I've never liked any 'web view' implementation Micros~1 has done
Although on the surface it seems as if a 'web view' component or C++ class would be convenient for generating a user interface, it would seem to me that they're missing the boat on this COMPLETELY.
I saw something like this creep into MFC a decade or so ago, tried it, and didn't like how it was tied in so heavily to Internet Explorer. And of course, how it is NOT portable to Linux or FreeBSD.
I've toyed with things _like_ WebKit, and the dependency hell it can cause. It's disappointing.
On an Android you can create a "web app" pretty easily, and it's all built-in. not like I really think THAT is a better solution, it's convenient for things that already exist as internet web pages [so that the "web app" basically embeds the browser page]. For a few kinds of solutions, this actually makes sense because you can literally open a specific hard-coded web page with an "app" icon that way (and sometimes that's easiest for installation).
But the general NON-PORTABILITY of this kind of web page container/class/whatever is pretty disappointing.
If there were a LIGHTWEIGHT LIBRARY for web support, I'd be interested. So far, though, I'm DISAPPOINTED.
And having to invoke "the latest bleeding 'Edge'" to make it work... no. Just no.
