Hi everyone, Microsoft Edge Insider is taking good shape so far and I was hoping the Install site as an app feature could be further improved. As I use lots of web apps like Linkedin, Gmail, Facebook Messenger and others, if you click on any link, it will open a tab on the main Edge browser instead of inside the site app. This should at least have a toggle so for example on Linkedin if I want to open a few more profiles I can do that without having now to switch between my Linkedin site app and regular Edge browsing session.

 

Could the Open site as an app be further improved? I believe it will benefit a lot of people.

 

List of Site apps I use at the moment

  1. Sharepoint
  2. Outlook
  3. Zoho CRM
  4. Quotientapp
  5. Linkedin
  6. Facebook Messenger
  7. Whatsapp
  8. Google Contacts
  9. Gmail
  10. Google Messenger
  11. Google photos

+1 would be a awesome improvement

It could also give the option to open inside the site app or outside by for example holding shift while clicking on something or another hotkey as when you do now to open a link in a new window.

 

The that gives the end-user the choice where they want the links to open

Hi,
By "open site as an app" do you actually mean "install site as an app" ?

If not, can you post a screenshot of that option?

@HotCakeX yes I meant install the site as an app, apologies about my mistake

This would be great indeed!

@fawkes Cool, I'm glad to see development team here listing to our feedback. You guys are doing a great job with Edge insider, I've already converted a lot of sysadmins in other companies to it after long debates in networking meeting groups :)

@AlexBleicker  We're so happy that you're having such a positive experience! We really love this product and are stoked to hear that you and others are also giving it a try. All of us on the Edge Insider Team,  along with our Devs, love hearing your thoughts, so please keep them coming. :)
