Google is working on a new project called “Fizz” which is designed to make mobile web apps more like native apps. In other words, developers may eventually be able to send work even when you’re offline, send push notifications, or perform other actions just as if they were native apps.

You won’t even need to have a specific web page open in a browser tab for it to send or receive messages.

It’ll likely be a while before Fizz is fully integrated into the Chrome web browser, and it’ll be up to web developers to decide whether or not to take advantage of the features (and presumably it’ll be up to you to decide whether to let web apps send you push notifications or work offline). But it seems like Mozilla isn’t the only company that sees a future for mobile web apps.
