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 The current implementation from the IE 10 days is outdated.

        Oh my God, why you people of Microsoft always go ten steps behind the other browsers?

        Please implement this feature to your outdated browsers.

        Finally, at last! It's really been forever, way too long for the guys who actually launched CSS grids first, and for something with "high priority on the backlog" since September 2015. But nice to see things moving.

        By the way, it's "excited", not "exited"

        Hi @Anonymous. This will not be coming to IE11 as that is in maintenance mode, primarily for enterprise customers who rely on ActiveX and other legacy technology for their internal Line of Business apps.

        For many of the most common use cases, such as 2/3 column page layout with header/footer, you can use the old -ms- syntax for IE10 and 11. Generally if you you have a known amount of elements on the page using Grid, then the old syntax will work. Other more complex layouts can be achieved combining Grid with Flexbox children.

        Any chance of getting this into IE11 as well, given that it is still the most widely used Microsoft browser?

        Great to see it's finally in development! This is a much-needed update, especially that most of the other browsers just shipped it in March.

        Is it done? That is very important. I am thinking on: How it is possible a Web Software Engineer forget this feature or push out. This is a dumb idea.

        Prioritize it higher! It's shipped in all major browsers except Edge now. Shocking that it's not in the Creators Update.

        Surprised it was not in the Creators update for Win10 - can you update us on the timeline? (Sep 2015 is like so year-b4-lastyear) :)
