Microsoft developing new browser called Spartan which has new rendering engine (Edge), but it also has different User Agent which we are not detecting now when user enters

What to change

Update server side IE detection and anwiki infrastructure to also detect Spartan browser and IE browsers in Edge mode.


User agent for Internet Explorer for Windows 10 in Edge mode:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/39.0.2171.71 Safari/537.36 Edge/12.0

@fhd I have doubt that current serverside implementation of IE detection is not consistent with the one we have in anwiki repo:

\bMSIE\ \d+

Because it doesn't match most of IE 11 user agents while we still detecting them:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

Would it be possible to have both implementations in sync ?
Or maybe I should consider this ticket as the infrastructure one ?
