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. Make it more simple to give feedback

    This screen is way too complex to use. I'm just going to stop using edgr.

  3. Canvas 2D Font kerning support

    Actually renderingContext2D fillText and strokeText do not support embedded font kerning information in fonts.
    This makes microsoft based text on canvas looks different from all other browsers.

    Would be nice to support it

  4. search through open tabs with a hot key

    search through open tabs with a hotkey, this way
    users with lots of tabs open can find their way back to the tab instead of opening a new one / move tab to active window.

  7. Don't allow InPrivate mode to be detected easily

    (!window.indexedDB) === true will return true in InPrivate (incognito) sessions and false otherwise. In this way, private browsing modes can be detected. Please protect against this fingerprinting.

  9. Downloads API support for extensions

    Missing Downloads API support is not good. I wanted to port my extension but it relies on basic downloads API missing in Edge.

  11. InPrivate

    InPrivate Browsing per Tab

    Make InPrivate Browsing per Tab possible and not per Instance of Edge. Sometimes you Need more then one Instance in Private and not only one.

  13. 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…

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. Browser Cloud

    Some SmartPhones I've already picked up had some forced-use defects, the phone's GPU didn't support keeping the games open for a long time, nor does the factory browser not run as before, the only one that really did in those conditions was browser called Puffin Web Browser, as it uses the cloud to reproduce the pages, did not feel crashes or anything, the only defect of the browser is the input lag.. I wanted to suggest this idea to you. Have you ever thought about her? With it, besides being lighter, it would not weigh, whatever the smarphone.
