Experience Progressive Web Apps (PWA)

Progressive Web Apps narrow the gap between the user experience in web-based and native applications. They are available in Safari on macOS and iOS, in Chrome/Edge on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS. Firefox seems to have deprecated the support recently (maybe because of their cost savings).

They are cross-platform, linkable, 1-click installable, responsive and can be made to work with poor or no connectivity.

Experience them yourself with those examples:

Windows / macOS

With one click PWAs can be installed on the local operating system. Just clock on the little “+” symbol in your browser URL field:

Afterwards the app shows up in your Windows start menu / Mac Launcher and can be started from there:

Additionally it can be uninstalled like any other app.


On iOS and Android you need to use the “Add to Home Screen option from the browsers pull-down menu.
