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".

  1. Support the ability to export CSV data from performance/ui responsive traces from the F-12 tools

    Often time customers want to see how often a particular thing occurred in the timeline. Like document.createElement(). Manually counting these on large web pages or highly graphical ones can be nearly impossible.

    What would be useful in order to better support IE and Edge and thus reduce the escalations to EE's would be the ability to export to a CSV or excel so that we could actually run count() functions on particular elements or occurrences.

      • dark theme

        Add optional Visual Studio-like Dark theme. Eyes work harder going from VS Dark to F12 Tools light hundred of times a day. Less fatigue, more productivity.

        • F12 developer tools memory analysis allow copying the columns as text

          This should be pretty straight forward, but I would really like to be able to copy text from the F-12 developer tools when working with memory snapshots.

          It makes it easier to paste it later when I hit control-f in the debugger later.

          Right now I can take screen shots, and then I end up having to type out really long class names, or IDs which I could misspell.

          • Show mutation observers in events tab

            The events tab should show mutation observers along with their configuration just like other events.

            • F12 emulation of slow network connections

              This feature would enable the emulation of different network connections such as 3G, 4G etc... changing network throughput, latency and packet loss to match typical conditions for that type of network.

              Proposed Design
              - Impacts just the page being debugged
              - Dropdown on emulation tool to select from the different connection options (exact list tbd)
              - Fits in with the persistence of the rest of the emulation settings

              • Extend F12 functionality to BrowserControl.

                Good idea is to move f12 functionality to BrowserControl. So, developers who use it could get extensive possibilities.
                For now BrowserControl cannot use 'console.log', network tab, and so on.

                • The DevTools' debugger should have a quick open feature like Chrome/WebStorm

                  Chrome and/or WebStorm provide a quick open tool, which hands a searchbox to the user that can be used to find files within the current debugging session. The filter tool is probably very close to this, however it doesn't quite work in the same fashion.

                    • Better support for evaluated code source maps (SystemJS)

                      SystemJS is a polyfill for and extension to the ES6/ES2015 Module Loader (System). It tries its best to pass along Source Maps and Chrome today works alright with SystemJS, but today IE/Edge doesn't seem able to work with these source files. Some of this might be assuaged as IE/Edge implements the ES6/ES2015 Module Loader, but until such time, it would be great if the Dev Tools supported Source Maps in the way that SystemJS is outputting them in a stronger fashion.

                      For reference, the issue tracking this on the SystemJS side is: https://github.com/systemjs/systemjs/issues/450

                      • Allow HTTP headers to add to the Console

                        Following the announcement that Firefox is now supporting a set of HTTP headers so that server responses can add debug information to the Console:

                        https://twitter.com/simevidas/status/659502899786027008

                        Where they are using the spec by Craig Campbell:

                        https://craig.is/writing/chrome-logger/techspecs

                        Which is currently being used by a Google Chrome extension, but will hopefully soon implemented directly in Chrome itself:

                        https://crbug.com/171657

                        Could the F12 developer tools also consider this?

                        There are also a few other extensions which do a similar thing, so it would be good to standardise this between browsers:

                        • har pages

                          I'm happy that Microsoft Edge's F12 Developer Tools now export network requests as a HAR file in the JSON format.
                          However, it leaves out any reference to pages. The JSON pages array is completely gone, and each request in the entries array is missing the pageref parameter. Not sure why this is missing since it is part of the HAR spec. It is even included in IE 11's network recordings that use an XML format, as well as every other browser that supports exporting HAR recordings using JSON format.
                          I would appreciate it if this could get fixed so the…

                            It would be great for web developers to provide them toggle in about:flags to disable "-webkit-" interop hacks, so they can test their websites in pure standard environments and bring more standard compliance in the end to WWW.

                                      • Tree-like view for Source Files in Dev Tools

                                        In app where there are 1000 TypeScript files in multiple projects, I have file name duplicates.
                                        After compiling with source maps, I'm unable to locate any of those duplicated files as I have to click through each such file until desired is found.

                                        Having an option to arrange source files in hierarchy that reflects retrieved URL hierarchy.

                                        • Use F5 to Reload Pages from their Developer Tools

                                          I'd like a seamless way of refreshing A page inside the Developer Tools Window by just pressing F5 like in Chrome, Currently I'd have to do this from edge and that really messes up my workflow
