This is one area where PWAs still beat the pants off of native apps: the download size. Pinafore is 0.5MB for the whole app. Really! You go to pinafore.social, and it downloads the whole damn thing in the background.

For comparison:

Android:
- Tusky: 7.4M
- Yuito: 17.5M
- Subway Tooter: 18M
- Fedilab: 27M

iOS:
- Amaroq: 17.8M
- Mast: 19.3M
- Toot! 21.2M
- Tootle: 23.8M
- Mercury: 46.7M

(Found on play.google.com/store/apps/ and the App Store on an iPhone.)

Steam Sale today!

Some games I can wholeheartedly recommend:

Control
Horizon Zero Dawn
The entire Life Is Strange franchise (a bit heavy in the current climate though)
DOOM and DOOM Eternal
Wolfenstein II: The New Colussus (TNO is okay)

Having a hard time finding intermediate tutorials for rust. Most of them are super beginner (which is great!) but then they jump into advanced, or at least into the form of people already familiar with C/C++. Coming from web development and being used to a crazy amount of tutorials this feels harder. Protips and advise welcomed!
