Release Notes

Debugging in Microsoft Edge

The latest preview release of Visual Studio enables debugging JavaScript in the new Microsoft Edge Insider browser for ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core projects. To do this, simply install the browser, set a breakpoint in the application’s JavaScript and start a debug session. Visual Studio will launch a new browser window with debugging enabled allowing you to step through your JavaScript code within Visual Studio.
