It is the world of internet and everything will stop if the internet is not working. The poor internet does not allow a complete and proper display of websites sometimes. With PWA, the offline mode is one of the biggest benefits. You can make any changes and they are saved automatically. To make an offline page all you will need is a brand logo, some information and some features you wish to highlight. If you have a business that will require a catalog then your customers can see the products in the offline mode. This not only keeps the customer engaged but will also help to retain them.
Another feature to highlight about the Progressive Web apps is that they give you an app-like feeling, yet having all the website features with the dynamic data & access to the database. It lets the user operate in similar settings.
