  7. Chromium, please ensure LocalLinks are supported

    Browsers like Firefox and Chrome think it is a security vulnerability to support linking to LocalLinks (i.e. file://COMPUTER_NAME/FILESHARE/FILE.pdf"). Very short sighted for corporate environments that will have a ton of legacy applications that still link to local network resources via the file:// scheme.

  8. Microsoft Edge from PC to Phone

    You can send a website/tab from your phone to pc in edge. But you can't do the reverse. I don't know why Microsoft wouldn't allow that. It is very useful and shouldn't be hard to fix.

  9. mslaunchuri

    navigator.msLaunchUri is missing the new Chromium-based edge. Ideally, this should be contributed to Chromium itself, as there are no good way to detect if a handler for a protocol exist in browsers other than IE and Edge.

  10. Please be careful with making Edge Chromium-based

    I've recently read articles about the engine of Edge is being replaced by Chromium.

    I don't think this is a good idea. Microsoft Edge manages to do what no browser can do. It plays online HTML5 videos with the speed and low-resource need comparable to a native video player (like VLC or Media Player Classic).

    This is YouTube playback in Chrome and Edge compared, on the same hardware.

    Chrome and Chromium are famous about having a very catastrophic, bloated multimedia backend, especially when it comes to video playback. GPU acceleration is hardly compatible with any video hardware. Also it…

    When opening the library in Edge and clicking on New > Word Document

    Result: New File gets opened in the Browser.
    Existing Files open in Rich Client.
    Expected Result: New File Should be opened in Word 2016 Application.

    Further Testing:
    This behavior has been observed against SharePoint 2016 Sites.

    We tested on Modern Sites and here we noticed an not consistent behaviour: We had the files opened directly in…

  15. Add Support for S/MIME in Microsoft Edge

    Idea: Add support for S/MIME in Microsoft Edge browser. Since Microsoft Edge is the successor to IE in some regards I'm confused as to why they didn't add support for S/MIME. I, like many other government or business employees rely on this for viewing/sending encrypted mail.

    I do love the edge browser because it works so much better Outlook Web Access but not having the ability to install S/MIME really takes away from the experience.

    Has there been any discussion thus far as to why this hasn't been implemented?

  19. Open Local File with anchor

    We need to open a local html file with the default handler (in this case, it's edge).

    Unfortunatelly, edge is cutting all the query parameters and the anchor away.

    The following commands work for all the other browsers (including IE, Chrome and Firefox)

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello
    --> Resulting to file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello

    The edge interprets the command the following way:

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\LaunchWinApp.exe" "file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello"
    --> Resulting to file:///C:/Temp/test.html

    We need a workaround or a fix for this problem, otherwise we can't use the edge browser.
