    Since proposing Grid Layout to the CSS Working Group and shipping an experimental implementation in IE10, we have been heavily invested in advancing it through the standard process.

    Today we’re pleased to announce that work has begun on updating our implementation to the latest Candidate Recommendation spec. We’re excited about the level of developer and implementor interest in Grid Layout, and look forward to see how it will be used on the Web.

        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) :)

        Please do it. Otherwise we need to ship our products with the notice that you cant use any Microsoft browser. And we definitely can push our customers to others browsers.

        oh microsoft. Aren't you getting tired of always being the last? Always be that one annoying browser vendor that lags behind?

        You were first to start implementing it, so come on! I would be proud on you guys if you could finally...... step up your game. It's about time.

        Get CSS Grid in this. ASAP thanks

      • PatrickPatrick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        PLEASE UPDATE ASAP!!

        And please - upgrade IE11 and IE10 also. Or kill this **** browser! Many of user use this browser and no new technology can fully be used if web developers have to take care of these **** browsers.

        So PLEASE! Upgrade or shut them down. And please react faster on new technology!
