  1. Add VTTCue and WebVTT support

    WebVTT: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WebVTT_API
    VTTCue: https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/#the-vttcue-interface
    Supported by all other browser vendors in Chrome, FF, Safari.
    Also implement ::CUE pseudo-element to enable support in CVAA.
    Currently all player developers need to create their own subtitles/captions implementations due to browser having fragmented support in all of the above which makes supporting accessibility very hard and cumbersome.
    Having you support this will ensure better interoperability.
    Please consider migrating the solution to IE11 as well as you still have it on platforms which are widely supported and EOL is not near as it seems.

      • Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed

        Often when a page loads, loading indicator disappears very quickly, and I don't have visual feedback that somethings are being processed in background, I just get an empty page, and when I start to think that the link is dead or something else went wrong, page suddenly appears.

        Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed

          If I open the file upload window without specifying the accept attribute, it will accept all files.
          However, an option list is created so that you can select another type.

          • Get Browser History

            How on earth do I go about getting Microsoft Edge's browser history programatically?

            I don't care what language we use I just need a starting point. Every modern day browser has a database file that can be read.

              • 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.

                  • Support for Facebook

                    As of 21 october 2017. Edge still hangs on FB on direct messages.
                    This bug existed since 2015, and were never fixed.
                    Edge needs to be closed and restarted. Then its 50% chance its Facebook compatible. Perssonal messages on requires 2-3 restarts to work. Even more if you don't copy text before closing.

                      • landmark navigation

                        I would like to see a feature for navigating to "landmark regions" using the keyboard. Very similar to the way the F6 key works in the Windows Explorer (try it! :)

                        Landmark regions can be defined by the page author by either using ARIA landmark roles (http://w3c.github.io/aria/aria/aria.html#landmark_roles), or HTML5 elements that default to having landmark roles (see summary, below, for a list of these elements).
                        Note that the generic landmark role="region" - and its corresponding html "section" element - must have a label before it is considered a true landmark, whereas nav, aside, etc do not technically require…

                        • Implement overlay scroll bar (ms-overflow-style)

                          When switching between `overflow: scroll` and `overflow: hidden`, the <body> padding changed.
                          It is annoying, overlay scroll bar can avoid hack.

                          I can use overlay scroll bar at IE (CSS), Chrome (flag), Firefox (add-on),
                          Edge should also.

                            A case sensitive search ("Match Case") for the "Find on page" tool is missing in Edge mobile. Would be great to have this feature available (similar to the one in Edge for desktop PCs).

                            • Fix Insufficient colour contrast of select box items in Windows 10

                              go to any website with a select box in IE11 or Edge on Windows 10

                              Click/tab to expand for options

                              The selected/active element has white text and light blue background, that has a contrast ratio of 2.9:1. That makes it inaccessible.

                              Resolution: Provide a darker background with higher contrast ratio

                                Edge is a really good browser, but it's often slow in opening pages that open in Chrome quickly.

                                  • Multiple Tab Selection

                                    Would it be possible to implement the simultaneous selection of multiple consecutive tabs using the Shift or Ctrl Keys? I find it useful whenever I want to handle a selection of tabs at once - whether to move them to a different window/screen or delete them via Ctrl+W.

                                    In short, "it'd be cool if" we could hold Ctrl and left-click to add particular tabs to the selection AND/OR left-click on one tab, then Shift+LClick on another tab to add the two (AND any tab located between them) to the selection

                                      • Add more languages content. I need Romanian language.

                                        I really want to use this browser, but I need my language content - Romanian.
                                        Bing engine displays more foreign content and that doesn't help me.

                                        • Edge mobile scroll bar is invisible on white / light background

                                          The Edge mobile scrollbar default colour is white

                                          If the page has a white background the scrollbar is invisible because it blends into the background

                                          If the page has a black background, you can see the scroll bar normally

                                          Please update edge so if the page background is white, the scroll bar is a different colour so it is visible and the contrast is ok.
                                          This should be done automatically for any page we visit
