By now you must have heard this buzz word called “ Progressive Web App ”. Let me give you a simple definition about PWAs.
Progressive Web Apps are Web Apps which combines the best features of Web and Native Apps. It is progressive because it is constantly progressing.
Why Progressive Web Apps?
Now let’s talk about the “WHY”. Why !
Microsoft is supporting Google’s Progressive Web Apps platform and that’s great news for everyone.
Microsoft recently announced that Progressive Web Apps (PWA) will soon be supported by the Microsoft Edge web browser. Moreover, a few apps hitting the Windows Store — like Slack and Trello — are now mixing PWA with Electron and elements of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).
I hope this has helped to get a good understanding about Progressive Web Apps, but if not, please leave a comment or tweet me.
