Strongly disagree with Lighthouse wanting “Manifest’s display property set to standalone/fullscreen to allow launching without address bar.”

@adactio why? I am of the opposite opinion if the experience is being launched from the homescreen.

@adactio I think it’s good,cos it’s v unclear to me what the obvious thing to do is on entering a URL in the URL bar in an icon-launched PWA

Stuart Langridge

@adactio and what launching a website from an icon should do on desktop if that icon wants a URL bar. It should be a tab? But that’s weird.

Jeremy Keith

@Paul_Kinlan I want people to be able to copy URLs. I want people to be able to hack URLs. I’m not ashamed of my URLs …I’m downright proud.

Paul Kinlan

@adactio (exploring my thoughts…) if the user installs it as an “app” would they expect it look and feel like an app would? i.e no address

Jeremy Keith

@Paul_Kinlan I think it’s a bit infantilizing to assume people will be confused and should therefore be disempowered. I like to give choice.

Jeremy Keith

@Paul_Kinlan The lack of URLs is a bug in native (just like the lack of pinch/zoom). Reproducing those bugs on the web makes no sense to me.

Jeremy Keith

@Paul_Kinlan That’s shocking. Absolutely shocking. (It’s also not true, at least in the versions of Chrome on Android I tested with).

@adactio can you file a bug (if you haven’t already) and we can discuss it there? We are more than happy to evolve Lighthouse :)

@adactio Surely, if adding a web app to home screen this is fine? Depends on the use case of site. Web app == ok, normal site == not ok.

Dafydd Thomas

@adactio Difficult, I agree. I guess: Trello/Gmail/Messenger == web app. Wiki, Twitter, my person site == website.
