Hi,

Yeah I know but:

  1. in edge://version/ it's no longer dynamic.
  2. This: edge://version/ is not a website for Edge to impersonate another browser UA in order to load it better.
  3. before this update, Edge would show the correct UA on websites. I tested it in many different websites and all of them show the same static UA.
  4. even if it was for impersonating purposes, why choose Chrome 75, that's like so random, the latest stable version is Chrome 80.
  5.  I don't think it's trying to impersonate, it still says "Edge" but with a wrong version.
  6. Edge 75 never existed, lol. the first Edge version was 76 or 77.
