Steps to reproduce
I’m evaluating the “WebDriver for Microsoft Edge” and want to start the browser with a clean and fresh session (don’t want the browser history e.g. cookies, local storage, form data).
In the previous IE webdriver that I use for IE11, I can accomplish this by adding the desiredCapability ‘ie.ensureCleanSession’ but I cant find anything like that for the new Edge driver.
I’ve noticed that there’s a report logged (#4155493) about starting the browser in InPrivate mode but that’s not really what I’m looking for here but it might settle my needs for a while.
