Steps to reproduce

Split screen between Edge and any other program, then open a responsive site. Notice how at the narrow width, Edge uses the mobile view of the site as you would expect for a responsive site, right?

Now turn on Tablet mode, but keep the exact same two-app split. Suddenly edge zooms way out until the page is not usable or able to even read.

Why does a tablet user get punished? Just because you want a finger-friendly UI shouldn’t force you to abandon the mobile/tablet optimized view of a page. In fact quite the opposite: you SHOULD have a nice responsive view.

(The same test works fine in every other browser, including IE. Only Edge breaks the site).
