Microsoft says that the experience and feature set of the new Edge set on Windows 7/8/8.1 will be “largely the same” as it is on Windows 10, including forthcoming support for Internet Explorer mode for our enterprise customers. That said, there are a few known issues, including the lack of Dark Mode and AAD sign-in support. Microsoft is working to resolve those issues soon.
