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

Please make IE to support Server-Sent Events.
Aaron Shafovaloff commented
Dear IE team, thank you for the strides you have been making.
WebSockets are overkill in most cases. Please develop support for server-sent events. IE (and Opera Mini, if that even counts) is the only hold-out:
The world is doing de revolution with HTML5 but IE NOT.
You need run to make the best IE
I love IE, please support SSE!

Support Server-Sent Event already *********!
Off-topic: I hope Surface 2 RT can run Windows 10 universal apps or else... How come Surface 2 won't be upgraded to Windows 10? It's a fantastic tablet much better than the iPads and (buggy) Androids
IE is so behind other browsers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't move my app to IE until this is done.
This is a standard that has been in the pipeline since 2009. Given its simplicity and wide-spread adoption by other browsers I would define this as borderline inexcusable.

IE is the only browser that does not support event source: http://caniuse.com/#search=eventsource
The Server-Sent Events solution is lighter than Web Sockets and more proxy and Firewall friendly
A good article about it:

As I already have mentioned before via Tweeter, EventSource is much better to handle in a network environment, since as a sysadmin, proxy servers tend to blow up almost any websocket impl. Server Side Events then, using plain HTTP, looks like a good solution when considering signals from server to the user. The other signal we already have (and working for years), which is the protocol client request itself :)

ASP.net SignalR support this, but IE not.
