Progressive Web App
These are basically web apps or web sites that look like mobile apps, especially when it comes to functionality and design. It is a marriage of web browser and native mobile app features to give the user an app-like experience, which accounts for its growing popularity. The PWA was proposed by Google a few years ago and has several benefits. Some of which are instant loading, push notification and increased conversions, and the ability to add the PWA app to the user's home screen.
