        hi,
        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!

      • Agraj commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!

        Have the server send and write useless programs by polling. Key features in Web applications.

        These big doors called SSE need to be open quickly, there is not much to consider. SignalR is a workaround but still just a workaround to functionality that competition already have.

        Pretty surprised that Microsoft Edge still does not support SSE. :/ Any updates on when this is going to roll out?

      • Alex commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This would be hugely useful. Supported by all other browsers!

        SSE is a really nice technology that all modern browsers should support! I expect the promising Microsoft Edge to support SSE and give developers the chance to build cross-browser real-time web apps.

        Hello, I just realize that even Edge does not support server-sent events, which is a very useful feature of standard HTML5, I find that unbelievable in 2015 !
        Come on Microsoft guys ! Implement it now ! At least in Edge ! (IE 11 also ?)
        At this time we tell ALL our customers to switch either to Firefox or to Chrome in order to have a modern UI ... What a pity, that's part of what should be the standard ! Stop being behind the competition !

        SSE should be implemented in Microsoft Edge, it is a nice functionality very useful for business. In my current project we make use of it, and should be nice to add IE to our supported Browsers.
