Our client received an email from Bing WMTs  saying ...
"We have identified 4 known issues with your website in Microsoft Edge – the new default browser for Windows 10 and Bing –  Of the four problems mentioned, only two seem to be relevant (maybe)
  • We’ve found that this webpage may include HTML markup that treats Microsoft Edge differently from other modern browsers. The new EdgeHTML rendering engine for Microsoft Edge is document-mode agnostic and designed for fast, modern rendering. We recommend that you implement one code base for all modern browsers and include Microsoft Edge as part of your modern browser test matrix.


  • We've found that this webpage may have missing vendor-specific prefixes or may have implemented vendor-specific prefixes when they are not required in common CSS properties. This may cause compatibility problems with how this webpage renders across different browsers.
Last month the client received 20K visitors from all IE browsers and this is significant if it truly is going to impact usability and indexing.
Are other folks making changes to their code to adapt to MS Edge?

Sounds more like an ad for their browser than anything else, to me!

Yes Jill I checked all our client's sites in the browser tool Bing provided and all of them had multiple "suggestions".  I don't see webmaster making these changes.  I can't believe there would be significant consequences from an indexing perspective.


I see you're enjoying your retirement!
