The web platform is more powerful than ever, and we’re on the cusp of a revolution in what web sites and web apps are capable of. In this session, we take a quick tour of what’s new in Microsoft Edge and the Windows web platform, and then chart our course for the year ahead: New capabilities that make next-generation web experiences virtually indistinguishable from native apps, and new features and improvements that will raise the bar for what a browser can do.

    Kyle here — quick correction to part of my talk! I attributed the term "Progressive Web Apps" to Alex Russell, when in fact credit should go to Frances Berriman (@phae on Twitter), who coined the name and worked with a Alex to define the ten characteristics I describe in this talk. You can learn more about the backstory in Alex's post here:

    Please update the Edge devtools.

    Even better, please add a way to reset Edge to a functional state other than "run this obscure PowerShell command set," creating a new profile, or reinstalling/resetting Windows (not sure if a reset saving profile data would actually work anyway).
