Microsoft discussed quite a few new features for its Edge browser at Build 2022. The improvements to Edge will result in a better experience for Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) and enhance WebUI 2/UWP apps. The browser’s DevTools received a refresh recently, which should make it easier to use.

Some of these features were already available for Edge, but Build 2022 served as a convenient way to highlight them all in one place.

This isn’t an update to Edge itself. Rather, Microsoft announced that WinUI 2/UWP applications will be able to take advantage of the Chromium-based Edge’s WebView2. Sometime over the next few months, developers will be able to have hybrid applications utilize WebView2.
