We fundamentally disagree. Based on the architecture of most framework-driven bloated single page apps today, the idea of separating concerns—much less progressive enhancement—isn’t even known about. This “gospel” had no disciples.

Replying to

The way I see it, the people encouraging progressive enhancement made almost zero impact. It wasn’t that the next generation misinterpreted the message; they never even got the message in the first place.

@FutureSyncConf Anonymous asks:

Great talk, Jeremy. Do you encounter push-back when using the term “Progressive Enhancement”?

It wouldn’t. I don’t understand what you’re asking. The issue is with the sites (the vast majority) that aren’t being added to the home screen—they’re the ones being hobbled by this 7 day deletion.

You won’t recommend me for a Product Manager job at Google?

My dreams lie in tatters before me.

How about a position on the AMP advisory committee? I’m hoping fascists like me aren’t barred.

Replying to

Never once did I claim that using AMP would result in fewer clicks for publishers.

It’s exactly because AMP is guaranteed to work this way—while nothing else will—that makes the situation unfair.

Publishers have no choice but to use AMP.

Replying to

But only for AMP pages.

No other framework gets this treatment.

No other web pages—no matter how fast—get this treatment.

Any wonder that developers are resentful of AMP?

Replying to

You are not alone:


During our testing “Install App” banners were the direct and sole cause of several abandonments of some of the world’s largest e-commerce websites.

Replying to

You’ll notice that I never once said that AMP is a ranking factor.

I said AMP is unfairly privileged in Google search results …because AMP is unfairly privileged in Google search results.

That’s a real shame for AMP-the-format.
