Right now I'm trying websites as edge apps like I've made Gmail, Outlook, Twitter, Google photos etc , What I've noticed, is that there are so many differences in both of them like:-

  • There is no collections option in edge apps while this option is available in normal website.
  • Edge apps still using old notifications while it should be using windows 10 style notifications and as normal website,
  • and many more........

@fawkes Questions for you:-

  • Why make them different? I don't get the point? Isn't it better to have the same functionality?
  • For the sake of the information, can you share, What are other differences in between them?
  • Is it possible in the future, that they both have same functionality?
