    • Native Smart App Banner

      Both iOS (https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/AppleApplications/Reference/SafariWebContent/PromotingAppswithAppBanners/PromotingAppswithAppBanners.html) and Android (https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/03/increasing-engagement-with-app-install-banners-in-chrome-for-android) have a native smart app banner in some form. I get a lot of questions of customers if we can implement this on their websites and at this point we need to resort to javascript solutions. These solutions are producing a lot of false positives (my Lumia 950XL is being considered an Android device), need constant maintenance to keep up with new and updated browsers and inject html into my page.

      It would be really nice if Edge could implement a native app banner. It appears to have been included…

      • Tablet mode split view should use browser width as default and not scale

        Currently when edge is open in split view with another app in tablet mode the content is scaled and ignores CSS breakpoints. I know this is by design and you can disable it, but not all websites will.

        For compatibility with most sites the default should be changed to not scale and instead use CSS breakpoints to make the website responsive.

        • Expose EdgeHTML C++ API

          Traditionally, MSHTML (a.k.a. Trident) could be used to parse and process HTML, making applications such as pulling, sorting, de-duplicating news feeds possible. It would be great to be able to use the new HTML5-compatible EdgeHTML engine for this purpose.

              Just like .html, .txt and some media files like .pdf receive special attention, so should .md files.

              • Enterprise mode management to GPO templates

                Will there be any improvements in managing Enterprise mode in IE11 and Edge via GPO templates, like the "sites to zones" - managing is done today?

                Using xml files and keeping them behind http servers is a joke in a long term. We are really waiting for more dynamic approach of this management. Similar to site to zone options in GPO.

                • Unable to attach files for web outlook in Edge Browser. Kindly apply this feature

                  I have been trying to attach files for web outlook in Edge Browser but did not happen. I kindly suggest you to try to improve this feature as other browsers do not have this problem. As of now, I could see the issue with WEB OUTLOOK only.

                  • Let Edge resize to 320px wide while debugging from VS

                    I'm currently forced to use IE 11 to debug on Win10 because of a few issues with using Edge via Visual Studio 2015. This is one of them.

                    The browser lets you resize to 320px when launched on its own, but if it's launched for debugging from VS, it will only go to 500px. I've already reported this via Jacob, but figured it wouldn't hurt to track here.

                    This is important because my daily workflow involves testing our mobile experience, and my preferred development experience is using VS's debugger (both client JS and server side) and its DOM explorer.

                      • XSLT Processing Instruction does not work

                        Its a bug, I tried through the connect page. But this page is not working so I'm reporting it here.

                        The XSLT Command "processing-instruction()" command is not working or at least, is not working like in all other major browsers.

                        You can reproduce it with this JSFiddle https://jsfiddle.net/ntd8efj3/2/
                        You find a description on the Fiddle it self.

                        • Support for Cookie max-age

                          All other browsers allow cookies to be specified with a max-age property that replaces the expires timestamp. This allows servers to have cookies that work regardless of the clock skew on an end users computer.

                          • Hook events in Microsoft Edge

                            In Internet Explorer, we used to hook events using SHDocVw.InternetExplorer class.

                            And we had MSHTML classes like IHTMLDocument2, IHTMLElementCollection to get the html, StyleSheets and javascript contents.

                            How can this be achieved for Edge?

                                I was sent to page to download IE 10 from one of your own searches, result - page does not exists. It is really dumb to have something in search and sent people there while you already kill resource. And message there is at least unapropriate, but get plus for sense of humor.

                                    • Allow accepting a blocked popup without needing a reload or re-post

                                      Currently, when IE 11 blocks a popup and you click on "Allow once" or "Allow always", IE will reload the page that contained the blocked popup. If that was a POSTed page, the browser asks if it may resubmit the posted data. There is currently no other way to allow a blocked popup to be shown.

                                      This is a problem because re-POSTing the page may produce side effects or is even prevented by the underlying web application.

                                      For example, when going through an electronic payment process (e.g., using www.eps.or.at), this often involves vital popups, and pages within the process…

                                      • native XSLT 2 support

                                        SVG, Atom, X3DOM, ePub3, polyglot XHTML5, .. all formats serving varied purposes can be obtained without learning multiple dialects like Elm, CoffeeScript, iojs.. With the growing preference for native mobile apps over web browsing, XSLT producing all of above is crucial. Irrespective of browser wars, now is the time for bringing first class support back to XML family. This will be useful for developers using webviewer XAML control (for example, in an ePub authoring app) also.
