Vote on features for Internet Explorer

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Oct 14, 2014 12:59 pm

Microsoft have created a site where you can vote for your most wanted Internet Explorer features. The IE team may use this feedback to consider which features to prioritise. I thought I'd point out features relevant to Construct 2 so you can add your votes if you want to see them supported.

Note you get 25 votes per account and you can use 1, 2 or 3 votes on each item. So you can add extra weight to your most preferred features.

My personal #1 request: Ogg Vorbis and Opus audio formats support - dual encoding is a big pain for everyone, and IE supporting Ogg Vorbis (or even Opus) would be a good step towards fixing that. Please add votes for this!

Other features relevant to C2:
Frequent updates development cycle
WebRTC support (for multiplayer to work in IE)
Web MIDI API (would enable a MIDI plugin in C2)
a[download] attribute (so 'invoke download' can work in IE)
Web Speech API (input) (for speech recognition to work in IE)
Web Speech API (synthesis) (for speech synthesis to work in IE)
Battery status API (so the Browser object's battery features work in IE)
Vibration API (so the Browser object's 'Vibrate' action can work in IE - useful for physical feedback on mobile)
WebGL 2.0 (enable some useful extra rendering features in WebGL mode)

Note some features like the Web Audio API are already stated as 'In development' on status.modern.ie. There's no need to vote on things listed there as already in development, hopefully they will turn up soon anyway.

Lol, I used my last single vote on stop development on IE - just for laughs.

But voted those above all up.

Voted up a bunch of stuff. Put in three votes each on ogg/opus support, and also...midi. :mrgreen:

What can I say...I'm a sucker for midi and I'd love to see all browsers implement it.

P.S. I notice the top request is to have IE auto-update. Of course, it would make all these new features alot more relevent if it didn't take another 5-6 years for people to upgrade...

So Multiplayer is still not supported in the latest IE? I thought it was not working because I used an old IE plugin in AMS. Hope this will be added soon.

I don't have a lot of faith in Microsoft, but I voted on these too.

    Thank you @ashley for your efforts at helping get Opus support in Internet Explorer! I voted for:

  • Ogg Vorbis and Opus audio formats support [Firefox and Chrome support it]
  • a[download] attribute
  • accessibility support of html5
  • Apply the standards for just one time in your life
  • APNG (animated PNG) images support [Firefox and Safari 8 support it]
  • Native WebM
  • Vibration API
  • Web MIDI API
  • webgl 2.0

    I'd love it if others here would vote for Opus support in Internet Explorer, and help spread the word via Facebook/Twitter/websites.
