Windows 10 users: Chrome 70 means you don’t need Edge, Microsoft Store to run PWAs – TechRepublic

 

Google’s Chrome 70 was released on Tuesday and with it comes support for desktop progressive web apps (PWAs) on Windows 10 that look and behave like normal desktop apps.

Websites like Twitter and Spotify that support PWAs can now launch on Windows 10 without the usual address bar, tabs, and navigation buttons, offering a more native app experience.

Chrome has supported desktop PWAs since Chrome 67 on Chrome OS, but Chrome 70’s support for Windows 10 significantly expands the potential use of PWAs given that Chrome is far more widely used on Windows than Microsoft Edge.
