What is Magento 2 Progressive Web App
PWA stands for Progressive Web App; which is an application that uses a whole host of modern coding technologies and design techniques that provide a more streamlined, faster and more engaging user experience.
With PWA technology, a Magento 2 store responds faster on any device, is more secure and far more responsive than older methods, making this far more cross-browser compatible and device agnostic.
A PWA is also able to act in an’ off-line’ way to seem more like a native app on a mobile rather than seeking data from a remote hosted website. There are some core features that define how a PWA and Magento 2 aid in making your web store provides a more engaging user experience.
