Why does new Edge use crdownload name when downloading rather than actual filename.partial?

Not applicable

When downloading a file, example Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_18950.iso
the new Edge uses a name like "Unconfirmed 12345.crdownload" in the download directory
rather than real Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_18950.iso.partial like previous Edge.

This is an interesting question and I am not certain as to why that was the initial setup, though based on the filename structure, it appears to refer to a Chromium download.
