Abstract [en]

Web applications are often described as being cross-platform. They are accessible from a multitude of different web browsers, which in turn are running on a multitude of different operating systems. For a time now, developers have used many different tools to create cross-platform applications for mobile devices with web technologies. However, these applications fail to deliver when taken out of their native environment, and often do not feel native at all. Enter Progressive Web Applications, PWA. PWA’s are applications written for the web with web technologies, running in a browser,  but seasoned with some techniques that can make them behave like a native application when running on a mobile device. They are just ordinary web applications with native behaviour such as offline support, installability, and push notifications. The question that arises is - can this new type of web applications match Native Android Applications in performance, especially the response time when accessing the device's hardware? This report will try to answer that question
