Steps to reproduce

The content of HTML input fields of type “date” cannot be cleared in Microsoft Edge - regardless of the “required” attribute.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create an HTML file with the following content using a text/html editor of your choice and save it:

<input type="date" />

  1. Open the HTML file created in step 1 with Microsoft Edge.

  2. Select any date of your choice in the date input field unsing the date picker.

  3. Try to clear the date selected in step 3 - there is no way to do so.

From my point of view, this issue is considered to be fixed as soon as there is a way to clear the content if date input fields in Microsoft Edge.
