re: Is there any way to detect if a user "can go back" in PWAs (desktop PWA most specifically) VIEW POST


There's a proposal to add field to the Web Manifest to hint that navigation should be shown that would work across devices. Here's a better thread. In the meantime, there is a CSS media query that you could use to determine when to show your navigation.


I might be mistaken, but it seems like minimal-ui mode doesn't work on the desktop. It looks like standalone no matter which I use.
