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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. hanging-punctuation

    As defined by the spec, the `hanging-punctuation` property determines whether a punctuation mark, if one is present, hangs and may be placed outside the line box (or in the indent) at the start or at the end of a line of text.

    For most developers, CSS-tricks provides a sufficient explanation of its benefits that are often long-desired with critical textual content: https://css-tricks.com/almanac/properties/h/hanging-punctuation/

    • Support CSS Motion Path Module

      Since SMIL will be deprecated in Blink and there is no intent to implement in MS Edge, we need to fill in the gaps and provide alternative ways to do with CSS what we could do in SMIL.

      The CSS Motion Path spec is now a Level 1 module and is in W3C Working Draft status:: http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-motion-1-20150409/

      Using the properties defined in this specification, we will be able to animate HTML and SVG elements along arbitrary paths, using nothing but good old CSS.

      There is a bug report open to fixes in Blink, hopefully to make it to implementation this…

      • Support reverse scrolling when justify-content: flex-end

        Initial scroll position should be the end-edge of the element, as it is on Google Chrome.

        • Implement ::selection according to Pseudo Elements Level 4

          ::selection has now been re-added to the spec: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-pseudo-4/#selectordef-selection

          You should considering starting to work on updating the implementating in Edge according to that spec. There are many bugs in the current implementation - you can't, for instance, write :root::selection or html::selection, and body::selection only applies to direct descendants, text nodes placed directly into <body> without wrapping. In the spec, it says: "Authors wanting multiple selections styles should use ‘:root::selection’ for their document-wide selection style, since this will allow clean overriding in descendants. (‘::selection’ alone would apply to every element in the tree, overriding the more specific styles of any…

              Printing to the "Microsoft Print to PDF" Printer does not show background colors of table cells or DIV tags. How can I include these background colors in the "Print to PDF"?

                  • Support `text-align: start` (& `end`) from CSS Text Module Level 3

                    Add support for the `start` and `end` values of the `text-align` property, as specified in the CSS Text Module Level 3 spec ( http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-text-3/#text-align-property ).
                    These are very useful when writing stylesheets that take RTL (right-to-left) languages into account for page layouts.
                    The other major desktop browsers already support them: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/text-align#Browser_compatibility

                      Please just axe IE and don't rebrand with the Spartan project. You're literally the worst browser in every conceivable test http://html5test.com http://css3test.com and yet you make fun of people who critique you instead of dumping resources into fixing your garbage browser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD9FAOPBiDk

                      So happy Chrome is bashing you nowadays. You deserve it.

                        • @document (css conditional rule)

                          The @document rule has long been implemented in Firefox, but the W3C deferred further discussions about @document to CSS4, thus not carving anything out in stone - yet.

                          Please make a push for getting the @document rule recognized and implmented in Edge, or something that works a similar way.

                          Thank you!

                                Currently, JS has to be used to apply styles to a scrolled container. It would be fantastic to have a psuedoclass like :scrolling or :overflowing to apply specific styling, like correcting for the space taken up by a scrollbar or perhaps applying a fixer header automatically.

                                    • Make CSS unit 'ch' consistent with other browsers

                                      Currently, IE claims to support the 'ch' CSS unit (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#font-relative-lengths), but its implementation differs from other browsers' one. While other browsers consider '1ch' equal to the overall width of the character, including its side-bearings, IE seems to take into account only the width of the painted area, without side-bearings. This makes IE's implementation almost useless in practical tasks like http://lea.verou.me/2012/02/simpler-css-typing-animation-with-the-ch-unit/. Can the implementation of this unit be changed for the parity with other browsers, so we could use it interoperably?

                                        • all:initial

                                          Supported by Firefox and Chrome and gives the developer more control over CSS cascading. This would be helpful when when writing components that get inserted in other environments.

                                          Preferably both property: initial and all: initial would be supported.
