I suggest you ...

Office Add-ins should run in Edge, not IE11

At the moment Word runs Add-ins in IE11

IE11 doesnt support ES2016, and is therefore much harder to develop for than all of the other newer browsers (Safari, Chrome, Edge).

    Hi Fergus, thank you for your input, it is greatly appreciated. We’ve added this to our backlog as something we want to implement. There are many items on the backlog, so we can’t set an exact estimated time for this, but we’ll keep you posted with status updates.

    Thanks!

        Versions of webpack-dev-server after 2.7.1 don't support IE11, so switching from IE11 to Edge will help developers using common build tools like @angular/cli. Please prioritize this!

        Thats great! If I could just add an extra suggestion for awesomeness: make sure that edge's "developer tools/js debugger" is available when running add-ins in Word
