this the “install” option from the settings drop down in Firefox Mobile? I accidentally pressed the button for Kbin the other day, didn’t go through with it but it was interesting.

    I haven’t used these since… Man, the iPod 3G?

    Personally, my Internet usage these days is mostly just the fediverse and what I find through them. I’d be interested if there were any particularly good ones though.

    I guess it could be useful for game information websites, but I’d want to avoid the awful conglomerate one for that, and I tend to just use the information as a text search and it pops up. I feel like if I’m directly on the site I never find what I need as quickly, so maybe not.

    Maybe some of the music websites I’ve come across would be good.

    I was under the impression that ALL websites are basically a kind of webapp. Some (like Lazada) are what you’d call ‘Progressive Web Applications’.

    I use Webapp-Manager on Linux, which will set up a shortcut to launch any website/url as a Webapp… at the time of creation, you can choose Firefox or some other browser as the backend (works well for sites that dont work in Firefox).

    So for me, the BBC Radio website is a webapp, Overseerr and Sonarr are webapps too.

    Samsung Internet (currently using MBIN web app from it).

    its also the best browser imo… ad/tracker blocking wise aswell as layout customization and dark mode forcing…
