Early 2020 the feature (also present in Chromium/Chrome) to freeze the user-agent (i.e. reduce the privacy impact) was made available in Edge.

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/new-privacy-oriented-feature-added-to-edge-82-fre...

 

Currently the upstream project has modified their ideas on how to do this (for one not all desktops are Windows 10) as described here: https://www.chromium.org/updates/ua-reduction

 

Checking to see how Edge now does this I was unable to find this setting ( edge://flags/ )at all in version 94.0.992.50.

I have also tried searching through the release notes which came up empty.

 

So my question is what the status is in Edge for this feature?

 

NOTE: I'm asking to make my (quite widely used) analyzer as good as possible: https://yauaa.basjes.nl/
