Interoperability and Compatibility
This feature is new to the web and web apps that do not opt in will not be affected because any additions to the web app manifest will be optional. Browser behavior will also not be affected if there
are no installed apps that opt in. Browser that do not support this feature will not be adversely affected by new members in the web app manifest.
Gecko: No signal
WebKit: No signal
Web developers: Positive (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/click-url-to-open-pwa-automatically/m-p/2192994)
