  1. Implement Web Share API

    Web Share API landed on Chrome for Android in version 61. It's a neat way of providing native sharing hooks to a web app.

    • Link my microsoft account to the Edge not to the Windows OS

      I want to use Edge but I can't because I can't link my personal account to my Windows OS because Organization settings. And how I going to use Edge without sync my bookmarks?
      I think we should be able to sync in Edge some how that this cannot happen.
      I understand that the Organization rules need to be keep for security reasons but my bookmarks wont hurt any body I think.

        • ORTC/WebRTC: add VP8 RTP PictureID

          Hello,
          it seems that ORTC/WebRTC stack does not add VP8 RTP PictureID [1] which is needed by Switching Mixer Media Servers [2] to properly perform its rewriting when RTP flow switchings take place in order to avoid some issues in clients (eg: Chrome) that depend on it.

          Could it be added as feature request?

          Thanks in advance!!

          • Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer

            Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer.

            In Chrome and Firefox you can jump straight to a page with a URL Hashtag suffix.

            For example, to jump straight to page 9 of this Microsoft PDF, adding "#page=9" will take you directly there in Chrome/Firefox.

            http://abouttmc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Dynamics-365-for-Financials-Capabilities-Guide-TMC-2016-11.pdf#page=9

            However Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

            As a **developer**, I have pages coded to link to specific pages in PDFs that are up to 1,300 pages long... this is really frustrating for our end users.

            • Arabic text in alert() should appear in RTL by default

              When using an alert()-statement in which arabic text is included (like alert("דךגלכחדךלגיכלגדיכ\nלחידליגדלכדגכ\nלחידלגיכ");
              ) , the alignment of the message will appear in Left-To-Right (LTR), unless you specify the direction in the html-attribute. Chrome detects automatically, that these characters need RTL-direction and shows them accordingly in RTL directly.

                          Persian-based Urdu keyboard. While Urdu and Persian and Arabic share 95% the same letters, Urdu layout is completely different from Arabic and Persian, and very confusing for the millions of people who know both Urdu AND Arabic or Persian.

                          • GPS override in F12 should support geo-location of an actual address

                            The GPS override in F12 requires GPS coordinates which are a nuisance to look up. There should be an edit control that uses the Bing Maps APIs to map any address or valid location name to GPS coordinates that get used. This way someone could enter an address such as "One Microsoft Way, 98052" and have this work.

                            • User agent selection in F12 should be improved

                              The F12 tools should improve how the user-agent override is exposed in two ways.

                              For Custom, the edit control is too tiny. It should be a large, even multi-line control with wrap. The existing control is too small to see any reasonable user-agent.

                              For all other selections, F12 doesn't display the value used. My suggestion is to all use the same multi-line control suggested above but that the control is read-only when any value other than custom is selected. Make sure that it is read-only but not disabled so that users can select and copy the value that will be…

                              • Dynamic CSS transform animations janky on mousemove event

                                Currently, Edge will prioritize user events for responsiveness/performance. https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2017/06/01/input-responsiveness-event-loop-microsoft-edge/#BmaPczGdg4dDGHDA.97

                                It would appear that this causing issues when trying to update layout/rendering on a mousemove/pointermove event.

                                The result is janky animations. Check out the plunk in Edge and Chrome.

                                https://plnkr.co/edit/eCDkPjvEKWTpMirkXgV8?p=preview

                                Chrome is very smooth, whereas Edge/IE11/FireFox stutter on the mousemove event.

                                    Add an API to modify tabs (i.e. the tabs-header) via an edge extension.

                                    • Update Microsoft Edge WebDriver to support the latest W3C CR protocol

                                      Edge currently supports the JSON wire protocol. But it needs to support both that and the latest W3C protocol now that the W3C spec is a Candidate Recommendation.

                                      • delete profile picture in Edge browser

                                        Microsoft Edge saves even my old and deleted profile picture and shows it everytime I open the starting page even though I do not want it

                                        • Junction shadows with SVG <radialGradient> and <rect>

                                          Please make <radialGradient>s behave like Webkit browsers!
