Streams API

APIs for creating, composing, and consuming streams of data, that map efficiently to low-level I/O primitives, and allow easy composition with built-in backpressure and queuing.


We're shipping the Streams API features step-by-step. See the related entries with the "Streams API" prefix and the "Fetch API" prefix for information about each sub feature. Note that the Streams API implemented in IE is different from the WHATWG one. Edge is implementing the WHATWG one.
