Hi,

the latest Eclipse release supports of Edge as browser. Currently it still has some limitations but the SWT team hopes to solve them over time. See https://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#howuseedge for details.

The edge support was developed for one of our clients who paid for this, in case functionality is missing, we can also evaluate if it is possible to close this gap.

Copied from Email: Hi , Thanks for reply . What i understood from your reply the new version of Eclipse RCP supports Edge but it has some issues related to SWT and SWT team is working on it. Is there a way to change the browser support from Internet Explorer to Edge in my current Eclipse Version. My Eclipse Version is version=3.7.0 Eclipse 3.7 Indigo

Are the RCP desktop application depends upon the IE browser ? If microsoft stop supporting IE browser will it effect the working of my desktop application?
