Steps to reproduce

http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?saved=4163 (and a similar version for createDocument) should log “about:blank” in the Log: section. Instead, in Edge, it logs "http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?saved=4163".

This was a recent spec change, sort of. See https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/1174. Browsers do not have interop here, but “about:blank” is the best thing to converge on.
