Summary from selected parts and resources found below

There is also a new easier to read and manage XML schema available, but please note that this only works on IE11 and Edge in Windows 10 from Fall update. It will come in early 2016 to IE11 on Windows 7 and 8.1, so please do not try to use the new XML version on Windows 7/8.1 devices today.

With these updates and Windows 10 Fall update Microsoft sees the following options regarding what browser to choose

  • Use Microsoft Edge as your primary browser
  • Use Microsoft Edge as your primary browser and use Enterprise Mode to open sites in IE11 that use IE proprietary technologies
  • Use Microsoft Edge as your primary browser and open all intranet sites in IE11
  • Use IE11 as your primary browser and use Enterprise Mode to open sites in Microsoft Edge that use modern web technologies
  • Use IE11 as your primary browser
