Microsoft is working badly on the development of Edge PWAs. Starting with Edge in Canary channel v85.0.545.0 added a new option which when enabled add support for tabs in the PWAs window.
The purpose of adding Tab in Edge PWAs window is to make it easier for the users to launch open multiple instance of applications. The feature is hidden behind flags and if you want to try it, then here’s how you can enable it:
Make sure, you’re running Microsoft Edge in Canary in channel v85.0.545.0.
Next, you need to visit
edge://flags/#enable-desktop-pwas-tab-strip and using Desktop PWA tab strips change settings from Default to Enabled.
Click on the Restart button to apply the changes.
After doing this, if you install Edge PWAs. For that, you need to visit any supported website. For example, Twitter and then click on the (+) icon.
In a install dialog, check the box for “Open as tabbed window“, this will install the PWA. From now onwards, Edge PWAs window will have tabs just like in browser.
What are your thoughts about Microsoft adding tab support in the Edge PWAs window? Are you going to enable the feature? Let us know in the comments.
Thanks, Florian B for the tips!
