Google has officially released a new Chrome Beta version, with a spotted feature that allows you add a webpage as Shortcut to Home Screen. For example: When a mobile site is launched and you want to “Add to Home Screen” through the Chrome options, a shortcut will appear. According to Google, this feature is called Progressive Web Apps.
One unique thing i noticed about this feature is that, it doesn’t act as a normal bookmark shortcut, but as an app that can draw notifications, be uninstalled and such. This is really important for users who want to browse a site alone instead of downloading the website’s app, if at all the website has an App.
Other new features of the Chrome Beta v57.0 are the “CSS Grid Layout” that gives developers more options of positioning various segments on media player lockscreens.
