    • Imho, at least a background-color value of white or rgba(255, 255, 255, x) should be honoured, since it reduces the amount of ink wasted by printing the page and also allows the author to make text more readable (e.g. some text hovering above an image).

      Most of the other browsers I tested allow me to do at least that, Internet Explorer and Edge don’t.
