Service Worker

A service worker should be registered in order to enable the typical features of a PWA.


Why register a service worker?

In order to enable the typical features of a PWA (Progressive Web App), the first thing that should be done is to register a service worker; in this way, the PWA can be installed on the device chosen by the user, can enable push notifications and can function without an Internet connection.

Service Workers are compatible with almost all major browsers (the only one that does not work is Internet Explorer).
