So, maybe I am just blind and never found the option, but in IE there was an option to get the properties of the loaded page, including the connection type and protocol being used.  This has come in handy throughout my career when trying to determine connectivity issues or compatibility issues.  I would love to know how you can get this same information in Edge when looking at the properties of a web site.

 

Is this possible in this version of Edge?  Is it something that can or will be added to Edge in the future?

 

Many thanks in advance.

For a webpage's connection information you can click on the Icon just to the left of the address bar, it is a Lock if on a secure Page, or an " i " in a circle for a Page that is not Secure, there are other options depending on if you are looking at a file. 

For the Properties, bring up the Console with F12 and you can see the Page Properties in the Properties tab in the lower pane of the Console.
