PWAs enjoy a few advantages today. They're zero-install (users can choose to keep them, but installing them is something you opt to do after you're using them). They start pretty instantly and don't require a large binary commitment to start using them. You can use PWAs without needing to engage with a App Store. You just directly go to the experience. You can update them on the go. You just use the PWA and get the latest version.

Yeah, that's what I love about them. I used Twitter's PWA a lot and I did not miss the official app at all.

We've seen progress made in mobile Safari over the last year. Safari now supports Service Workers and has some Web App manifest support.

I remember that, that was a really good news.

I'm hopeful they'll catch up.

Crossing fingers! A full support would be a game changer for PWAs. Also hope things like Web USB get more love by browsers.

Browsers developers have a lot on their plates :)
