How to install Desktop.com?

Installation guide

Desktop.com will be installed as a PWA

Progressive Web Apps (PWA) are hybrid web pages that can be downloaded to your device just like a native APP and are designed to mimic native APP user experiences.

Once a user Installs or Adds to their Home Page — PWA’s behave just like APPs. While the number of mobile users is growing each day — slow connections are an everyday problem for many and result in frustrating user experiences. PWA’s are a great solution thanks to faster loading speeds and since they can even work while offline.
