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".

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.

      • Browser Settings API

        It can be very useful for developers to have a legit and simple settings overrides API. For example, you can see Chrome's API that was defined as the only way for overriding user settings through extensions - https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/settings_override

        In Chrome's case it supplied two significant benefits:
        1) Extensions developers could legitimately monetize their software without interfering with the users' experience.
        2) It reduced the number of proprietary monetization solutions which can decrease the browser's stability.

          • Disable the tile version of IE via Group Policy or some other Enterprise management tool.

            Certain websites require add-ons that do not run in the tile version of IE in Windows 8.1+, thus causing the user to manually switch to the desktop version of IE. For end-user simplicity, it would be nice to have the ability to disable the tile version of IE via Group Policy or some other Enterprise management tool.

                • Simulation for older ie versions for testing purposes

                  It would be great for developers and designers to check for compatibility issues in older ie versions via some extension.
                  It can be developed much like webdeveloper tools in mozilla.

                  • Plug-ins in Web Browser control

                    Currently, plug-ins like AdBlock and Web Of Trust does not work inside IE derived controls (such as System.Windows.Controls.WebBrowser in WPF).
