Microsoft Edge Developer

Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

A note from our lawyers: Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the Terms of Service for more information.

  4. CSS attr() as defined in CSS Values Level 3

    Allows attr() to be used in any CSS rule (not just generated content), any CSS property (not just content) and for various data types.

    Spec: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#attr-notation

    This will revolutionize what we can do with CSS and enable a kind of decoupling between content and styling that has never been possible before.

  5. Implement CSS `display: flow-root` (modern clearfix)

    `display: flow-root` is a modern way to force a block to be a formatting context that floated elements are contained in (aka clearfix).

    From the spec [1]:

    > The element generates a block container box, and lays out its contents using flow layout. It always establishes a new block formatting context for its contents.

    Tab Atkins and Elika Etemad (fantasai) from CSSWG consider the feature stable enough to be implemented [2].

  7. headless browser for testing

    It would be great if IE could be started as a headless browser (like PhantomJS) for running unit tests, taking screenshots, measuring load time, etc without having a browser window pop up. Running automated tests on IE often fails because the browser either fails to start up or shut down properly. With a headless browser multiple browser instances can be run in parallel without taking up screen space.

  12. :has()

    https://drafts.csswg.org/selectors/#relational

    The relational pseudo-class, ‘:has()#’, is a functional pseudo-class taking a relative selector list as an argument. It represents an element if any of the relative selectors, when absolutized and evaluated with the element as the :scope elements, would match at least one element.

  18. Add support for the arithmetic coded JPEG, which saves 10% of file size losslessly

    As arithmetic coding patents for JPEG have now expired, it would be nice to support arithmetic coding in the JPEG. It will allow recompress existing JPEG files using arithmetic coding losslessly, as the result size of all JPEG files will be reduced by 10%.

    Web Speech is on the backlog with a priority of Medium. You can track status changes at https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/webspeechapiinput

    We are currently investigating Web Speech along with script-based accessibility as part of our longer term accessibility investments. This joins our wider ranging accessibility investments detailed in our Microsoft Edge for Developers blog post: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2016/02/03/2016-platform-priorities/

  20. CSS "Will Change"

    Adds a will-change CSS property, that can be used to signal that a particular property is likely to be changed in the future, or that an element's content is likely to change.

    Proposal: http://tabatkins.github.io/specs/css-will-change/
