08 Sep. 2017 Trending

One of the most common challenges businesses often face while trying to expand their customer reach is whether to stick to a responsive website or invest in launching and maintaining a feature-packed mobile app – or both. While many are still dealing with this dilemma, Google came up with the concept of Progressive Web Apps (PWA) at its I/O Conference in 2016. The term was coined by Frances Berriman (designer) and Alex Russell (Google Chrome engineer) in 2015.

Since its launch, PWAs have been the talk of the town but often misunderstood. A progressive web application is a combination of a responsive website and an app. It is built using the modern front end web development technologies – HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to provide web users an app-like experience.

As per Google, PWAs are fast, engaging and guaranteed to work irrespective of the user’s network conditions. They are highly responsive to all devices and functions just like an application downloaded from App Store or Google Play. To your awe, you do not have to spend time searching or downloading a PWA to use it. It makes use of modern browser features and can be indexed into a search engine. This makes it easily discoverable, linkable and upgradable.

Apart from Chrome, PWAs support various other browsers like FireFox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Samsung. Developers and mobile marketers are now relying on PWAs to grow customer reach by leveraging dot net development and bringing together the best of both web and mobile world.
