Steps to reproduce

Using Edge 64-bit

open developer tools.
Go to the “console tab”
type “navigator.platform”

the result is “Win32”

it should be "Win64".

Chrome is planning to change this in so it would be good if Edge did so too! Thanks

    • Note that Firefox 64-bit and IE 11 64-bit both report “Win64” here, so this isn’t just about matching Chromium.
