How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Update CSS Grid

Update the IE implementation of Grid Layout to match the current spec. The current implementation from the IE 10 days is outdated.

        CSS Grid would be even more beneficial for your international customers. For instance, the grid would be immensely helpful for Japan's web development and other countries that usually write from top to bottom

        Ignoring this any longer will reduce the overall market share of Edge further.

        Please prioritize upgrading CSS grid to the latest specifications this year, so by 2018 all browsers are following the same standards. For website strategy and planning purposes, it would also be nice to know an approximate release date. Thanks.

        I happen to like MS Edge. I think it is a very good browser. But I also want it to stay up-to-date with the current specs. MS Edge will lose its edge if it starts to lag in standards.

        It seems that all other browsers are going to ship Grid Layout next spring (Firefox and Chrome are planning to ship it in March, and there are speculations that Safari would ship it nearly the same time). How great would it be if all 4 major browsers start support Grid Layout at once!

        Also it would be great if all browsers start support display:contents (https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/10938981-implement-the-box-generation-keywords-from-css-dis) along with Grid Layout. It makes Grid Layout applicable to much more use cases without need to make the markup less semantic. Firefox has already shipped it, Chrome is implementing it now and there are chances that it will ship it at the same time as Grid. Millions of web developers will be really happy if both features would become available in Edge at the same time!

        A standardised, strongly supported Flexbox and CSS grid are the two most important pieces needed in modern browsers for simple web design and layout.

        In a mixed environment (ms IE/Edge and firefox) lack of new GRID feature is likely to mean new webpages I develop will either not display or display poorly (using an alternate CSS file) in IE/Edge.

        Please continue with the great work of your initial grid layout to update the specs to latest recommendation.

        Grid is the layout solution we have been missing. Please keep up with the other browsers and offer the same level of control to designers and developers.

        Firefox and Chrome are both shipping this in the next few months, and developers are eager to jump on board. This should be top priority.

        You know Microsoft, you guys have done a more than phenomenal job with things like Visual Studio, VS Code, MS Office, and Windows 10. Please place more resources and focus on maintaining parity or even exceeding what Chrome and Firefox are doing and you will regain the love of many developers.

        Modern web development is moving away from frameworks for layout and bloated code. Grid Layout is a huge help for that. The Edge team has been doing a lot of great things, please make Grid and SubGrid a priority!
