If you are using Android or Chrome, you might have already come across a Progressive Web Apps. These use relatively fresh new web technologies to make websites work better offline or with low-internet connections, which often mimics as native apps.
Progressive Web Apps Into Windows Apps
Microsoft wants to get into the action to Windows 10 with a new version of Microsoft Edge that will support the necessary web technologies. Unlike Electron apps, PWAs can’t include native OS-dependent code. They are still just websites with better caching, notifications and background functionality.

However, a lot of Electrons apps are simply a website wrapped in an OS-native launcher and it is possible that many of these could switch over to PWAs. Well, Microsoft will soon start adding high-quality PWAs to the Microsoft Store and developers can also submit their PWA for consideration.
