Prerequisite Knowledge



Websites are optimized for ease of use, discoverability, and sharing – you’re one URL away with no upfront installs. However, these same sites are now also capable of earning new capabilities: offline, background tasks, notifications, storage, homescreen integration, and more. In effect, they progressively earn “app capabilities” as, and when, needed; they are progressive web apps.
