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.

  1. CSS Intrinsic Sizing

    Extends the CSS sizing properties with keywords that represent content-based "intrinsic" sizes and context-based "extrinsic" sizes, allowing CSS to more easily describe boxes that fit their content or fit into a particular layout context.

  2. Support browser_url_overrides to allow customized net tab page, etc. (since users can't set their own choice of new tab page...)

    Edge currently offers very few options for controlling the new tab experience, and the ones it does have are... not popular, judging by the Windows Insider feedback. Allowing extensions to override things like New Tab page would simultaneously address this concern and allow more Chrome extensions to be ported, making Edge a much nicer browser to use.

  6. Native messaging!

    Please implement Native messaging mechanism! Internet Banking users are used to sign their contracts via a smart card (which uses WinCrypt API). Nowadays, after deprecation of applets, there is no other way to access Windows API and use a smart card in order to make a trusted digital signature.

  8. Implement conic gradients from CSS Image Values Level 4

    Conic gradients [1] are useful for a number of effects on the Web that cannot be emulated in any other way (see [2]). They can be implemented in many graphics libraries today (e.g. Cairo) via mesh gradients. Please implement them.

  10. image-rendering: pixelated

    This declaration is used to preserve pixels when scaling up images (e.g. pixel art). IE provides this functionality via -ms-interpolation-mode: nearest-neighbor. The other browser engines also provide this functionality (see here: http://www.simevidas.com/2015/05/10/Blowing-up-pixel-art-on-the-Web.html).

  12. Support CSS Motion Path Module

    Since SMIL will be deprecated in Blink and there is no intent to implement in MS Edge, we need to fill in the gaps and provide alternative ways to do with CSS what we could do in SMIL.

    The CSS Motion Path spec is now a Level 1 module and is in W3C Working Draft status:: http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-motion-1-20150409/

    Using the properties defined in this specification, we will be able to animate HTML and SVG elements along arbitrary paths, using nothing but good old CSS.

    There is a bug report open to fixes in Blink, hopefully to make it to implementation this…

  13. W3C Manifest support

    Add support for the new W3C manifest specification for pinned apps as well as for Windows store applications.

    The spec allows for vendor extensions which can be used for things missing in the Level 1 of the spec. A lot of things have already been planned for Level 2 so it would be great if the MS team could participate in the discussions

  14. all:initial

    Supported by Firefox and Chrome and gives the developer more control over CSS cascading. This would be helpful when when writing components that get inserted in other environments.

    Preferably both property: initial and all: initial would be supported.
