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 The current implementation from the IE 10 days is outdated.

        Please support the latest spec in Edge! I want to use this in production ASAP! It's one of the best to come out in a very long time!

        Mmmmhhhhh, on second thoughts, I'm beginning to think this is never going to happen because MS wants to have full control over what happens in the browser via ASP.net code and C#.

        So perhaps it's time the community went ahead without them. Maybe ditch Windows altogether. It can happen because tech is at that point where it can be done.

        Please don't be the wet cake out on the field. Please get with the program and make your Grid available as soon as possible.
        This kind of holding out and trying to be different and obstructive is what will eventually destroy Microsoft.
        This kind of behaviour is exactly why Microsoft has been viewed as the enemy in the past. You have no idea just how much hate it created out there. Don't reinforce that view. You only have so many lives left before the big implosion will hit you down splat.

        You're the only browser that doesn't support grid. Please allow the Internet to move forward with the times rather than letting edge fall into the same cycle of uselessness holding back the Internet that IE caused.

        Please, please update to the latest specs. Developers are so excited to use Grid, the biggest css feature to ship in ages, but many can't until it is supported in your browser.

        "On the backlog" and (as stated on the Platform Status site) "under consideration", is too unclear and unfair to developers.

        The current Chrome and Firefox now support the W3 standard CSS Grids unprefixed and unflagged.

        This is great!

        MS Edge 15 should follow, preferrably before Safari does

        If a browser vendor decides to implement a prefixed version of an in-progress specification then they have an implicit responsibility to keep up to date with future changes to it, not leave it to rot as Microsoft have chosen to do with Grid. The longer that obsolete versions of any feature are left in place, the more content that will be authored depending on them, the more work developers need to do to support multiple versions, and the more technical debt the web as a whole will accrue.

        It's especially sad considering that Grid is a specification originated and authored by Microsoft themselves. Their abject refusal to implement their own specs in a timely fashion, even when they know *all* other browsers are making an effort to do so, is pretty damning. As is their refusal to even provide an update to the community on why there has been no progress on this issue in three years.

        For all the improvement that Microsoft has made in regards to web compatibility, their actions and attitude towards Grid shows they still have a lot to improve.

        This really needs to be moved off the backlog and into active development. Everyone else has it, and I hope you guys do too.

        Everyone else is doing it. Please don't make this another everywhere-but-IE feature like so many times in the past.
