Needs support for new versions of Microsoft Edge

Looking at the platforms planning stage for edge (https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/webdriver/details/) it would be nice to have an update here. I have updated a lot of code to try and use only css selectors and still running into issues with various methods. Looks like most of those issues are cleaned up with more current releases.

    Edge 20 crashes when running our tests, probably because of this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/apps_windows_10-msedge/edge-browser-refresh-this-page-is-having-a-problem/a261c530-7b65-49cf-9517-589d11dcbe81

     

    Please offer more recent Edge versions!

    Sauce Labs need to be tracking newer builds of Edge because supporting 20.10240 is really not up to the task of running real test suites.

    Sauce Labs has marked that request for Edge support as "Shipped" but really this amounts to nothing more than perfunctorily checking a box in a list of features. I've done the box checking thing sometimes, usually to satisfy some manager somewhere who likes to see checked boxes quite irrespective of the actual value being delivered by the actual activity that justifies checking the box. So I sympathize with the box checking but here, in the real world, the fact is that as we speak there's no way to run anything more than toy test suites with Edge. When you're delivering full blown applications the test suites that come with it are not at the "toy" level.

    I'd also like testing the new Edge version 25 because it is a major upgrade to the EdgeHTML rendering engine that has been released a month ago (https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2015/11/16/introducing-edgehtml-13-our-first-platform-update-for-microsoft-edge/).

    I am definitely in need to test our webapp in this new browser.
