    • img decoding attribute

      https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/embedded-content.html#attr-img-decoding

      > Decoding of large images can block the main thread for hundreds of milliseconds or more, interrupting fluid animations and user interaction. Currently, there's no way for a web author to specify that they want an image to be decoded asynchronously, so there are scenarios where it is impossible to avoid UI stalls.

      Thus the new `decoding` attribute for the `img` element, with possible values:

      * `sync`: Indicates a preference to decode this image synchronously for atomic presentation with other content.

      * async: Indicates a preference to decode this image asynchronously to avoid delaying presentation of other content.

      *…

      • Proxy API support for extensions

        Proxy extensions such as SwitchyOmega needs Proxy API.
        It's not convenient to use IE proxy settings for more than one proxy server.
        We need proxy API. Chrome and Firefox have already support it many years ago.

        • Support bidi isolation for elements with dir attributes, and for bdi

          This is a specific request for Edge to support bidi isolation per the HTML specification where the dir attribute and the bdi element are used. The wording in the request for dir=auto [1] is equally valid here.

          Support for isolation is really a fundamental requirement for languages using Arabic and Hebrew and other scripts such as Thaana, Syriac, N'Ko, etc. Note also that the Arabic script is the second most widely used script around the world after the Latin script, so this affects a lot of people. And the lack of isolation is not an edge-case problem (see worked examples…

              • Add console.hex() to be able to log binary data to the console

                With binary data becoming more and more common in the browser, thanks to ArrayBuffers and TypedArrays and all the specifications that use them, we need to be able to properly log these data types to the console.

                On the surface this is possible with console.log(), but is that is severely lacking when it comes to binary data. So I would like to propose the ability to log binary data in the classic hex dump format. Having a console.hex() command in the browser would certainly my my life of lot easier and probably a lot of others that work with binary…

                • Implement "stroke-align:outset" - single and multiple outside strokes for text

                  We need outside strokes for text, because the current centered strokes are not pretty - the intrude the font fill.

                  An image illustrating how centered strokes aren't pretty / don't do what typically is intended (leaving the fill of the font unaffected):
                  https://twitter.com/TobiReif/status/942805851017969664

                  I hope you will implement stroke-align:outset.

                      • OffscreenCanvas

                        From MDN: The OffscreenCanvas interface provides a canvas that can be rendered off screen. It is available in both the window and worker contexts.

                        From me: It would be great to prepare images and run WebGL without tying up the UI thread.

                        • Asynchronous Clipboard API

                          The clipboard spec now has an asynchronous API [2] which is significantly more ergonomic than past clipboard APIs – it avoids various issues that the old document.execCommand("copy") approach had, and is much easier to use:

                          navigator.clipboard.writeText("hello world").then(...);

                          IE 9/10/11 shipped an unstandardized API for copying text or URLs to the clipboard. Edge shipped an older version of the draft standard clipboard/editing-spec-based-API [1], but it has numerous bugs and inconsistencies [2] that even *make it impossible to tell if the attempted copy action has succeeded*. Existing bugs aren't seeing attention, and it seems likely to me that there are more undiscovered…

                              In Edge, if I'm developing on a site, I'm usually using a specific port (this is how Visual Studio works with IIS and IIS Express).

                              If I need to reload a page without having it post back again, I can't use the refresh button, but need to select the address bar and press return again.

                              In most other browsers, this works. In Edge, it asks to install an app to cope with the protocol "localhost:"

                              Please, can we have an option to always show the protocol in the address bar. It would save me having to retype "http://"…

                              • ORTC/WebRTC: add VP8 RTP PictureID

                                Hello,
                                it seems that ORTC/WebRTC stack does not add VP8 RTP PictureID [1] which is needed by Switching Mixer Media Servers [2] to properly perform its rewriting when RTP flow switchings take place in order to avoid some issues in clients (eg: Chrome) that depend on it.

                                Could it be added as feature request?

                                Thanks in advance!!

                                  • A way of automatic installation of extensions

                                    All other major web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer) provide some way to install an add-on/extension by the application installer. Most antivirus programs and download managers make use of this capability.

                                    With Edge, the end user, after installing the main application, has to go to the Store and add the corresponding Edge extension manually herself.

                                    There should be way for the extension publisher to obtain Microsoft-signed extension package from the Developer Dashboard, and include it along with the main application installer, to be added later to users' systems by powershell's Add-AppxPackage, or its equivalent.

                                    • Implement externally_connectable from webpages to extensions

                                      Chrome enables webpages to send messages to cooperating extensions who allow this via the externally_connectable manifest property.

                                      This is better than hacks using content scripts because content scripts give the extension full access to the webpage. Chrome can present a much more palatable permission prompt as a result ("Communicate with cooperating websites" rather than "Read and change all your data")

                                      Firefox is tracking this feature here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1319168

                                      • Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer

                                        Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer.

                                        In Chrome and Firefox you can jump straight to a page with a URL Hashtag suffix.

                                        For example, to jump straight to page 9 of this Microsoft PDF, adding "#page=9" will take you directly there in Chrome/Firefox.

                                        http://abouttmc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Dynamics-365-for-Financials-Capabilities-Guide-TMC-2016-11.pdf#page=9

                                        However Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

                                        As a **developer**, I have pages coded to link to specific pages in PDFs that are up to 1,300 pages long... this is really frustrating for our end users.
