Microsoft Edge new PWA menu design

The developers at Microsoft are hard at work redesigning the PWA menu in the latest Canary build for the Edge browser, according to Reddit.

This comes only a short time after we discussed the new productivity-boosting PWA integration changes coming to Google Chrome.

The PWAs menu for Microsoft Edge is getting redesigned

In their uninterrupted process towards making PWAs appear the same as regular apps, the lead designers at Microsoft have decided to revamp the taskbar menu for PWAs.

This integration will make changing settings for your PWAs a lot more easier and accessible, being located on the top right of the browser taskbar.

As you can see in the photo below, this is how the old PWAs ellipsis menu looks, as explained by one tech-savvy user.

More practical, even better looking

The new version of this dropdown menu will be slightly different, allowing for a more compact and easy-to-use option listing. It now features fewer items at its root level and displays a large app icon instead.

This is how it will look after Microsoft is done with the changes, as shown here by one of the users.

No official release date for this makeover has been made public yet by Microsoft, but we can more than likely expect it in the near future.

This new addition will surely be welcomed with open arms by users everywhere, as it favors practicality above all and, lets be honest, it has a pretty nice design as well.
