How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Security Tab - to show TLS/SSL, CSP, SRI, etc features

Add a "Security" tab to highlight features that the browser provides.

e.g. most developers have no idea what a CSP (Content Security Policy) header is... and even if implemented, the only way to view it is though the network headers (not easy to read).

This new tab can help list features, and make suggestions on how to make improvements (e.g. adding HSTS, or HPKP, or X-XSS-Protection, or X-Frame-Options headers).

I've started making a mockup on GitHub, so you can click around to see what could be included (I bet there is at least one thing on there you didn't know about):

Pull requests welcome :-)

For reference, I am aware of the request for browser extensions, but as this is focusing on developer education, it would ideally be part of the base installation.
