Questions about TWebbrowser in 10.2

I'm currently using XE8 for a client, and have run into issues with TWebbrowser. I've seen some references to fixes in Delphi 10.2, but no details. I'm wondering if these are fixed in Delphi 10.x.

I'm targeting Windows and OSX. Here's what I'm up against:

1. Keyboard arrow keys don't work to navigate in Windows (I'm trying to use the Ace code editor) https://ace.c9.io/

2. Can you use more than one browser control in a form?

Can anyone give me any details on this?

If no one has any details on this, can someone compile the Firemonkey Webbrowser demo app in the latest XE 10 for me to try out?

I tested this in Tokyo 10.2.1 on Windows. Arrow keys worked (I clicked in a text field and moved the cursor left and right). I also tested 2 TWebBrowser on the same form and that worked too though it seemed like one TWebBrowser being slow loading or scrolling made both slow.

There is also TChromiumFMX vs. the built in TWebBrowser that uses IE11.

Thanks, I'll look into that some more, but my initial testing indicates that each arrow key results in a move of three columns or lines for each key press.
