Windows 10 introduced a few enhancements to Windows web apps. They run with a different security context and on Microsoft Edge engine. There is also something called « project Westminster ». More simply, Westminster is « hosted applications », or applications that runs with content hosted on the internet but still have access to Windows APIs. You could find more about hosted apps on our blog, or obviously on Microsoft’s blog.
This application is open source, and available in the Windows store. It uses WinJS and WinJSContrib to provide a fast and fluid experience, using the latest features of Edge and Chakra engine (or at least those made available in web apps…).
