Support the searchParams property of URL objects
Add support for the URLSearchParams interface (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/URLSearchParams) and the corresponding searchParams property of URL objects (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/URL/searchParams)
searchParams is included in EdgeHTML 17 released today (30/04/2018)
I don't think why Microsoft kills its own browser by delaying everything that Mozilla and Google do quickly. do Microsoft CEO thinks it is a better strategy, After bill gates Microsoft dying a slow death.
Why EDGE is last in releasing anything to web. I personnaly liked EDGE when it was launched ,but again it started doing same as IE
According to https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/8993198/, this has been implemented and will be available in next release of Windows Insider update.

I second what Jake said. I know of (and have worked on) several, widely-used libraries that assume support for URLSearchParams.
These would likely break if Edge shipped Service Worker without this.

This would be useful, if nothing else to standardise this extremely useful API across browsers..
This was assigned to someone on [October 2016] but it still isn't implemented. It's kind of sad that its 2017 and we still don't have native url parameter parsing...one of the most basic features of the web.

This may become a prerequisite for service workers. They're really useful there, and it wouldn't surprise me if it was used in the wild.
Would be very useful, helps preventing reinventing the wheel
