    With progressive web apps being pushed by Microsoft, Google and Apple it would make sense to do a Brewers Friend PWA. This way live tiles would work and we could have a tile in the start menu instead of opening a browser, going to favorites and opening a tab. I end up having to open the tab in a separate browser and split screen so I don't have to go back and forth between tabs.

    I would rather use my brewing software in an app form rather than a browser tab. This will allow for better functionality with the Windows OS.

    Many people use a laptop when brewing and the majority are W10, this would help bring the software into the future by allowing a single program across all devices instead of needing/maintaining separate apps.

    With PWA's there is no need to write another app and it will work on all devices. The app will work just like the web page but without the browser.
