I'm really excited about the NetInfo API but haven't found too many uses for it, in production work. What's the coolest use case you've seen for the NetInfo API?

 

I haven't seen alot of use of it in production either (I should probably look in the HTTPArchive for that...)

However, I see a great possibility for images or video - if the browser is telling you the average download speed - you can customize the content for the network your customers are on.

In the news the last week is that mobile Chrome users with data saver mode on - if the effective connection is 2G - the browser will no longer download JS. Tim Kadlec has a good write up on that: timkadlec.com/remembers/2018-09-06...
