How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

This includes Flash, HTML5, GIF, MP4, or any type of video that may be invented.

What would be ideal is to have a new set of controls in Internet Options that would allow the user to control/override the video controls in all web pages.

For example, HTML5 has the <video> ... </video> element that has certain attributes:
autobuffer
autoplay
controls
loop

The user should be able to control each these attributes on a global basis for all web pages. For example:

Control Panel
Internet Options
Advanced tab
Video options (new category)
autobuffer - yes or no (new option)
autoplay - yes or no (new option)
controls - yes or no (new option)
loop - yes or no (new option)
