Citrix StoreFront 3.0 and Windows 10 Edge Browser
The default browser for Windows 10 is the new Edge browser. As it stands, Edge does not support ActiveX Control or any other form of browser extensions. This makes it impossible for Citrix Receiver for Web to detect whether the native Receiver is installed and smoothly invoke the native Receiver to launch applications.
If you have read my previous blog about how StoreFront 3.0 supports Google Chrome without NPAPI, you may ask why we cannot use the same technology i.e. URI handler to support Edge. URI handler is, indeed, supported by Edge to invoke a native program. Unlike Chrome, however, Edge does not provide an option for the user to ask the browser to remember their choice in the invocation prompt as shown below.
Had we adopted this technology for Edge, users would be prompted with this dialog every time they tried to launch an application, which (and I’m sure you’ll agree with me) would not result in a good user experience. With this limitation, we have taken a number of steps to mitigate the usability shortcoming.
