10 points to @owa and everyone who correctly identified Apple's 💩 about breaking PWAs in the EU. -1,000,000 points to Apple for genuinely breaking the UX of many applications for a whole generation of developers

A question for front-end developers:
I still often hear folks say that Web Components look nice but they just aren't mature enough to rely on in cases where they'd reach for React, etc. My impression is the support, patterns, and tools surrounding Web Components are now quite good, so I'm curious to hear which aspects are still not there, or simply are just not clicking yet for people. Are you waiting on specific features? Bigger community? Framework integrations? Boss approval? Training? Thx!

Solar panel friends! I am thinking of joining you. What one or two tips do I need to know during the quoting phase? Thanks! (boosts appreciated!)
Reading an old favorite of mine to my 6-yr-old called Redwall (Brian Jacques). I’m so impressed at both his engagement in the story and also comprehension. It’s a beautifully written story but uses a lot of large words and dense descriptions. There are no pictures in the book save one small map at the beginning and the type is impossibly small, but my curious little guy is asking all kinds of insightful questions and is loving the drama!
Github goes down at precisely the time I want to publish my code. It's like it stares me in the eye and says "Not Today friend! Not today!"
This is the ford over the river Loddon near where I live. You can't see the depth marker that this warning sign describes because it too is underwater

Doing my best to write a Christmas-themed web development quiz. I need some more ideas - we can only use Intl.DateTimeFormat to get Santa's timezone so many times
Does anyone have research on performance impacts of shadow-root nesting within custom elements? Like, is more than 3 levels of nesting bad for you?
