Edge Inspect doesn't emulate. In both of our device clients we've built in the appropriate web components (WebView - Android / UIWebView - iOS) and display the web pages in those components.
Hope this helps,
Hi Mark, thanks for your reply!
I think that answers my question for the most part. If I am to understand correctly: native apps render from OS specifics (WebView/UIWebView) like you mentioned, but a web app would render depending on the browser you're currently using. If this is incorrect, I would love to know!
If I understand what you're saying, there is a slight correction I'd make - it's true that native apps render according to the OS and a web app will render according to the browser you're using.
But when Edge Inspect renders web pages it uses the WebView/UIWebView components that are essentially trimmed down versions of the native browsers on the devices. So the rendering you see in Edge Inspect should be virtually identical to what you'd see in the native browser on the device.
Great explanation Mark, very clear and helpful. Thank you!
