Comment (by dd32):

 That specific rule could probably be applied regardless of if the browser
 is IE Edge, but I do understand where you're coming from.
 Like it or not, browser targeting is still required sometimes. Perhaps a
 `$is_IE_Edge` def is better suited, but at the end of the day, perhaps
 just sticking with `$is_IE` and not caring about which rendering engine it
 is is the best way to go.
