Why do browsers promote installing progressive web apps, but

Why do browsers promote installing progressive web apps, but don`t promote opening installed progressive web apps? I`ve visualized what this might look like on desktop and mobile devices. PWA ProgressiveWebApps Installability FeatureDiscoverability UX UserExperience
On android link capturing is enabled by default, so links should open in apps. We`re shipping similar capabilities through declarative link capturing and launch event handling for desktop!
From my point of view the main benefit is shortcut / icon on the screen. The standalone view / without browser UI is insignificant. So then annoying _open app_ prompt is useless since you`re already using the app/website.
What are the benefits of opening something you have already opened?
Good luck with getting that :)
@Mustafa_x And one of the most requested features by PWA developers is a JS API that allows to open the installed PWA to rename the custom "Install" button to "Open" after installing the PWA. This is useful, for example, when creating a PWA store (catalog). cc.
@Mustafa_x My point is that browsers should not only promote *installing* PWAs, but promote *using* (opening) PWAs.
Yeah a button appears to open the installed pwa
Edge already does this. If there is an installed PWA the browser will display a different icon on the omnibox that allows to directly open the installed app.
