    • Good question.  Let me find out.


    • Edge does not yet support headless mode.

      It is a missing feature that we are aware of.  There is already a uservoice entry for it.  Vote for it.  :)

    • MICROSOFT EDGE TEAM and Steve K, you guys are a bunch of losers. One major thing that held IE back is the fact that’s is crap for automation, you lost the SDET community. Instead of making Edge super testable, you’re missing major testability features that are on other older browsers. You don’t get it. Yes, you guys are a bunch of losers.

    • You’re waiting for the community to raise noise before you support something you should really have supported from day 1? No wonder. A bunch of losers.

    • Couldn’t agree more.

    • I’ve generally been impressed with Edge, even though I shunned IE nearly two decades ago and never looked back. However, the fact that there is no headless mode indicates MS is still behind the times WRT modern development practices, which demand automated testing…something that is made much more cumbersome without headless capabilities. I’d really like to see Edge succeed…but this makes it significantly harder for organizations to ensure their apps work with your browser. :(
