        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.

        PLEASE! Develop support for useful tags like <details>/<summary> and <menu>.

        Exactly what others said. Useful, low-hanging fruit, great to have in the most modern browser.

        this is a very useful feature for Medical search database results, in that when a long list of grouped results is being returned, you can hide the details and use the summary to display one element of the group to make scanning the list faster and easier, and not require javascript to do so.

        Always support latest standards, that why they are created! If other browsers support it, like Chroom and Opera, why not Edge and IE11?

        I imagine this would be fairly easy to implement and once done gives the web a ubiquitous and script free way to open close elements. Pretty please.
