Microsoft launches Microsoft Edge Dev site, the “successor to Modern.IE”


Microsoft today held a web summit for its upcoming browser, Edge – where the company introduced some new additions and improvements to the Developer Tools (F12) for Edge. Alongside the new features on Edge, Microsoft has also launched a new developer site for Edge. The website is currently in beta, but you can visit it here. As Microsoft states, it’s the successor to Modern.IE where developers can known more about Edge, and also checkout the changelog for each update. Here’s what Microsoft Edge Dev includes:

  • A new Platform Status page: We’ve updated StatusIE based on your feedback to make it easier to filter and find the information you are looking for.
  • A Microsoft Edge change log: As we ship faster and more openly than ever, including early previews through the Windows Insider Program, we saw a need to provide an up-to-date listing of what’s new in each preview and stable release.
  • A new developer FAQ: We’ve compiled the most common questions from our #AskIE chats so you can find the answers to your questions about Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 on
  • Windows 10. This will be a living document – you can always reach out to @MSEdgeDev if your questions don’t appear here. Maybe we’ll add yours next!
  • We’ve updated our TestDrive website, where you can find open source and interoperable demos showing off the latest web platform technologies supported by Microsoft Edge.

For starters, Microsoft introduced Edge – the replacement for Internet Explorer on Windows 10. The browser was previously known as Project Spartan – which is available to Insiders currently, but Microsoft is planning to release Edge to Insiders in the future builds. Microsoft Edge includes some much-needed features such as Extensions support, and it’s also faster than any other browser in the market.

If you’re a web-developer, are you excited about Microsoft Edge?
