Steps to reproduce

I am an engineer on Google Chrome currently working to get the autocapitalize attribute standardized:
https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/3273

The attribute is currently implemented in iOS Safari and Chrome for Android with incompatible implementations. Once the pull request is approved, Microsoft Edge should add support the attribute (at least basic support for the IDL interface, and ideally support for input methods that perform autocapitalization).

Note that this attribute is most useful on mobile, and Edge for iOS and Android are built on WebKit and Chromium respectively, so no work needs to be done there; but it might also be useful to implement the attribute e.g. for Windows devices with touch screen keyboards, and for voice input.
