Over the years, web development has been changed dramatically. There used to be days when a single click caused static web pages to refresh and reload. Then came AJAX which allowed websites to send and retrieve data from a server asynchronously, eliminating the need to reload the entire page to change the content. Now, web app developers use modern technology which allows users to immediately start using it on their phone, eliminating the unnecessary downloading and installation stages from an app store.
The entire credit for the advanced experiences that a PWA can offer goes to a service worker (a script that the browser runs in the background, separated from a web page). The service workers enable reliable and intelligent caching, background content updating, push notifications and the most attractive offline functionality to prior visited sites. That means, after the first visit to a website, the site and app will be reliably fast even on slow networks.
