Server-Sent Events (EventSource)
Enables push notifications from the server received as DOM events.

I was shocked to find this WASN'T supported by Edge. Please do add it - soon!
Tobi Reif commented
Please add support, edge is the only browser left.
Алексей Мичник commented
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.

Agree with James.
We are compelled to mention the non-compatibility with edge/IE and the users (and devs) move to Chrome/FF
James Hancock commented
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?
Lars Kemmann commented
Agreed, this needs to at least be on the backlog and not just "under review".
any chance you can at least update the Road Map priority on https://developer.microsoft.com to have a rough idea on whether this is coming or not?
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.
it is really important for so many developers. please support sse.

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
please support SSE!
Please support SSE! For the love of God!
Any news? It would be really kind. Thank you.
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!
