        Why, why so many useful things are still under consideration? Hire more programmers, why wouldnt you, it might help to make Edge really modern and not to repeat fate of IE

        Why does it take so long to consider this feature as something valuable?
        3500+ votes aren't enough? Is there any blocking point somewhere?

        The polyfills aren't a viable solution. Please, implement this ASAP.

        This is required for HMR which is becoming a requirement for developers. By not having it you're driving devs to chrome which isn't a good thing.

        I wonder why it is still under consideration. Are you creating browser or tool to download and install browser?

        This is really taking a very long time to implement. I know it can be replaced with a polyfill in the meantime, but Edge is really the last of the modern browsers to not support EventSource.

        Seriously why microsoft is always behind in all of this. It is like it can never get along with rest of the bunch when it comes to browser!

        I hope you could support this feature. 中国人的看不下去了

        It is for reasons such as these, developers don't want to use IE/Edge. And at least as developers we need a reason and a deadline !!

        It is for decisions like this that I hope that someday we will not have ANY browser from Microsoft. Why all the other major browsers can support this wonderful feature while IE does not support it even in Edge 14?!

        If you're not going to implement this old, stable and simple W3C standard that's implemented natively in every other browser and is critical in providing simple real-time experiences - I suggest updating your slogan to make it clear how IE/MS Edge browsers are different:

        Microsoft Browsers - holding the web back since IE5!
