That's the minimum version that supports the feature in the documentation.

For example, we are currently on Firefox 66, but the feature that you are looking at is compatible with any version of Firefox that is at least version 45.

Hope this helps.

Could be in reference to the EdgeHTML version.

Yes, but if it is EdgeHTML it should say that. There is no Edge V14. It does not exist. It makes no sense at all.

Looking into it some more, it appears that James is probably right. EdgeHTML is the engine that Microsoft Edge used to use for rendering websites. So, although the Edge browser version has increased rapidly, the EdgeHTML version (which is what we really care about when talking about browser compatibility) didn't increase as rapidly.

Right, so it should say that. EdgeHTML V14 is the min version. Not Edge 14.

MDN's forum is here: https://discourse.mozilla.org/c/mdn

The project that collates the data for those tables is managed here: https://github.com/mdn/browser-compat-data

One of those would be a better place to take up this question, but I'm not sure which.
