The Future of web browsing
With PWA thrown into the equation, a company can transform its current website into a PWA. This eliminates the need to develop for other platforms as users can access it on any device without having to install/download the app onto their device. The user can also access this PWA while being offline and continue activity on the website without abandoning it due to restricted internet access. By transitioning its website into a PWA, the company has saved time and reduced costs significantly, accessed and engaged more users.

Progressive Web Apps is no exception – it is a new generation of web apps that takes advantage of latest web technologies and combines best practices. It allows easy and consistent browsing experience that is reliable on all devices.
Looks and feels like an app. Apps are becoming the preferred method of browsing compared to browsers. PWAs provide a more agreeable experience for your users by combining performance, look and feel of an app while keeping advantages of a website at the same time. In other words your website will behave like a native app but will be regarded far superior to that of your standard website. PWA is fast and has comprehensive abilities.
Faster installing. Regular mobile apps require long and complicated installing processes, but PWA eliminates this and improves your user experience. A user just has to visit a website link, without going to App Store or Google Play. Your PWA, once downloaded can be accessed via an icon.
Can operate offline or in unreliable network areas. PWAs overcome the hurdle of needing to be online to access a website, which is a crucial turning point not just for you but for the majority of businesses. Your PWA will now enable consumers to stay on your website instead of abandoning it when the internet drops. It will also allow your users already browsing your website at the airport terminal to stay on your website even when they are on a plane and their device is in flight mode.
Push notifications. This will allow your business to take advantage of content advertising. How does it work? Unlike regular notifications such as email newsletters, blog entries or social network posts, progressive web applications send notifications directly to the mobile device. It has shown that almost 60% of consumers allow the PWA to send them notifications, allowing a high probability of attracting the consumer’s attention (compared to email newsletters etc).
