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.

    • Meta theme-color

      Support Meta theme-color for filling the role msapplication-TileColor, bringing back the role of msapplication-navbutton-color (if those meta tags aren't present) and also setting the color of the status bar on Edge Mobile.

      And maybe something new like changing the color of the tab itself on the Edge browser.

      • Implement DOM accessKeyLabel

        Standard specification at https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/interaction.html#dom-accesskeylabel

        Already implemented in Mozilla Firefox.

        Implementing this in Microsoft Edge would improve performance for websites using this (such as Wikipedia) by not having to load a polyfill that infers this information based on heuristics such as User-Agent strings and OS information.

        This is a simple property accessed through the DOM that returns a string representing the keyboard combination used for access keys. This varies from browser to browser and between different operating systems and devices (mostly desktop however).

        • Repair work of selectionStart/selectionEnd properties for inputs and textareas

          The properties selectionStart and selectionEnd work incorrectly. Their values fail to match the real selection state after certain operations with elements (inputs and textareas).
          Consider a page with an input element (type="text", value="12345", not activeElement). After you call el.setSelectionRange(2,2), what you get is el.selectionStart = 0 although the cursor is positioned correctly.

          • Additional atributes for reading mode

            Hi! I've noticed that the reading wiev of Edge does not by default support rendering pictures and SVG content. Can you consider adding optional HTML attribute for when we WANT the content to be accessible when the user opts to view our page in Reading mode? It would be most helpful for instructions, HowTo's and other content where images are a must.

                • W3C Manifest support

                  Add support for the new W3C manifest specification for pinned apps as well as for Windows store applications.

                  The spec allows for vendor extensions which can be used for things missing in the Level 1 of the spec. A lot of things have already been planned for Level 2 so it would be great if the MS team could participate in the discussions

                  • Implement <table sortable>

                    It is a common use case with data tables that one would like to sort the data, to order by a particular column (or multiple columns.)

                    Currently this must be done via JavaScript, but HTML5.1 has the `sortable` attribute for <table> [1] and the `sorted` attribute for <th> [2]

                    [1] http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/tabular-data.html#attr-table-sortable
                    [2] http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/tabular-data.html#attr-th-sorted

                        • <datalist> size and style

                          Hi,

                          I'm creating a contact form and I was using the <select> tag and I discovered the <datalist> tag and I think it's very useful, because it's dynamic (you can write and have some options at the same time). The problem is that I can't minimize the list of option with size="5" like with <select> tag. With <datalist>, I have like 30 options showing at the same time without scrollbar, so we can't see all of them...

                          My suggestion is to add css style like with <select> to change how the datalist look (color, shape, etc) and to be able…

                              Currently IE is an only browser I know to block blob:/data: URLs as an iframe src. Since iframes do not provide any other way to set Content-Type, this disallows some interesting client-side scenarios such as iframed SVG preview.
