Thanks for these two articles.

You touched on something in the first article, but missed it in this one, where I think it belonged, and that is handling communication latency.

This occurs where your user is at the back-end of a satellite connection (e.g. they’re in a remote area and the mobile network is running over a satellite hop or two).

Satellite will often add around a second to roundtrip times. This breaks very ‘chatty’ apps.

Having a service worker helps some of the user experience, but it’s really only introducing a layer of buffering. If the service worker itself is poorly designed the problem still remains.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
