Support Request: Question about IE Browser Engine


Hello, in november 2021 we opened this case:

Good morning,
our customer that runs many sitekiosk installation on their environment told us that starting from next months they stop to use internt explorer browser due for company policy reasons.
We don't know if they will unistall IE from PCs or if they disable IE using some domain policies but we would like to know if they could have some problems using their sitekiosk applications.
Sitekiosk configuration has been created using Internet Explorer as browser engine and Strat Screen Skin with Metro IE skin as browserskin.
We are not sure what will happens to their application if they will uninstall or disable IE from PCs.
The will maintain Microsoft Edge on that PCs so they ask to us to check if using Microsoft Edge browser instead Internet Explorer on the sitekiosk machines is enough to run sitekiosk applications whitout chenging the existing configuration.
Could you please answer this question?

Now after some monhts we would like to know if there are any updates about this case; i mean if there are some new information about the use of sitekiosk with Edge Browser instead Internet Explorer.
Do you have new version that include the Edge engine (if exist) or do you have in road map some new feature about edge integration?
Or the only way is to use the chrome engine?
Kind Regards

In general, we recommend using the Chrome browser skin for the SiteKiosk browser, which is based on a Chromium CEF browser engine installed with SiteKiosk.
The IE Skins are legacy and only implemented for customers who still need an IE-based browser in SiteKiosk for compatibility reasons.

The Webbrowser control will continue functioning on Windows 10 after IE11 has been retired. Just like on Windows 11, where IE is not present.
Also see FAQ:

Currently there are no plans to integrate the Edge browser that also is based on a Chromium Engine.
