re: Safari now supports Service Workers: What this means (to me at least) VIEW POST


Can you provide some quick insight as to why App Shell Architecture, ( First time I heard about this ) and Services worker provides "mean that much of the HTML (and other assets, of course) can stay with you on your browser so your next visit is much faster to show you some layout and sends fewer bytes over the wire. "

How is that different from good old Browser Caching?


Service workers can act as a pretty smart programmed reverse proxy. A subset of what you can do with this is caching, but you have a lot more explicit control over this functionality. This post has a lot of great responses to help.
