Chakra documentation is joining MDN web docs

By / Dev Writer, Microsoft Edge

Last fall, along with other browser vendors and web platform stakeholders, the Edge platform (EdgeHTML) team adopted MDN web docs as our official web API reference library. In the process, we redirected over 7700 MSDN pages for HTML, CSS, SVG and DOM APIs to corresponding reference content on MDN and joined the community in helping maintain it, including making over 5000 edits to the browser compatibility tables to reflect the latest Edge API surface

Today the Microsoft Edge JavaScript engine, Chakra, joins the community-wide effort to make MDN web docs the web’s one-stop, premiere development reference, starting by redirecting all 500+ pages of Microsoft’s JavaScript API reference from docs.microsoft.com to their MDN counterparts and porting our legacy JS extensions reference for historical and servicing purposes.

We want to thank our community for enthusiastically embracing MDN web docs, and special kudos to everyone who helps to improve the docs, edit by edit. In the previous year alone, you helped the MDN web docs community grow monthly users by over 50%! Let’s keep documenting the web forward together.

– Erika Doyle Navara, MDN Product Advisory Board representative for Microsoft Edge
