Web apps support for desktop browser too?

  • In Chrome and almost every other Chromium based browser, there is an option to make some website showing like a application (web app) on desktop mode and even run them from the system with a shortcut icon.

    These PWA (Progressive Web Apps) idea is to load without browser user interface elements, but i dont find that option in Opera desktop? Even Opera itself as a company promote PWA on it's mobile side but why they dosnt have support in the desktop?

    And i dont mean that they not load in Opera, ofcourse they load but i dont want see any of the bars or other elements from the browser when running them (idea of pwa). So just bring that feature back from the Chromium source to Opera too.

  • Yup I want it to. For this reason I (temporary) switched my browser to Edge Beta. Just saying I'm using Opera since 2008. But I want to use Opera instead. I switched to Opera for modern components.
    But if Edge add support Thumbnail for bookmarks, that's mean too late for Opera. I can switch Edge for just for this reason.
    I mean, I want to use my apps like this:
    Edge PWA

  • Here is another vote for PWA support in Opera desktop. By that I mean, opera loads the website, but treats it as an application.
