Will all engines be replaced? Also when used in e.g. desktop apps WebView

my understanding is the XAML WebView will be EdgeHTML for the forseeable future. New Edge is not based on UWP, which I would think makes it more difficult to port to XAML.

@Korneliuscode 

The existing EdgeHTML based WebView will remain on the machine for the foreseeable future and apps already leveraging it will continue to operate exactly as they do today.

 

As a Chromium based Edge is our chosen path forward, we are planning on building a new webview on top of it. More details on that coming soon.
