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:

        • Put the console.log source at the same line on the topright corner

          When you do a console.log("hello"), then the text "hello" will be outputted to the console, and then there will also be outputted a "source-link" below that line which can take you to the sourcecode and line of where that console.log was executed.

          So if you do 5 console.log, then there will be 10 lines because of the source-link

          Can you put the source-link to the right or top-right corner on every log, because that would save many lines and be more readable.

          That is was Chrome does.

            • Export current debugging session & DOM html markup to file

              We need an option to export current debugging session to file so we can debug it locally...

              E.g. Export currently loaded html page to file,
              Export currently loaded DOM to file,
              with loaded CSS and Javascript,
              Inc current session cookies for offline use

              So we can debug issues locally offline and also supply to third parties so they can reproduce bugs which exist on production and are hard to replicate

              • Custom docking of developer tool area

                Please allow to dock the dev tools to the side of the window. Also, allow for a separate tab row for and pinned tabs for JavaScript files (like in Visual Studio)

                This small thing would go a long way for many developers on Edge!

                Thanks!

                • Update the Dev tools...

                  I want to simply add border-bottom as a CSS attribute to test an issue i have, however it does not allow me to do that.

                  ( border-bootm, border-left, border-right, and border-top ) @ add to list...

                  I have managed to do it by typing: border-bottom and then clicking out of it.

                  However the option in the drop down should contain this attribute.

                  • Edge should support the "always record developer console messages" setting in the Internet Options

                    The "always record developer console messages" setting in Internet Options is respected by IE but not Edge. This is the #1 reason why I do not use Edge for developing and testing my app. I don't always remember to hit F12 when testing and having all of my logs get lost because of this is a huge detractor.

                    • Allow developers to add privateNetworkClientServer to Edge

                      Testing Edge on localhost can sometimes be a pain. Especially when we load resources from CDNs (like our own). In a mixed localhost / cdn Environment one will always see "This Internet Explorer instance does not have privateNetworkClientServer capabilities", which is a) misleading, since i'm using edge, not IE and is frustrating, since there is no internal Workaround. Fiddler allows me to remap mylocalhost to localhost, which solves the Problem, but I - as a developer - would like to just use it for development, as I do with all my other Browsers.

                      • Allow dev tools to be used in fullscreen

                        If dev tools are undocked, it seems impossible to debug web apps which use Fullscreen API on a single display.

                        * Launch app
                        * Open dev tools
                        * Take appropriate user action to enter fullscreen
                        * Switch to dev tools window

                        Expected: app remains in fullscreen.
                        Actual: app drops out of fullscreen.

                        The only way I've found to effectively debug fullscreen web apps with Edge is by using multiple displays - dev tools on one, app on another.

                        Docking (vertical or horizontal) should be supported in this scenario as well.

                              Both Chrome and Firefox allow developers to manage cookies.Our QA and QE need some cookie editing tools that are more accessible than the console.

                                • Improve overall performance

                                  Every time I open the Dev tools the browser slows a lot and crash often especially with heavy sites. This do not happen with Chrome.
                                  Resizing the view also is incredibly slow and stuck my workstation.

                                  This makes it almost impossible to use even if I would gladly use it instead of the Chrome one

                                  • Do not close F12 Dev Tool window on site load and redirects

                                    The F12 window gets closed when opening a website or during auth redirect, which makes it impossible to debug auth failures and JS errors happening during website initialization.

                                    • Allow F12 tools to be extended with Browser Extensions

                                      I have currently built a browser extension for Chrome that allows me to add a new pane to the DevTools that has its own UI and can communicate with the current tab with a background page for the extensions.

                                      I would like to be able to write the same extension for Edge. That allowed me to do the same.

                                      • Prevent developer tools from causing "(not responding)" and non responsive main UI thread

                                        Currently when I open and close developer tools its often puts edge into an apparent "not responding" state for a few seconds. This makes the platform seem very low quality despite the fact edge in general is great.

                                        This also has the effect of if you are paused in a debugging session on a breakpoint you cannot just press F5 to refresh the page you have to stop the debugger since the UI is locked up... Chrome/Firefox/Safari doesn't do this.

                                        • Support colored logs styles in console

                                          Chrome and Firefox support styling the console text.
                                          I use the feature a lot and I would really appreciate to have it in Edge.
