II. Purpose and Usage

In conjunction with Favicons 6.1, this component enables your visitors to install your site as a Progressive Web Application (PWA) on their devices.

The desktop variants of Chrome and Edge are displaying an extra 'install' icon you can click onto, while on mobile devices a message will appear at the bottom of the device.
