This issue is my biggest pet peeve right now. In this last year, I've finally seen the Edge team commit and pick up a lot of important issues that consist of core new web technologies with many votes. So the direction and focus overall seems positive.
The tediously slow release cycle completely evaporates this positive movement. Major releases containing these essential web tech updates are a 6 month wait, and then we still can't use the tech because we rely on customers doing these huge updates. What does that make it? A 9-12 month wait to use a feature?
Aren't you embarrassed that your very own invention "CSS grids" is launched almost together by all major browsers except Edge?
You're building the right features. Finally. But it's no use if you don't release them. Release them as early as you can, and stop the Windows update dependency. Speed up!
I've been very excited about the next major release but it's taking so long that it's like waiting for baby to be born.
