We all have used Apps related to food, online purchases, technology advances, banking, games, music, messaging, etc. Most of the Apps require a continuous, and fast internet connection to work seamlessly, and for the all the features to work well without buffering. The conditions required to obtain excellent results are ideal, and the conditions like uninterrupted internet access, network availability at all times, cannot be achieved at all times due to factors like areas where there is no mobile station, or loss in internet access, server problems from the App provider side.The need to find an alternative solution for using Apps which needs internet connection without fail to work, gave birth to the concept of “Progressive Web Pages.”
Progressive websites are websites which work similar to an App which would require internet connection but in the case of progressive websites, no internet connection would be required. The user experience in an offline working webpage is quite amazing. In coming years there will be tough competition for all applications which work with internet access. There will be no time wasted as there will be no buffering time. The pages on the website will be instantaneously loaded. The most commendable update or an advantage can be the working condition of the Apps without any network availability. Many online sellers will adopt this as it will be the leading trend in online marketing.
