No it is not a glitch. In simple words MS Edge is infact just a skin/Theme for Chrome. Normally the user-agent for edge says Edg or Edge but older websites cannot detect the new edge browser so they detect chrome due to compatibility.

which product version are you using? an upgrade might help here.

I am currently using V 6.18 for the script runner and the edge browser is 88.0.705


if you see in the attach it shows that edge value is detected but browser comes upto be as chrome. Capture2.PNG

i thought that edge and chrome are from two different companies microsoft and google never  knew that it was the theme or the skin for Chrome . Let me check on that  

Edge and Chrome are indeed from MS and Google respectively.  MS dumped their browser technology and move to Chrome when they started building Edge.  Officially it was it makes no commercial sense to build your own tech, but from what I've heard and read, it was more to do with the MS technology being broadly rubbish and needing too much work to fix it.

Thank you @Danyal Iqbal @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  for your response . i have made my research about it and i am satisfied
