    if the PWA is installed from one of the browsers, is the expected behaviour for the “+” sign not to appear when the site’s URL is opened from a different browser
    i.e. If I opened the URL in chrome and installed it , is it expected that when I open the site in Edge, the + sign will not be visible for me to re-install?

      Hello Solange. Thanks for the question. The two browsers work independently and will not recognise if the other has downloaded the web application. Therefore, we recommend you choose to download the web application in your preferred and default web browser. Andrew
