Some hybrid web apps run node processes and too many node processes running at once takes too many resources.

Building a native application will most likely be more performant than hybrid app.

If engineers can port iPad app to MacOS this is a better option than building a hybrid app for MacOS (when developer resources are available to do so) IMHO.

It is not possible for a PWA to start a node process. Maybe you are confusing them with electron apps?
