    • As far as I know/see is, that “animation/transform” is not yet implemented:

    • These samples use SMIL animations, which is a feature Edge doesn’t support. We have no plans to support this animation technology and Chrome plans to deprecate SMIL as well.

    • According to mozilla docs + the chromium team themselves, "the Chrome developers have since suspended that deprecation". [1]

      You can read further into the google groups discussion [2] which also provides more context.

      The SMIL language and syntax provides many benefits/functional features (as well as ease-of-use) that would otherwise require extensive javascript to execute.

      Is there a particular reason why the EDGE team would not implement such features that enhance fluidity in the web-browsing experience for all users?
