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.

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".

    • Source links for hrefs printed to the console

      This feature would scan (via a regex - eugh) for any URL inside a message and when found convert them into a hyperlink that will navigate the debugger.

      Proposed Design
      - Use the same logic as the debugger for detecting and canonicalization a URL into an absolute URL
      - Hyperlinks should appear as hyperlinks and when activated navigate the debugger

        • Editor file picker can be pinned/unpinned

          This feature would add a button toggle to file picker to alternate the behavior of the file picker to either have its current behavior or (new) to be docked and always visible on the left hand side of the debugger.

          Proposed Design
          - Pin toggle added to the right of the input box for the file picker
          - Toggle is 2nd in tab order (after the input box) for the file picker
          - Width of the pane will be resizable and persisted
          - When docked, the file picker items are added to the tab order of the debugger (the tree…

          • Evaluate to console

            This feature would add an "Evaluate in console" to the DOM tree context menu that would send the selected element to the console (same as console.log(<element>).

            Proposed Design
            - New context menu item "&Evaluate in console" to be enabled for any markup node in the DOM tree in the DOM Explorer.
            - The command will decode the image (based on the media type supplied in the URI) to a bitmap that can be copied to the clipboard

            • Custom filtering in console

              This feature would add an input box to the console that would winnow the displayed console items to only items that match the contents

              Proposed Design
              - Input box in top right of console in the same location as the find box on other tools
              - The console items should be winnowed as the developer types (no need to commit with enter etc.)
              - Searches all visible info (message, location, property key/values)
              - Simple text search (could be done on the serialized version from the copy item command)
              - Whitespace is treated as an AND operation (e.g. window foo would…

                • Cancel find operations in the DOM Explorer

                  This feature would add an 'x' button the search box in the debugger and DOM Explorer that would cancel a find operation once started.

                  Proposed Design
                  - After committing a search and locking the text box a red 'x' is added in the far right of the control (in place of the clear button) that once pressed will cancel the find operation and return the text box to the edit state (placing focus at the end of the text)
                  - Is in tab order after the (now) read only text box
                  - Will not clear the text box
                  - Will…

                  • Persist active document in debugger

                    This feature would persist which document was last open in the debugger.

                    Proposed Design
                    - The URL of the last open document will be persisted and if F12 is opened on a page containing that document the document will be made the active tab in the debugger
                    - If the document hasn't been loaded by the page then the default (root) document should be shown

                      • Stop all profilers button

                        This feature would extend the "Debugging is disabled while profiling..." message to include a button to stop all profilers.

                        Proposed Design
                        - Extend the common notification UI to include a button in the far right of the UI as a tab stop
                        - Add a button that reads "Stop Profiling", which when activated messages any tool that is profiling to stop as if the user hit 'stop profiling' in that tool (e.g. process the report etc.)

                        • Network response thumbnail preview

                          This feature shows a preview of the responses body in the summary view.

                          Proposed Design
                          -For image responses, a thumbnail would show up in front of the request URL column
                          -For other type of responses, an icon calling out the response type would show up in front of the request URL column

                            This feature allows users to easily identify the combined size of the response headers and the response body. It also allows users to easily identify the size of the request header and request body.

                            - Display received size in the summary view (combined size of the response headers and the response body)
                            - Display the size of the request and response headers inside the headers tab
                            - Display the size of the request and response body inside the body tab
                            and the response body)
                            -P2: Display content size inside the summary view (resource's decoded content)

                            • Find results pane

                              This feature would add a "Find Results' pane to the debugger. When carrying out a find across files operation in the debugger (by pressing enter) the results will be shown in a pane that lists out all the matches along with a preview. The list of results can be used to navigate the editor to the results.

                              Proposed Design
                              - A light dismiss pane that will replace the console window when displayed
                              - Navigating the results pane (mouse or keyboard) will change the editor view but will not set focus in the editor
                              - Activating a match will change the…

                              • Support for asynchronous pluggable protocol in IE (Internet Explorer)

                                Allow custom URI's in Internet Explorer, like nabto://device.company.net.
                                Basically implement the IInternetProtocol family of COM interfaces on Windows Phone 8 and allow us to add our own protocol handlers (in the Registry) - it is possible on Windows 8.
