How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Downloads API support for extensions

Missing Downloads API support is not good. I wanted to port my extension but it relies on basic downloads API missing in Edge.

    Because EDGE does not support Downloads API, I have to install Chrome and Firefox, which I wish I didn't have to do.

    When will Microsoft support Downloads API for the EDGE extensions? Do you have plans to support this? And when is the expected date of support? Thanks!

    I have a security extension which uses this API and I cannot port it to edge. It would also be useful for the new security edge browser in a vm from Microsoft. Please add the API.

    Please add Downloads API. Without it Edge is not competitive to other browsers.
