Server-Sent Events (EventSource)
Enables push notifications from the server received as DOM events.
I don't know whether I should throw "old folks" using IE11 and Edge under the bus or HTTP/2 since my application requires bi-directional communication!
Great work Microsoft - when you are not committed to building a good browser, please don't ship one and lead "windows people" astray!
LOL - Still no SSE support in Edge? Sad!

Please build this feature ASAP

@ThomasMalkewitz Of course, they haven’t expressed any interest yet.

well, as of the latest insider build on 2018-10-05, still not working :(
I installed windows 10 on mac. Enjoyed edge browser for 2 days. Then I found out that it don't support SSE which one of site which I used vastly needs. So I need to install chorme now which I did not want earlier. Please update edge and support SSE asap so we can use edge as primary browser.
MS, can u at least update your comments regarding this or is it still under review from 2015 ??

No server side events yet? What's wrong with you Microsoft?

It's been 4 years guys. Every other major browsers have already supported this.
Please add this asap!!! We need it.
If you don't have the resources to develop a browser then don't !
Stop forcing people to use a car without ABS/ ESP and other crucial systems supported by other vendors
Why are people even using your browsers at this point is beyond me. You are literally holding back and sabotaging the web by being the only browser with a closed source engine so that we can't fix your missing features and you don't develop it yourselves making the web miss many important features. This is just sad.
Microsoft why haven't you implemented Server Sent Events ? You might wonder why to implement it when Websockets is already supported , Well its about to be efficient, one way communication needs less power and Devices will not run out of batteries.
Besides it is an HTML5 standar from years !
It's a HTML5 standard from years. How it could be not implemented?
If you are not in the mood to implement this feature, please use some good polyfill at least.
Can we get an update on this, or at least the links fixed?
How are we supposed to have nice looking and responsive web-applications with realtime dashboards and feeds ON HTTP/2 without proper support for SSE?
i know the workarounds and fallbacks, but they just put unnecessery stress on our bandwith and batteries.
And did i mention a decrease of productive development time, by maintaining workarounds and hacks

Oh good grief Microsoft, give me a break. Pushing edge down our mouths in all the windows updates. Then this! Why for the love of God do you guys not have SSE? FFS! We have to tell all our customers to log into our web app with anything else. So broken.
