      • Implement the infinite value of the resolution media feature

        When you're rendering to PDF, this is a vector format, so there's not actual limit on the resolution. The resolution media feature has been extended in media queries 4 to be able to express that.

        • Implement the color-gamut media feature from MQ4

          Implement the color-gamut media feature: it lets authors detect screens with broader than usual color gamut, like the newer macs and iphones.

          This is already supported in Chrome and Safari

              • GPS override in F12 should support geo-location of an actual address

                The GPS override in F12 requires GPS coordinates which are a nuisance to look up. There should be an edit control that uses the Bing Maps APIs to map any address or valid location name to GPS coordinates that get used. This way someone could enter an address such as "One Microsoft Way, 98052" and have this work.

                • Link my microsoft account to the Edge not to the Windows OS

                  I want to use Edge but I can't because I can't link my personal account to my Windows OS because Organization settings. And how I going to use Edge without sync my bookmarks?
                  I think we should be able to sync in Edge some how that this cannot happen.
                  I understand that the Organization rules need to be keep for security reasons but my bookmarks wont hurt any body I think.

                  Thanks.

                  • boomarks organization

                    The bookmarks managing section is really poor. Hard to organize. Cannot move, delete or edit multiple links at the same time.
                    Can we have a way of manipulating links and folders more like we do with files? Select multiple links at a time to be moved, sorted, etc.

                      • Element.scrollIntoViewIfNeeded()

                        Similar to Element.scrollIntoView() but only scrolls the page if it isn't already visible.

                        Implemented in Blink and Webkit (Chrome/Opera/Safari).

                          • I am switching back to Chrome or Opera because I cannot find extension such as StayFocusd is for Chrome or Leechblock is for Firefox

                            I overall like the improvements that come with Edge over the IE versions. I almost was going to stay with Edge, but didn't find that important extension that I need. Also, the option to disable Edge would be good in case I want to enable it in the future. Right now, I hate the process that I need to go thru to disable it. Way better if I could disable it as with Windows 7 had with IE.

                                  • MS Edge Extension with Native Messaging on Desktop PC - Run UWP App in Background / no UI

                                    We have a classic desktop application on Windows which needs to communicate with the web browsers. Therefore we created web browser extensions and use the native messaging technology to pass messages between the JavaScript on a web page and the native desktop application. This way of communication is currently supported in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. Now we want to perform the same task in Microsoft Edge. But unfortunately Microsoft Edge supports native messaging in a different way the other browsers do. In Chrome/Firefox/Opera simply a serialized JSON string can be passed to a native messaging host application via…
