Addy Osmani explains why progressive web apps (PWAs) are becoming the new normal for fast, reengaging mobile web experiences for large brands such as Twitter, Lyft, and Forbes. Addy also explores how PWA support has massively improved in modern frameworks like React, Preact, Polymer, and Vue, lowering the barriers for developers and businesses to explore them.
