Steps to reproduce

I don’t currently have access to a Microsoft Edge implementation, so the below are a few points I believe Microsoft Edge does wrong regarding the console.countReset() implementation, but someone should double-check total standards compliance with this method.

  • When calling console.count();console.countReset(), no new output should be produced by the call to countReset(). In Edge’s case, this means you can go back and change earlier output, but nothing new should be added (since Printer is not called in the standard).
  • When calling console.countReset("label-with-no-counter-associated"), console.countReset(), or something of the like, the specification mandates that a warning should be dispatched via the developer console, however none is dispatched in Edge currently.

Again, if someone could double-check Edge’s overall behavior with that outlined in the console that would be ideal, since I don’t have access.
