    • Hello:

      Thank you for your feedback. At this time we do not plan on making this change.

      This is actually working as expected. The Date object doesn’t have any properties, so when you run “return new Date();” you get an empty object. If you instead run “return Date();” it will return a string with the date/time contained. This works the same as Chrome.

      We continue to welcome more feedback and look forward to hearing from you again soon.

      Best regards,
      The Microsoft Edge Team
