Progressive Web Apps

Benefits of Progressive Web Apps

  • Progressive – Work for every user, regardless of browser choice, because they are built with progressive enhancement as a core tenet.

  • Responsive – Fit any form factor, desktop, mobile, tablet, or whatever is next.

  • Connectivity independent – Enhanced with service workers to work offline or on low quality networks.

  • App-like – Use the app-shell model to provide app-style navigation and interactions.

  • Fresh – Always up-to-date thanks to the service worker update process.

  • Safe – Served via HTTPS to prevent snooping and ensure content has not been tampered with.

  • Discoverable – Are identifiable as “applications” thanks to W3C manifests and service worker registration scope allowing search engines to find them.

  • Re-engageable – Make re-engagement easy through features like push notifications.

  • Installable – Allow users to “keep” apps they find most useful on their home screen without the hassle of an app store.

  • Linkable – Easily share via URL and not require complex installation.
