    Edge is currently the only browser that causes issues with everything, and this is just another. Please add this feature. It's been 3 years.

    This is a very needed feature to produce a lossless website. I can't stand bouncing back to my designers and having them have to add filters over images and loading those in IE and Edge specifically. I also refuse to throw a bunch of hacky css in there to make it work on your browsers. This is important for designers, developers and the users to have clean, lossless and modern web experiences. Please implement asap.

    You are holding us back and making us use nasty workarounds like transparent overlays that just don't work well with a variety of images. How hard is this really to implement? Get started.

    Please add this. As a web developer, there are basic features like background-blend-mode that are painfully missing from Edge. I'm sure you're busy people, but there needs to be more movement on improving Edge to catch up with the other browsers. Please work on this.

    April 2018. Coming up for 3 years after it went on the backlog.

    Please tell me that the front of the backlog is making Edge actually function properly?

    We expect internet explorer to be awful, but we actually held some hope for Edge because it was marketed as a strong competitor for Firefox and Chrome. Ha, I laugh in your face as I should have back then.

    Created a new Divi website and one of their features is to offer background blend (colour over image). It's an awesome feature and looks amazing on my site but unfortunately when you view the site in IE the colour is missing. Shame... I'll have to go fix the site with Photoshop images. Noticed this was first bought to your attention in September 2015, do you think you will ever look into this issue?

    Still nothing in 2018? I've said it before and I'll say it again, Microsoft Edge makes my life as a web developer ****, no wonder it's hardly used even though it's the default browser!

    February 2018 and STILL not supported by Edge.

    I don't understand why Microsoft even bother making a browser when it's miles behind even the likes of Safari.

    Please stop holding back the web development,as 20 if years of infamous IE were not enough!

    background-blend-mode is must have. I cannot believe that such a great feature is not supported from a new browser.
