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".

    • Support the `inert` attribute

      Trapping focus in modal dialogs or preventing focus in background layers in modern web applications is extremely difficult and error-prone. Developers either have to walk the DOM and disable every focusable control with tabindex="-1" and `aria-hidden="true"` on a parent element, or do some tricky JavaScript to maintain focus inside of an element. Many developers get this wrong or they don't do it at all, creating horribly inaccessible experiences for keyboard and screen reader users.

      The inert attribute currently being explored in the WICG solves this problem by providing a mechanism to disable entire subtrees in HTML. By setting `inert` on…

      • Bring `gap` property to flexbox

        As outlined in the linked issue, having the ability to use grid-gap on flexbox (which is soon to be renamed just "gap" by the CSS Working Group because "grid-gap" doesn't make sense when used on flexbox) solves a major pain point that developers are facing.

        See the issue for more details:

        • Mac version of Edge

          Produce a Mac version of Edge so developers on Mac can see how their work effects Edge users. This would also improve the user experience for people running Edge on Windows.

          • Spread operator for object literals

            This feature is currently Stage 3 and is implemented by Firefox stable, Chrome stable, Safari Preview, and Node stable.

            This is really useful for shallow cloning objects:

            let objClone = { ...obj };

            • Assigned Access

              Edge is supposed to be UWP!? Then why can't I choose it as the assigned app when setting up an Assigned Access Account in Windows 10 Pro? Edge really needs to support this Windows 10 feature. We are currently forced to download a third party browser app from the store to use a browser in this mode.

                • Implement Intelligent Tracking Protection (ITP) as in Safari, or equivalent protection

                  A user-agent should act to protect its user's best interest. ITP is a sensible compromise between no privacy and ad-blocking since it enables advertising without abandoning data protection. Since there is no existing standard, Edge could experiment with an approach different from ITP, but it's a good starting point (and does not break the Web).

                  • 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…

                      • Support Media Queries level 4 syntax improvements

                        CSS Media Quries Level 4 bring in a bunch of syntactic improvements. They make media queries much more readable and maintainable.

                        https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mq-syntax

                        Here's an example:

                        Before:

                        @media (min-width: 20em), not all and (min-height: 40em) {
                        @media not all and (pointer: none) {

                        }
                        }

                        After:

                        @media ((width >= 20em) or (height < 40em)) and (pointer) {

                        }

                          • 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

                              • Async Generators / Async Iterators

                                Async iterators and async generator functions(https://github.com/tc39/proposal-async-iteration) are now a stage-3 ECMAScript proposal, nearly finished. They make many styles of programming in JavaScript easier (https://ponyfoo.com/articles/javascript-asynchronous-iteration-proposal); in particular, they are important for WHATWG Streams (https://streams.spec.whatwg.org). As of 2017-10-22, async generators have already been implemented in Blink, Firefox, and WebKit.

                                  Often when a page loads, loading indicator disappears very quickly, and I don't have visual feedback that somethings are being processed in background, I just get an empty page, and when I start to think that the link is dead or something else went wrong, page suddenly appears.

                                    A implementation of the ResizeObserver API would be nice.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • use Surface Book dGPU for WebGL and WebVR

                                      On a Surface Book 1 and Surface Book 2, both running Edge 16 with latest patches, FishGL gets <20fps. Looking at Task Manager, the Edge process is not using the NVidia discrete GPU *at all*. WebVR on the Surface Book 2 was similarly poor in performance. Please use the dGPU when WebGL or WebVR are in-use on a tab. If that means the tab has to be suspended or reloaded when detaching, that's fine by me.

                                      • 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:
