Yeah, I figured it out too, although through 'Search', I have edited my previous post
I believe Microsoft underestimated the importance of that 'mini-OS development' for a long, long time, kept patching and patching IE for an even longer time, and only very recently had to start from the bottom up. No wonder that Edge is in a catching-up mode.
I have been playing around in Edge and I like the look and the performance however....
However I do find this funny...
Edge on W10 phones is scarcely usable and I can't find replacement !!!
If you do Get external data ==>from web in Excel (excel2007/2010/2016 -- I don't have 2013) you'll get these popups continually appearing - making the thing useless -- and of course no good for running any more in the background.
I have to use Office 2010 in an XP VM to get the wretched thing to work now. !!!!!!! "Back to the FUTURE -->XP !!! " - still working fine).
Update for W10
If you go into developer mode (F12) and set Emulation --Document mode to IE10 and click on persistent (icon at extreme left of the bottom panel when in developer mode then you only get the script error ONCE. Click YES to continue running scripts (or excel will terminate) and then it all works fine - arrows etc for downloading data tables etc.
The persistent setting saves the emulation across sessions so you don't have to keep re-setting it each time you want to do a query.
Result of the import OK
