How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Support Screen Capture per W3C Specification

The Screen Capture (or screen share) specification [1] allows websites to obtain a MediaStream of the user's screen, given permission from the user.

Firefox has implemented the feature per specification (no longer requiring a whitelist [2]), while Chrome only allows the feature when initiated from an extension.

[1] Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/screen-capture/

[2] Firefox re:whitelisting: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Screensharing

        I made a sample page of Edge’s Screen Capture API and tried it, but in my environment a MediaStreamError (abort) error occurs.
        It is said that it worked in friends’ environment when friends tried it.
        How can I solve this problem?

        navigator.getDisplayMedia now seems to be available in Microsoft Edge with Experimental Javascript Support enabled in about:flags.

        Why it this idea was posted only few month ago and there is NOTHING that Google (and Bing actually) can find about screensharing in Edge. Chrome has it for ages. Definitely a must have.
