A while back the manifest.json
orientation property was changed from
any. This, however, makes Chrome for Android ignore the native Android orientation lock, which makes it
quite difficult basically impossible to read posts with your phone sideways. In fact, the Chrome docs even say:
Use this selectively. Users prefer selecting the orientation.
This makes me think
any isn’t really the default. Could the property
orientation simply be omitted? The Web App of dev.to for example, works fine for me and doesn’t have it set in its manifest.
