At this year’s Build conference in May, we announced the Win32 preview of the WebView2 control powered by the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge. Since then, we have been engaging with the community and partners to collect a great deal of feedback, and delivering SDK updates every six-weeks.
To demonstrate the new WebView’s capabilities, we built a sample browser app (we call it WebView2Browser) using the WebView2 APIs. The intent was to develop a rich sample that benefits other developers building on top of WebView2, and to provide direct feedback to the rest of the WebView2 team from first-hand app-building experience. The sample features an array of functionalities, such as navigation, searching from the address bar, tabs, favorites, history, and verifying a secure connection.

Apart from the WebView2Browser sample, you can also learn more about WebView2 through our documentation and getting-started guide. Tell us what you plan to build with WebView2 and we’re excited to hear your thoughts on our feedback repo.
