CSS Box Alignment is now on the Microsoft Edge backlog. You can track the status at https://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/boxalignment/
Broader OGG support is now in development: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/oggcontainer/
Wow, really good news! Looking forward to.
This ticket is about Ogg Vorbis and (Ogg) Opus. It means that support of the Ogg container is mandatory. Support of this container requires just a small amount of code. It worth almost nothing to support it. Just please!
Thomas Ruecker, I'm the author of this ticket and I meant support of the Ogg Vorbis and Opus in the <audio> tag. It is absolutely useless for a general web-developer when it is supported only for WebRTC connections.
Are you planning to support Opus in the <audio> tag? This format is very useful in many cases.

As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.

Thanks for the suggestion.
The biggest overhaul to the Console’s innards in more than 30 years is currently underway. UTF-8 support is something that we are and will be working on in order to support a much broader set of scenarios, platforms, clients and tools.
Just one example of the level of improvements being made include all the Virtual Terminal sequence support added to the Console during Win10AU to support many *NIX tools, along with the new 24-bit color support we released in today’s Insiders build #14931.
Stay tuned for lots more improvements coming in future insiders and major releases.
It would be nice to have an ability to use UTF-8 for all Win32 API functions. It will really make things much easier and better.
Marat Tanalin, it's OK to use it on web pages for small animations. Edge doesn't support it, but it is not a problem. Edge users will see just a static image.
Chrome 59+, Safari 8+ and Firefox 3+ support APNG. When Edge will support it?
Chromium developers are implementing APNG support:
APNG support for Chromium: https://codereview.chromium.org/1250373006/
There are only ≈500 additional lines of code.
I've created similar ticket in the Chromium bugtracker:
The main advantage of the arithmetic coded JPEGs over other new formats is that you can recompress all your JPEGs losslessly. And often it reduces the size of an image for even more than 10%.

It’s on the backlog, but not currently planned.
We know many of you would like to be able to accelerate your numerical analysis code via CUDA/OpenCL, etc.
One thing to explore in the meantime is to try running your code in Windows. Windows actually has very powerful GPU-acceleration capabilities and you may well find that much of your existing code may well work already or require trivial effort to port to Windows itself.
in the meantime, bear with us, and UPVOTE THIS ISSUE if you care (please don’t create another duplicate ask – that doesn’t help us prioritize asks).

Changing to “Fine Feedback” – thanks for additional input. Vote away! ;)

Yep, this would be really cool. Not just for URLs, but things like paths too. Script emits a path to an error log? Just ctrl+click it to open!
I can see some trickery around the parsing (performance impacts? security? and of course the parsing itself…) and the launching of another app (security again?). But it would be awesome.
It’s on our backlog for sure.
WebM is in development – http://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/webmcontainer/
Also it would be nice if IE will support Ogg Vorbis and Opus audio formats. They are a part of WebM and are used for audio. http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-internet-explorer-platform/suggestions/6513488-ogg-vorbis-and-opus-audio-formats-support-firefox
Unfortunately JPEG-XR doesn't support animated images. If WebP is too hard to implement maybe it is possible to implement at least support of APNG? Safari 8 and Firefox support it. http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-internet-explorer-platform/suggestions/6513393-apng-animated-png-images-support-firefox-and-sa
