Remove IE11/Edge dependency on Windows


Are there any plans to get rid of the dependency of IE11/Edge as part of AppStudio on Windows? I’m trying to get it to run under Linux (wine), but get through IE11/Edge on wine is no piece of cake.


It’s used by the Design Screen, rather than having to build a complete browser into AppStudio.

It’s probably worth checking if the new Edge browser makes this easier.

I also tried MS Edge under wine and some said they made it work in very special circumstances, very unstable, back in release 78 (it is now at release 84). I’m just wondering since Edge moved to be Chromium-based, if we could meet this AppStudio requirement by using other software (Firefox, for example - it is very well supported under Wine).
