  1. Stop treating cursor: auto like cursor: inherit

    Currently in IE11 and MS Edge 1, cursor: auto is treated like cursor: inherit. Example:

    <div class="outer">
    <div class="inner">
    Text
    </div>
    </div>

    .outer{
    cursor: pointer;

    .inner {
    cursor: auto;
    }
    }

    If I hover over "Text", I get a pointer instead of the correct cursor (which should be the "text" cursor).

    • :matches()

      Implement this helpful selector. WebKit and Mozilla have early implementations defined as :-prefix-any(), and the specification has been stable on this for quite some time.

      • Support calc() for scroll-snap

        Length values in scroll-snap don’t support calc().

        The Firefox and Safari implementations of this property both support calc().

        For example, this works in Firefox/Safari:

        -webkit-scroll-snap-points-y: repeat(calc(100vh - 100px));
        scroll-snap-points-y: repeat(calc(100vh - 100px));

        But this doesn't work in Internet Explorer or Edge:

        -ms-scroll-snap-points-y: snapInterval(0%, calc(100vh - 100px));

        • Update CSS Scroll Snap Points

          Now that both Firefox 39+ and Safari 9 supports it in addition to being in development in Chrome, updating the Scroll Snap Points implementation to match the current spec is crucial. The current implementation from the IE 10 days is outdated and incompatible with the changes made since then.

          Why hasn't there been any talk regarding this, and why hasn't it been done already?

          Spec: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-snappoints/

          • CSS attr() as defined in CSS Values Level 3

            Allows attr() to be used in any CSS rule (not just generated content), any CSS property (not just content) and for various data types.

            Spec: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#attr-notation

            This will revolutionize what we can do with CSS and enable a kind of decoupling between content and styling that has never been possible before.

            • Fix display: table* in respect to content overflow

              Currently the CSS table property when used in IE does not render sub elements of table-row and table-cell types correctly. Parent container sizes are not respected and content extends the table element regardless of overflow attribute.

              http://jsfiddle.net/jrbu4yc8/1/
              dragging/resizing the bottom left (yellow) element causes the entire document to expand regardless of overflow attribute. IE is the only browser to do this.

              • image-rendering: pixelated

                This declaration is used to preserve pixels when scaling up images (e.g. pixel art). IE provides this functionality via -ms-interpolation-mode: nearest-neighbor. The other browser engines also provide this functionality (see here: http://www.simevidas.com/2015/05/10/Blowing-up-pixel-art-on-the-Web.html).

                • hanging-punctuation

                  As defined by the spec, the `hanging-punctuation` property determines whether a punctuation mark, if one is present, hangs and may be placed outside the line box (or in the indent) at the start or at the end of a line of text.

                  For most developers, CSS-tricks provides a sufficient explanation of its benefits that are often long-desired with critical textual content: https://css-tricks.com/almanac/properties/h/hanging-punctuation/

                  • Support CSS Motion Path Module

                    Since SMIL will be deprecated in Blink and there is no intent to implement in MS Edge, we need to fill in the gaps and provide alternative ways to do with CSS what we could do in SMIL.

                    The CSS Motion Path spec is now a Level 1 module and is in W3C Working Draft status:: http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-motion-1-20150409/

                    Using the properties defined in this specification, we will be able to animate HTML and SVG elements along arbitrary paths, using nothing but good old CSS.

                    There is a bug report open to fixes in Blink, hopefully to make it to implementation this…

                      • Implement ::selection according to Pseudo Elements Level 4

                        ::selection has now been re-added to the spec: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-pseudo-4/#selectordef-selection

                        You should considering starting to work on updating the implementating in Edge according to that spec. There are many bugs in the current implementation - you can't, for instance, write :root::selection or html::selection, and body::selection only applies to direct descendants, text nodes placed directly into <body> without wrapping. In the spec, it says: "Authors wanting multiple selections styles should use ‘:root::selection’ for their document-wide selection style, since this will allow clean overriding in descendants. (‘::selection’ alone would apply to every element in the tree, overriding the more specific styles of any…

                                • Support `text-align: start` (& `end`) from CSS Text Module Level 3

                                  Add support for the `start` and `end` values of the `text-align` property, as specified in the CSS Text Module Level 3 spec ( http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-text-3/#text-align-property ).
                                  These are very useful when writing stylesheets that take RTL (right-to-left) languages into account for page layouts.
                                  The other major desktop browsers already support them: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/text-align#Browser_compatibility

                                  • Support calc() in Flexbox rules

                                    Please just axe IE and don't rebrand with the Spartan project. You're literally the worst browser in every conceivable test http://html5test.com http://css3test.com and yet you make fun of people who critique you instead of dumping resources into fixing your garbage browser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD9FAOPBiDk

                                    So happy Chrome is bashing you nowadays. You deserve it.

                                      • @document (css conditional rule)

                                        The @document rule has long been implemented in Firefox, but the W3C deferred further discussions about @document to CSS4, thus not carving anything out in stone - yet.

                                        Please make a push for getting the @document rule recognized and implmented in Edge, or something that works a similar way.

                                        Thank you!
