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".

    • [EPUB Reader] EPUB3 MediaOverlays

      In English there are few mistakes in reading synthesized speech (TTS), but errors in other languages by all means will occur.
      For that reason, for textbooks in Japanese language of elementary school lower grades, recording with real voice is necessary.
      Currently it installs and plays playback software, but it is ideal if it can open directly by the browser and play it.
      Please support EPUB3 MediaOverlays playback.

      • Ability to drag and drop images from the browser to desktop/folder

        Most browsers support the ability to drag and drop images from the browser to a folder on your taskbar or on your desktop. This makes it easy to quickly save images from a webpage. The closest thing Edge is able to do now, is making a shortcut to the url of the image. Which of course doesn't help.

        • Support VP9 video codec when not hardware-accelerated

          Edge supports the WebM VP9 encoding in MSE but only when accelerated, or if the end-user modifies about:flags. This means that sites using WebM VP9 but not H.264 cannot rely on playback in Edge, as most computers do not yet have hardware VP9.

          For sites like Wikipedia that avoid H.264 due to licensing policy, this leads to less efficient workarounds or lack of media usage. We would love to deploy Edge-compatible VP9 if it were usable. An opt-in API for JS would be acceptable.

                • Make user permissions persistent for getUserMedia()

                  A user is prompted for permissions to access the microphone *each* *time* they access a page that calls getUserMedia().

                  This is makes web apps that are used regularly essentially unusable, because the user permissions dialog pops up at every page load.

                  Both FF and Chrome support persistent user permissions.

                  • Webex

                    Please develop a Webex extension so that Webex webcasts can be accessed through Microsoft Edge. I really like Edge, but I watch quite a few Webex webcasts, which I have to view through Chrome. A nuisance.

                        • Support for embedded audio in SVG animations

                          Please add support for embedded audio in SVG animations in EDGE.
                          For example to playback files like this:

                          https://imgh.us/LoveDota.svg

                          On Chrome and Safari it works fine. Not on EDGE.

                          Many cartoon episodes on the web require SVG embedded audio.

                          • Please add Media Source Extension support to IE 11 on Windows 7.

                            Please add support for Media Source Extensions to Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7. This update will match what is currently available using Chrome or Firefox.

                            In addition it is very confusing that this feature is available on IE 11 with Windows 8 and 10 but not 7.

                                I'm posting this under IE development although it is in my view not a browser problem but a problem of Windows 10 & Windows 8.1.

                                I have a web application which uses standard HTML input elements type="file" to open the filepicker dialog. On a mobile device this will open in Windows 8, IOS & Android a dialog which allows the user among others to select the camera app of the device. The user can than take a photo and after finishing post the photos location back to the browser, like he would select a "normal" file. In Windows 8.1 &…

                                • HEVC Support

                                  Hi,

                                  H265 aka HEVC is the successor of the H264 video format.
                                  HEVC is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality. It can alternatively be used to provide substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate. It can support 8K UHD and resolutions up to 8192×4320.

                                  What about to support this in Microsoft Edge and IE?

                                  • Web Audio API AudioContext needs suspend and resume.

                                    WAA AudioContext has a supend and resume call per the official spec. This will stop/resume audio playback and also stop.resume the audio clock. Without this, any playing buffers or buffers queued for playing will need to be stopped, and restarted from where they left off, which can get messy.

                                    • Allow multiple consecutive calls to print()

                                      When I try to call print() multiple time in succession, the print dialog shows: Nothing was sent to print. Open a document and try again.
                                      https://jsfiddle.net/2qsch8f7/

                                      Chrome and FF prompt user with multiple consecutive print dialogs instead.

                                      • Support Data URI for Audio and Video

                                        All major browsers support data uri for images, audio and video. IE only supports it for images.
