How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Support a[download] attribute for data URIs

The download attribute doesn't appear to be used when downloading a hyperlink containing an href like the following:

<a id="a" href="blob:E0F5CA16-F4AA-4B18-9A07-BFDD1F0633BD" type="text/plain" download="test.txt">Download</a>

$('#a').attr('href', URL.createObjectURL(new Blob([data])));

Instead, the downloaded file gets the filename "E0F5CA16-F4AA-4B18-9A07-BFDD1F0633BD".
