How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

option to always show protocol

In Edge, if I'm developing on a site, I'm usually using a specific port (this is how Visual Studio works with IIS and IIS Express).

If I need to reload a page without having it post back again, I can't use the refresh button, but need to select the address bar and press return again.

In most other browsers, this works. In Edge, it asks to install an app to cope with the protocol "localhost:"

Please, can we have an option to always show the protocol in the address bar. It would save me having to retype "http://" several times a day, and would mean I'd do a lot more testing in Edge rather than IE.
