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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • Implement link rel="modulepreload"

      modulepreload is a new link relation that behaves similar to preload, but different in several key ways. For example, it interprets its attributes and changes to them differently; it uses the module map instead of the preload cache; and it allows optionally fetching descendant modules as an optimization.

      Spec: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/links.html#link-type-modulepreload

      Tests: https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/blob/master/preload/modulepreload.html

      • Add VTTCue and WebVTT support

        WebVTT: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WebVTT_API
        VTTCue: https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/#the-vttcue-interface
        Supported by all other browser vendors in Chrome, FF, Safari.
        Also implement ::CUE pseudo-element to enable support in CVAA.
        Currently all player developers need to create their own subtitles/captions implementations due to browser having fragmented support in all of the above which makes supporting accessibility very hard and cumbersome.
        Having you support this will ensure better interoperability.
        Please consider migrating the solution to IE11 as well as you still have it on platforms which are widely supported and EOL is not near as it seems.

        Also opened as an issue in the platform tracker:

        • OffscreenCanvas

          From MDN: The OffscreenCanvas interface provides a canvas that can be rendered off screen. It is available in both the window and worker contexts.

          From me: It would be great to prepare images and run WebGL without tying up the UI thread.

          • Favorites Menu - website list

            The favorites menu is now 6 inches wide even though the longest entry is only 1-2 inches wide. The menu now takes up 6 inches of the screen. please allow the user to make is narrower so we can see the screen. It just looks odd, most of the area is blank.

            • The WebDriver should not close currently open windows when starting automated testing

              I use Edge as my primary browser, but I also use NCrunch to drive automated UI testing for our web-based applications. When NCrunch kicks off tests impacted by changes I have made, by Edge browsers shut down, with all the tabs and windows lost forever.
              The IE Web Driver didn't have this issue and while I know that the browsers are not the same, the expectation is that they would behave similarly.
              Allowing the Edge Web Driver to trigger and manage its own windows, separate from any that the user has opened and is currently using, would be a welcomed…

              • SDP Unified Plan

                Per spec, Firefox only supports unified plan and Chrome has now aggressively started moving towards it. Chrome has started supporting both, will move to unified plan by default soon and expects to completely drop support for Plan B by 2019.

                • Support bidi isolation for elements with dir attributes, and for bdi

                  This is a specific request for Edge to support bidi isolation per the HTML specification where the dir attribute and the bdi element are used. The wording in the request for dir=auto [1] is equally valid here.

                  Support for isolation is really a fundamental requirement for languages using Arabic and Hebrew and other scripts such as Thaana, Syriac, N'Ko, etc. Note also that the Arabic script is the second most widely used script around the world after the Latin script, so this affects a lot of people. And the lack of isolation is not an edge-case problem (see worked examples…

                  • Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer

                    Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer.

                    In Chrome and Firefox you can jump straight to a page with a URL Hashtag suffix.

                    For example, to jump straight to page 9 of this Microsoft PDF, adding "#page=9" will take you directly there in Chrome/Firefox.

                    http://abouttmc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Dynamics-365-for-Financials-Capabilities-Guide-TMC-2016-11.pdf#page=9

                    However Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

                    As a **developer**, I have pages coded to link to specific pages in PDFs that are up to 1,300 pages long... this is really frustrating for our end users.

                    • Support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT

                      TLS 1.3, the next version of security protocol for private and authenticated communication, is in the final phase of specification.
                      Cloudflare already supports it, Chrome 56 plans to support it January 2017 and Firefox in March 2017.
                      Edge should not stay behind and support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT as well, ideally in the upcoming Creator's Update already.

                      • Allow Edge to print background colors

                        Add an option to Edge similar to the "Print Background Colors and Images" option in IE 11. The use of background colors can enhance layouts and make data more readable, such as on reports or calendars. This would still give the user the option to not allow background colors to print while giving the developer maximum flexibility.

                                  • #rrggbbaa and #rgba color notation support

                                    Couldn't find this anywhere here, so I'll post this feature request.

                                    I'm asking for support of the following notations:

                                    background-color: #12345678;

                                    and

                                    background-color: #1234;

                                    Spec: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color/#hex-notation

                                      • Add ability to type in into input type="date" and input type= "datetime-local"

                                        Add ability to type in into input type="date" and input type ="datetime-local" as:
                                        1. By default the range in the datepicker is restricted +/- 100 years which is not always the case
                                        2. Changing min/max attribute crashes the browser
                                        3. Overall it would be more user friendly to just type in the value in some case with huge distance between actual and expected value

                                        The case: actual value 12/31/9999 being change, expected value 12/31/2017 (the one to be changed to)
