        Jesus Christ! I swear you guys are almost singlehandedly holding back the pace of the web with the lack of support of so many features. What do the Safari, Firefox and Chrome teams have in terms of resources that you guys don't?

        Platform status page could use an update.... Supported in Safari for a couple of years now, un-prefixed since Safari 10.1 (Mar 2017). And it will be supported in FF 62 in August 2018. Edge the only major player left with nothing in this regard.

        "CSS Shapes is now on the Microsoft Edge backlog with a priority of medium. "

        Please set priority to high? We're in 2017 already.

        Last night @jensimmons presented CSS3 Shapes to a packed house at the SFHTML5 Meetup. Trust me, everyone there wants CSS3 Shapes compatibility in Edge- it's a layout game-changer for sure!! IE 10 has a real chance at getting out in front in the array of browsers; CSS3 Shapes implemented properly will be one of the ways for IE 10 to truly be on the cutting "Edge" (I couldn't resist).

        Yes, please implement CSS Shapes Level 1!

        Shapes Level 1 is now fully supported in Chrome, in Safari (both on Mac and iOS), and Opera. Firefox and Internet Explorer are now in a race to see who'll be last to implement it. http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-shapes

        I've been teaching CSS Shapes in conference presentations, and people are *incredibly* excited about Shapes. When I presented at CSS Dev Conf, people's mouths were literally hanging open, eyes wide with excitement. It was non-stop comments like these: https://twitter.com/elmofromok/status/521699333138165760 and https://twitter.com/lavalight/status/521699890900914176

        This is one of those CSS properties that is going to take off quickly. It's a place where IE can regain developer respect by getting to this sooner, rather than later.
