"Please add a feature to check the user's internet connection before the application starts."
-- THIS IS A GOD DAMN WEB APPLICATION, YOU DUMB MORONS! Maybe I should add a feature next that checks for the user's computer being turned on or what? How about making sure the application isn't run when the power is out?!
Jesus fuck.

    It depends. Is your application first fully loaded and only then loaded in browser? If yes, this means that technically, you need to be able to handle that case. Discord and Telegram do, too.

    @filthyranter It's a kind of videochat. Basically customers load the page, register and then the company using it can support them. There is no way we need such a check.
