@stoyanstefanov Awesome job and pet peeve resolved, thank you!

Try slapping some `:root { color-scheme: dark light; }` on its CSS and with the present baseline design you’d get a decent enough dark mode for almost free.

@samthor Yeah, it’s definitely not an “uninstall as if it never happened” for the majority of all apps, and the same is true for most Windows apps.

via Echofon in reply to samthor

(My bug [hopefully obviously] is of course about deeper system-level integration for settings like notifications, not uninstall per se. PWAs on macOS can be uninstalled with Finder [among other ways], just like all native apps: support.apple.com/en-us/HT202235.)

rick_viscomi As of October, 10.6% of the web is using native image lazy loading, per @HTTPArchive. That number was 1.5% in July! 🤯

This appears to be _entirely_ driven by WordPress at 28.9% of WP pages, which makes up one third of the web.
