Microsoft is working on a reimagining of the Edge web browser, codenamed "Phoenix," that is designed to better differentiate Microsoft Edge from the rest of the browser competition with a fresh new UI that's consistent with Windows 11, unique productivity features and deeper integration with Windows.

First revealed by WalkingCat on Twitter, Edge Phoenix is an internal reimagining of the browser. It's something Microsoft has been working on since last summer and is being built in pieces. Some parts of the Phoenix vision can already be tested using feature flags in the various preview versions of Edge.

One such feature is the updated UI with rounded tabs and other elements designed to make the browser look more like a native Windows 11 app.

A new "split view" feature also lets users view two web pages side by side under a single tab. That feature is already in early testing in Microsoft Edge.
