  2. Support "wheel" events for 2-finger scrolling on Precision Touch Pads (like every other browser does, and every other trackpad does)

    Microsoft Edge is the only browser that doesn't support 2-finger scrolling properly. Sure, it scrolls the web page, but it doesn't fire wheel events. It instead just lets the OS handle it. This breaks critical functionality not only on the web, but also in many Windows 10 apps that are built using js/html (which is executed by the Edge engine). The biggest example is Flipboard, which doesn't let you "flip" through pages using the scroll gesture on the precision trackpad that Microsoft's own Hardware ships with (every Surface Pro / Book for the past 3+ years).

    To verify the problem,…

  8. requestIdleCallback

    requestIdleCallback is the way that adopting requestAnimationFrame allowed us to schedule animations properly and maximize our chances of hitting 60fps, requestIdleCallback will schedule work when there is free time at the end of a frame, or when the user is inactive.

  9. Support CSS Animation and Transition for SVG Properties on SVG Elements

    Support CSS Animations and Transitions for SVG Properties on SVG Elements like:
    stroke-dashoffset, stroke-dasharray, fill, stroke and so on.

    Example Animation CSS that should work:

    .svg {
    animation:svg-animation 1.5s ease-in-out infinite;
    }

    @-webkit-keyframes svg-animation {
    0% {
    stroke-dasharray: 1, 50;
    stroke-dashoffset: 0;
    }
    100% {
    stroke-dasharray: 50, 150;
    stroke-dashoffset: -100;
    }
    }

    Currently this example is working in all browsers except in Edge.
    I am not really sure if this is feature is SMIL, but since the animations are declared in CSS this shouldnt be really SMIL.

    Would be nice to get some feedback.

    Best regards,
    Rene

  12. Mac version of Edge

    Produce a Mac version of Edge so developers on Mac can see how their work effects Edge users. This would also improve the user experience for people running Edge on Windows.

  17. Bring `gap` property to flexbox

    As outlined in the linked issue, having the ability to use grid-gap on flexbox (which is soon to be renamed just "gap" by the CSS Working Group because "grid-gap" doesn't make sense when used on flexbox) solves a major pain point that developers are facing.

    See the issue for more details:

  18. Better image scaling. No more jaggies for downscaled images!

    Responsive websites typically send a larger version of an image and then scale it down to match the available space on-screen. This is especially important in mobile when the user can change screen sizes without a reload by changing from portrait to landscape, for example. Even the Microsoft websites utilize this kind of responsive design.

    What does this have to do with IE? Well if you do this with IE the insane image scaling will provide images so jagged even the largest fonts become unreadable.

    In earlier versions of IE we could use a nonstandard CSS property to switch to…

  20. Improve default focus style

    The default "dotted outline" style for elements with focus (e.g. links), is not particularly easy to see, especially if you have poor vision.

    Can this default be changed to look more like the focus style on OSX, which is a thick blue outline.

    You can see the difference by changing the "normal style" and "focus style" radio field at the top of this page:
