Progressive Web Apps, or PWAs, are the next big trend in browsing tech. Designed to give an app-like experience on the web, PWAs are something that Google has been pushing hard as well as Apple and Microsoft. All three companies, as well as Firefox are all planning to roll out support for the technology this year but Google appears to have the jump.

In this How To, I’ll show you which flags to enable to try out a PWA experience.
