    • Edge does not presently support the animation of SVG elements with CSS animations. A reduction of this issue can be seen here: As of August 15, 2016 Microsoft Edge only animates the HTML element.

    • "By design"? Really???
      It doesn’t suprise me that Edge has only about 5.5% of market share with that approach.

    • Why by design! that’s unreasonable!

    • An now?
      How should web developers work around this Bug?

      I am not only confused, i am mad as hell.
      This is just embarrassing
