Volto: Clearly indicate offline functionality

In volto, when the client loses internet connection. An error message is shown (at least in debug mode). Good design principles dictate that you should clearly indicate offline functionality when network connection lose is detected.

Does Volto have any plans to implement clear indication of offline state in the UI. Or we should go ahead and implement this using third party libraries like react-detect-offline (react-detect-offline - npm)

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts?

I'd love to see this feature in Volto, though I'm pretty sure this path leads to the "ok, now we need offline functionality".

I think just showing 'Offline' dialog or error page when the connection is lost is good enough for starters.
