Any plans to update UR to use Edge Chromium WebView2?
Just wondering if Kinook is planing to update UR to use the new Edge Chromium APIs.


Last year, we pushed WebView2 forward with a preview for Win32 development. WebView2 lowers the barrier for developers to maximize code reuse across platforms with a consistent web platform to host web content in their apps. We’d like to thank everyone that has engaged with us so far throughout the preview—the contributions and feedback we’ve received drive our feature roadmap and quality.

Today, we’re expanding the preview with new options for .NET and UWP (WinUI 3.0) development, enabling you to embed a Chromium-based Edge WebView in WinForms, WPF, and UWP (WinUI 3.0) applications. Check out our documentation and Getting Started guide, or simply open Visual Studio and download the WebView2 package to get started.

Yes, it is on the todo list.

This is great to hear.

I know UR is not meat to replace a browser, but certainly, its current internal browser is pretty outdated.
Happy to see UR updating it base technologies.
