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.

How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

              • Add Group Policy setting to disable delete browser history

                As an education customer, we do not want students to be able to delete browser history. Chrome and IE both have a Group Policy setting to prevent that. Could a Group Policy setting like IE's "Prevent access to Delete Browsing History" be added for Edge, please?

                • Emulation: Support emulation of popular iOS and Android devices

                  Our customers have an environment where most laptops run Windows 10 but most company phones are iPhones. Those who sport tablets have iPads and occasionally Android tablets. When developing for this device environment we have to consider emulation and only use real devices when testing. We are trying hard to adopt Edge as a development browser but with the current developer tools emulation only having Windows Phone devices out of the box our guys have to resort to custom configurations. Considering the market share of Windows Phone devices versus the market share of Android and iOS devices it doesn't make…

                  • Address bar at bottom in Edge for Android / iOS

                    Please create the possibility to display the address bar at the bottom.

                    The handling would be made much easier and the browser could be operated with one hand. Alternatively you can take the function Home from the Chrome as an example.

                    • Implement Web Share API

                      Web Share API landed on Chrome for Android in version 61. It's a neat way of providing native sharing hooks to a web app.

                      • Firefox instead of Chromium

                        Use the Firefox engine instead of the Chromium engine for use in Edge. Firefox is more secure, more private, and uses less resources.

                        • UX

                          I'd like to volunteer to be a part of the Edge user experience, product engineering, design team. I am passionate about continuous improvement and feel that I could be of great use to the MS team. While I don't have formal training in UX, it appears that hasn't been a requirement thus far. I believe in MS and it's potential in creating a robust browser and sure if applications that will rival Google; I'm just not sure what's taking so long. I have uninstalled or disabled all Google products from my laptop and mobile phone but only made it 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.

                                I want to love Edge, but I HATE it. Here is why. When I turn off location in Windows 10, why does it contine to f-ing hound me that sites want my location?

                                If I go to full screen why does it ask me for every f-ing site if it is OK?

                                And lastly, I NEVER want to allow ANY site to send me notification, yet I have NO control over any of these MORONIC annoyances.

                                I would fire every one of your sorry, pathetic, ***** for not realizing that most people hat that ****.

                                    after posting an issue in the issue tracker, you might notice an inaccuracy, typo or sensitive data and it'd be pretty handy to be able to fix those things.

                                    • Please reconsider how Edge and IE react to an OK: 204 response. IMHO this is not according to spec.

                                      After receiving a http 204: OK, no content. Edge still is waiting for something to arrive although the spec states that no content is to be expectedd

                                        • Implement CSS 'overscroll-behavior'

                                          Consider implementing the new CSS overscroll-behavior property.

                                          ## Specification
                                          This feature specification is being incubated in WICG:
                                          https://wicg.github.io/overscroll-behavior/

                                          Additional background on this feature may be found here:
                                          https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/769

                                          ## Summary
                                          CSS overscroll-behavior standardizes a supercharged version of "-ms-scroll-chaining". It allows developers to determine the browser's behavior once a scroller has reached its full extent.
                                          The unused delta can be propagated to the parent causing scroll chaining, create a glow/bounce effect without chaining, or just get consumed silently. In particular when used on viewport defining element, it controls if overscroll can be used for navigation actions such as pull-to-refresh or swipe…
