object-fit and object-position
CSS properties that control the position and size of replaced content within the content box.
object-fit/object-position are now on the Microsoft Edge backlog with a priority of high (We intend to begin development soon). Status updates can be tracked at https://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/objectfitandobjectposition

Today I checked the change log of the latest Edge release. And I'm wondering if there's a point to this feedback process at all.
Explain to me why a highly experimental feature like WebVR that almost no developer will use or need right away has been released, whilst at least 10 fundamental web technologies in which you are directly lacking compared to other browsers, that have thousands of votes, are nowhere in sight?
I'm sure you have limited resources and cannot take on everything, which is exactly the point: pick the things that matter. The overwhelming feedback from developers is to fix the basics. Edge will never be taken seriously if it continues to be the browser in which nothing works.
I was hoping EDGE was going to redeem itself after IE. What a mistake that was all other browsers are compatible with object-fit what a big let down.

You see the anger in these comments? It's justified. Stop with stupid gimmicks of being able to write on a web page and make a functional browser so we can display our web page as intended like other real browsers. This is the very reason I never ever suggest using a MS browser of any kind. I go out of my way to note on my site to use any other browser than Edge or IE. If I detect a MS browser I provide links to Chrome. I hate MS browsers with the utmost passion and any project manager on the Edge team needs to be fired now. Balmer screwed up Windows 8. C'mon we don't need your browser. Stick with the OS and let us have other to chose from. I'm just digusted that this will never change with your web presence.
I've always wondered what it must feel like for a developer to work for Microsoft. Always behind. Always worst. People always angry at you because your product is so bad.
Once IE was a problem for web-developers for being always behind. Now we see Edge took the baton. Hope the developent really will begin soon
Yea. We need this.
I'm fed up of hacking IE all the time to get it to do what the other browsers do already!!
Just do it already! Ask every other browser vendor for help if you can't! How hard can it be!

We need this NOW Please!!
This kind of ignorance of a feature that every other browser has supported for years is the sort of thing that causes me -- a web dev who works on Microsoft sites -- to discourage use of Edge and IE wherever possible, as frequently as possible. Your development should be *highly* prioritizing the features that are in that situation, where Edge is the only odd-one-out, if you want devs to stop guiding people away from you.
Peter Parker commented
Wanted to use this feature.
Microsoft says no.
I say no to Microsoft hacks.
I cry at night.
There are other ways of achieving the desired behavior of object-fit, but they're not as effective, and certainly not as simple.
as a member of the UI/Front End Dev community, we strive for cross browser consistency, there s a reason that almost every other browser has support for this: Chrome, FireFox, Safari, Opera, iOS Safari, Opera Mini, Android Browsers, and Chrome for Android. Not sure why IE 11 and Edge does not.
I would love to see this priority elevated
Martin Kadlec commented
Please increase the priority of this as much as possible.
Bart van der Schoor commented
The comments here are worse then a YouTube comment section :(
Still we'd very much like this feature :)
It, again, is like in the old IE times. Microsoft is a ridiculous bunch of idiots that can't compete with the browser industry. They are unable to implement living standards. They are not willed to provide a good working product.
FFS, even the second worst browser - Opera Mini - can handle this!
Come on Microsoft if you want more people to use Edge you have to following the W3C standard. We web developers do not want to waste our time to do workaround or hack just for your browser, we just simply suggest our users to use chrome/firefox.
Please do it ASAP. Thank you.

Dear Microsoft. Please stop developing web browser. You just cant do it. Im sorry to say that but it's just so. Develope something else but not web browser. Frontend developers really really REALLY hate you. This is not about not supporting object-fit, this is about you just cant support any USEFUL property in a web browser. (Remember PNG fix or border-radius in IE6?) Please just stop, leave it to Mozilla and save us from greatest headache of all times. Thanx.
Edge is like IE. Same **** and that will not change as long those devs keep their arrogance. As a developer it's for more than a decade a pain in my *** to adjust coding and hacking specific for IE and Edge cause those browsers are not doing what they should be doing and that is: execute what we coded. And this object-fit is another example why there are incompetent devs are working over there simply doing nothing. Just-implement-this. Pooping takes longer. I gave MS the chance with the new Edge and I hoped for real that this browser would actually execute what I coded but no... same arrogant **** as in IE. simply un-be-liev-able and a missed chance to gain respect again. So to keep it short: get out of the toilet and implement this. ThnQ
