Microsoft has announced a new design feature for Edge 96, currently only in the Canary channel for the Edge browser.
For a subset of users, Microsoft is testing a new design to better manage your installed web apps. When you go to
edge://apps in your browser, it now displays a redesigned hub that lists installed PWAs and websites as apps.
You can now sort your apps by any of the following:
- Recently used.
- Alphabetically, based on the title.
- Date of installation.
You can also arrange apps in a list or grid view.
Additionally, you can easily pin apps to the taskbar or Start menu. You can create a shortcut, and enable apps to run on user login.
Also, there’s now a way to easily access the following:
- Permissions and privacy details for the associated origin.
- More details about the application.
If no major issue arises, the updated design should roll out to the dev channel in 2-3 weeks.
