It's amazing that you can't create better experiences in the web browser on iOS. We accept it now, but shouldn’t we be more frustrated? Like, about the fact that I'm on the same device/OS as I am in an app, but as I'm typing this (in mobile Safari), the autocorrect isn't consistent and typing feels sluggish.

I mean, I remember that dude ranting about this five years or so ago. And how Apple could make it way better but they don't because they want to enforce the app ecosystem, both because they have more control and more easily make money. Maybe there are technical reasons I don’t understand, but that makes a lot of sense. Sadly.
