"...the user agent string for the latest Dev Channel build of Microsoft Edge: "... Edg/74.1.96.24" We’ve selected the “Edg” token to avoid compatibility issues that may be caused by using the string “Edge,”..." We are now deliberately misspelling words in the User-Agent string.

This is to distinguish from CloudFlare servers or something? What's the Edge here?

Edge Servers are a genuine conflict. Edg is worse, I'd rather deal with the conflict as long as the positioning is ok

It is to distinguish from EdgeHTML, their failed Trident fork. I don't see an issue with this but we live in a world of incessant shithousery when it comes to UA strings
