        Why can't microsoft just use the chromium embedded framework? In the past seven year, microsoft went from 7 years behind all the other browsers to now just 4. Not much progress....

        I am eagerly waiting for this functionality - MS confirmed on 10 May 2017 that they are working on this but its end of July now and no good news yet.

        Bring it on! Great to see standards being implemented. However without IE11 supporting this, we won't be able to use this on commercial websites any time soon.

        I'm as dumbfounded as everyone else. How can Edge even ship without standard elements like this?

        Evaluating Edge for enterprise use. Looking good so far, except for this, which interferes with one of our core intranet tools. Seems simple to add this standards-compliant functionality. Is there a roadmap date? Thanks

        What more can I add on march 2017 what not already has been said? Every browser supports this except Edge, so????

        This seems like a no-brainer -- using the HTML5 spec for a collapsable/expandable web component would save devs lots of time -- hide/show is a basic web mechanism that shouldnt require any fancy footwork.

        Please escalate to a priority of high. HTML5 is basic to the web. Adding support of HTML5 elements allows developers to use the latest and greatest HTML code. We don't want to use shims and polyfills simply to enable expandable/collapsible content. Looking forward to this fix.

        Microsoft Edge is on the edge of failure by implementing useless **** instead of the things we need, such as this.

        Is Edge browser going the same way as IE and not getting features until a while after every other browser includes it. Even Kindle Browser has details/summary tags incxluded.

        C'mon MS, the browser war is finished... Please add details/summary elements to Edge!

        This is a ubiquitously-used functionality. To achieve it without scripts or fanciful CSS should not be delayed. Please.

        Firefox is adding support in v49, leaving Microsoft browsers the only one with no support. Hurry up.
