Define arbitrary shapes inside and around which inline content can flow.
CSS Shapes is now on the Microsoft Edge backlog with a priority of medium. You can track status updates at https://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/shapes/
This is a W3C standard and the way I look at it, you should take as much time as you need to consider your choice of implementing this or not. It's not like the web needs standards. Standards are not important.
Some web developers think that (1) W3C published standards should be of the upmost & highest priority to your team to implement and (2) W3C working drafts should be considered higher priority than internal projects - these 2 things go hand and hand making our jobs easier as well as improving our user's experience.
Thanks for not doing this, and implementing a voting system where we the people can tell you how important a W3C established standard should be to your implementation of a web browser.
Thanks for reading my satirical comment,

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).
The web would be a better looking place with CSS Shapes!

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.
