Progressive Web Apps | Web Worker | SSR
A progressive web application (PWA) is a type of web application that combines the features of a traditional web application with those of a native mobile application. It is designed to work seamlessly on any device, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
One of the main features of a PWA is its ability to work offline. This means that users can access the app even without an Internet connection, as the app can store data locally on their device. This can be especially useful for users in areas with limited or unreliable Internet connection.
Another important feature of a PWA is its ability to be installed on the home screen of a device, just like a native mobile app. This allows users to easily access the app and receive push notifications even when the app is not open in the browser.
PWAs can be used for a variety of purposes, including online shopping, social networking, reading news, and more. They provide a convenient and user-friendly way for users to access and interact with web-based content and services on their devices.
