    How can I enable emulation of another browser in Chromium Edge?


    In IE and Edge prior to the new Chromium based Edge, I was able to press F12 to enter the developer settings and from there I could choose an open to emulate another browser such as Safari.

    For the life of me, I cannot figure out where to enable this in the new Chromium Edge (Credge). There is a screen that lists emulated devices (see screenshot below) but I cannot figure out where to actually select one of these to enable it.

    Would anyone be able to direct me to where this can be accomplished in Credge?

    Took me ages to find it too, but when they say 'emulate' an iPad they really mean it.



    See this post. It was in Edge Dev, but should still be the same...

    Bree, you've don it again. I tried selecting that "Toggle device toolbar" option but there's one more step after that I missed. But you got me exploring further after selecting that option and that finally got me to the solution. Apparently the trick is to select that "Toggle device toolbar" and then select the "Responsive" pull down like this:

    Thanks again for the help. I was just not having any luck in my searches.

    Interesting. Can you do emulation in Google Chrome?

    Apparently yes, in much the same way. In fact, much (if not all) of what is described here for Chrome...

    How to Use Mobile Emulation Mode in Chrome

    ...applies equally to Chromium Edge too, such as:

    "Smart phones and tablets often have sensors such as GPS, gyroscopes and accelerometers which are not present in desktop devices. These can be emulated in Chrome by choosing More tools then Sensors from the Developer Tools main three-dot menu".
