RFT supports for Microsoft Edge with IE mode

Now, we are using Microsoft Edge but web application designed for IE is still remaining.

Therefore, we request RFT supports Edge with IE mode.

    We have the same issue here with a massive payment system. It will be a long time before our digital branch can port the application to edge, so we need to run compatibility mode to have it function correctly. Without the ability to test in compatibility mode, we are in a very tight spot, as we cannot currently use RFT for this.

    our main application was developed many years ago and requires Edge browser with compatible mode enabled. We already have many RFT scripts to test application and have also moved browser standard from IE to Edge. We need to be able to test application using agency standard interface.
