Posted By : Anmol Kalra | 29-Oct-2021

PROGRESSIVE WEB APPLICATION (PWA) is the most advanced trend in the web development industry. They are growing popular daily as they make it effortless to build web applications with HTML, JAVASCRIPT, and CSS and provide web-based applications a native experience.


Native app store applications are capable of doing things like work offline, send push notifications, load on the home screen, and so on. Mobile Web Applications accessed in a mobile browser, by comparison, historically are far behind those things. Progressive Web Applications bring features we expect from native apps to the mobile browser experience that uses standards-based technologies and runs in a secure container accessible to anyone on the web.

When an application introduced from an application store is launched clients anticipate that it should open, whether or not they're connected to the internet. Progressive Web Apps ought to be the same.

At the very least, a straightforward disconnected page that tells the client the application isn't accessible without an organization association ought to be served. Then, at that point, consider making the experience a stride further by giving some usefulness that bodes well while disconnected.
