I wonder what catalyst could spark progressive web apps becoming the default. Maybe some current android manufacturer wanting to escape google will make make a mobile OS where the "app store" is really just a browser built entirely around PWAs. I wonder if you could fork an existing android browser and do this- like a browser fork presented as f-droid but for PWAs
Strangely enough- desktop might be an even better target for this. Google themselves would be crazy not to do it, especially since the apple app store has been such a failure for so long. Chrome PWAs on mac are stellar with the exception of a few stray bugs. Shame google shot themselves in the foot by inexplicably eliminating the insane real estate they had with the chrome app store formerly living on the app dock on macOS
