    Hi @Bonnie Whalon

    Just like what shows in the roadmap, the new Web Browser Control (to support Chromium Edge) in Access is in development.

    We usually use WebView2 to embed Edge in app. I guess the new Web Browser Control will use WebView2. The WebView2 control uses Microsoft Edge (Chromium) as the rendering engine to display the web content in native apps.
