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".

    • Edge caching could be improved in error cases

      I'm a developer on Azure CDN. When testing out some scenarios on our side, we noticed a difference in behavior between how Chrome browser and Edge browser work for caching some bad responses. In our CDN, if we detect that the eTag on an 'If-None-Match' request header is for a 'malformed eTag' (one with no quotes), such as If-None-Match: 64988f77337209c5a7157a016c456d02, we return a 400 response.

      On chrome, the workflow goes like this:
      Download page, get 200, everything fine.
      Refresh page, browser sends If-None-Match with bad eTag, we detect this and send 400 to browser. Chrome detects this issue, and next…

      • RTSP Streaming Protocol Support

        The video surveillance industry relies heavily on the RTSP protocol (as implemented by ffmpeg, vlc media player, live555, etc) for streaming h264 and h265 video content.

        It's not a new protocol by any stretch but it is part of the ONVIF standard that essentially all video surveillance manufacturers use as well as part of the PSIA standard which a subset of the manufacturers also support (in addition to ONVIF).

        It's a simple protocol and there are plenty of open source implementations.

        HTML5 does not include equivalent functionality.

        WebRTC pushes VP8/9 and while it may support h264 it's often online baseline…

        • 103 Early Hints

          The 103 Early Hints status code allows a server to tell browsers what to pre-fetch (with link headers) before the final response is available (e.g. because the server needs to "think", or because it's fetching something from another server).

          This is functionally similar to HTTP/2 server push, but simpler and more interoperable.

          • 3DES only available for local domains/router segments/local networks if needed. NOT FOR THE INTERNET.

            SCHANNEL : The 3DES Cipher should be used - if needed at all - ONLY selectively and definitely kept blocked - disabled - for Internet Connections ranging outside of a local Network boundary (or outside of proxied Segments or NAT Domains or also when not being used through either encrypted VPN Tunnels).
            I recommend this because it is weak. (64bit ciphers are generally considered weak now because of their limitation).

            • RTC Data Channels

              Data channels allow a web application to send and receive generic application data peer-to-peer.

              • Send window inner dimensions and screen DPI to the server with every request

                This is not a thing at the present time in any browser AFAIK, but wouldn't it be magical if SSR code could know exactly how many pixels it needs to render? We could optimize image sizes, we could try to render fonts server side, we could execute media/viewport queries and know the meanings of %-based layouts all before the page even makes it to the client. We could also compute layout on the server and decide to fetch less data (only above the fold for example) for smaller screens during initial page load. I'm surprised we haven't done this a…

                • UI interface for dns resolving

                  I understood that because edge runs in a sandbox, it has problems using the hosts file.

                  Maybe we can have an u.i. where we can set where the domains have to resolve to. So we don't need the hosts file anymore.

                  • Websocket - support for custom headers for handshake

                    please consider adding ability to add custom headers for handshake. In RFC6455 there one interesting point:

                    The request MAY include any other header fields, for example, cookies [RFC6265] and/or authentication-related header fields such as the |Authorization| header field [RFC2616], which are processed according to documents that define them. I've found an example how to add custom header to handshake: https://blog.heckel.xyz/2014/10/30/http-basic-auth-for-websocket-connections-with-undertow/ but this is for Java and unfortunately isn't possible in HTML5.

                    When searching over the net I found many places question about this option, for example: sta/websocket-sharp#22 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4361173/http-headers-in-websockets-client-api/4361358#4361358 aspnet/SignalR#888

                    For example in Python this is possible https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15381414/sending-custom-headers-in-websocket-handshake. Other languages…

                            • Raise the connection timeout for slow connections as many sites don't show up at all.

                              On Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 on PC (using 3G networks), on limited bandwidth (64kbit/s), many websites will refuse to load at all, as Edge Closes the Connection as it times out. This worked fine with Opera on Windows 10, Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.1 and also works fine on Android's major browsers (Chrome, FF).
                              I suggest, the timeout should be raised on low-speed connections to allow the user to access websites at all. Adding a picture quality Setting would really not hurt either. I think this problem must be affecting many people who are on low-speed Internet.

                                  SSL key logging is a feature that browsers export TLS keys into a text file, which can be used by Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffic. This feature can be enabled on Firefox and Chrome by setting SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable, which is a path to the log file.

                                  This feature is useful for debugging network error and for learning structures of TLS-encrypted application layer protocols (such as encrypted HTTP/2) with Wireshark.

                                  • TCP raw sockets

                                    Please support the upcoming Raw Sockets API (not "web-sockets")
                                    https://www.w3.org/TR/tcp-udp-sockets/
                                    This enables a whole new class of applications!

                                    Chrome does it already with "chrome.sockets.tcp"

                                    THANKS!

                                      • Support the application/vnd.api+json MIME type

                                        The application/vnd.api+json MIME type is used by the JSON API (http://jsonapi.org/). Edge does not support it, so JSON API content does not render in the browser - instead, the browser thinks it's a binary format and tries to download it.

                                        Also, as it is not supported, error pages that are returned in the JSON API format do not show up.

                                        • Allow XMLHttpRequest to handle "data:..." URLs - like all other browsers

                                          Currently on Edge (also on IE), trying to fetch a data-URL like "data:text/plain;charset=ISO...,...text..." fails - as it is considered cross-domain.
                                          All other major browsers allow this.
                                          This is useful for converting "exotic" charsets.
