What a completely awesome feature that was added... that is completely useless in the state it is in!
If I select NONE I would expect no network connection is available and all network calls would fail. As it is now, setting to "NONE" doesn't do anything!
What a waste of time.
From the documentation:
Simulate Network Connection Type
In the simulator, you can set the current network connection type for the device.
Setting the network connection type in the simulator changes the
connection.type property for the Apache Cordova
Connectionobject but does not affect the network connectivity. For example, when you select None, the network connection is not disabled and you can still make network requests in the simulator.
