I am overwhelmed with information right now. Day one of Google I/O 2017 had so much in the store about mobile web and especially on Progressive Web Apps, that Google IO 2017 was truly worth the wait. The amazing new capabilities, clearly show that web is the future. Believe it or not, 5 Billion devices are connected to the web. Chrome alone runs 2 billion devices for phone, tab, and laptop!
PWA could be described as a mix of a mobile app and a web page, pulling the best elements of both and creating a cool new user experience. It makes use of some of the modern web capabilities to deliver an app like experience to its users. PWAs have to meet certain requirements that make them work like an app. With the additional benefit of its searchability via URLs and search engine; PWA has an upper hand compared to Apps.
