        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 !

        Hello,
        If you are not in the mood to implement this feature, please use some good polyfill at least.

        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.

        Definite obstacle in moving current projects to full HTML5 standards.

        HTML5 standard and not implemented? Makes me wonder if there is some core technical problem in Edge that prevents implementation.

        SSE is ideal for 2-Factor Authentication with Authy to allow checking authentication status. It works great in all other browsers. Not supporting this just makes it tougher for developers.

        I really don't understand why this is still not supported? You are basically asking us to choose between not using SSE because Edge won't support it while every other modern browser does, or ask our users to not use Edge.
        I really want to give Edge a chance but I keep going back to Chrome every single time! Edge is just not good enough...

        Although at first I had a lot of sympathy for Edge, this is the reason why I will never ever recommend IE to anybody and be always against MS browsers.
        It's good that Chrome is the dominating browser because MS just can't deal with it and should die out Firefox and Chrome are enough one commercial and one opensource

        Well, I think you should implement this HTML5 standard by now.
        You are way behind Mozilla and Chrome, Edge!
        Isn't the aim of creating Edge is to replace Chrome?

        Please, what's happening here? Why is this feature not implemented yet on Edge?? Are we in the past?

      • Kristen Overmyer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If MS has the least bit of consideration for the developers endeavoring to use its tools, the absolute minimum they should do is provide a clear and timely answer as to whether or not they intend to support SSE in Edge and if so by when.
