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.

  1. Selectable items in history, favourites...

    Right now you can only interact with an item one by one.
    Say you go to your favourites and you want to drag multiple links inside one folder. You'll have to do this one item after another, instead it would be nice if you could select the desired options and then interact with all of them

    • IE drop down menu of the 20 internet sites I visit every day

      Why was this removed ? I still use IE purely because I hate having to type in URL'S in Edge. IE crashes all the time and it is terrible, but I still use it instead of edge

      Surely the replacement should be better than the original?

      • Ctrl-F to finds in the text field

        What is the best way to put in a feature request to the IE/Edge team? Chrome has a great feature in that if you do a "Ctrl-F" to search, and you start to type a term, Chrome will find instances of that search term in the text fields of a form. Firefox does this as well. Unfortunately, both IE & Edge do not provide this feature. IE/Edge will only search in the text that is on a page, not text that is in a value attribute of a text field.

        It is painful to explain to someone that is looking…

          • Browser de-animator feature

            Request de-animator feature for MS Edge will let people use their browser again at work and in an office environment. This feature will let users open all browser windows without any distracting animations or auto-playing video. Flash or html5 graphics will be frozen, displayed in black and white, non-animated. No surprise sounds or video will be played out loud. This will replace the need for ad block and pacify advertisers at the same time; because it does not completely block their messages. But it does restore some dignity to the browsing experience for whom would again like to use the…

            • Allow saving of printer settings

              Can you allow us to save printer settings so we don't have to configure them every time we print? I need to be more productive. Also, I use a shared printers and it costs me per pages(.15 vs. $1.00) when I overlook the settings

              • Implement drag-drop functionality for web shortcuts.

                Edge is nice but it won't become my default browser until drag-drop of website shortcuts is supported.

                • feedback hub link broken! Edge fails video from webcam, NO ERROR MESSG, works with legacy doc format but no user will be able to find it

                  needs to provide useful error messages / user feedback so that a normal user can get legacy pages to display
                  some legacy pages will NEVER be updated - eg. webcam
                  IT MUST BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!
                  there is no point having a link to "Feedback Hub" if it returns "page not found"

                  • Increase IndexedDb Size Limitation

                    The limit on database size for a domain is too small, currently it is around 500MB. FF, Chrome and Safari all allow the databases to be many GBs depedning on available Hard Drive space. Our web application deals with a large amount of data and we use the database to pre-cache data for review later so that the review process is quick. We deal with massive amounts of data where each set of data to review is in the 100s of MB but can also easily exceed 1GB.

                    • Provide Component Object Model access to EdgeHTML

                      COM is a great interface for all kinds of Windows apps to access Microsoft Edge. By providing COM access, Windows-based automation, including .NET (C#/VB/PowerShell etc.) and native C++, with Microsoft Edge is possible. At this time, InternetExplorer.Application object cannot be used to access EdgeHTML, so please expose COM for Windows developers!

                      • Add a way for the website to determine if the user has dark mode enabled

                        Now that we have dark mode in the OS and in the browser, it's time for the websites to join!
                        Add window.msDarkModeEnabled or something similar for developers to determine if the user has dark mode enabled and act accordingly.

                          • Build an Edge version of System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser Control

                            The WebBrowser control is a commonly used control in desktop application development. (e.g. It's a key component of the Dynamics CRM Universal Service Desk application)

                            There is no way to use the EdgeHTML as the rendering engine for this control (only IE/Trident is available).

                            Although JavaScript heavy applications (such as Dynamics CRM) work in IE, they perform significantly better in Edge.

                            Making these performance gains available to users of desktop applications would dramatically improve their user experience.

                              Since Edge driver depends on windows 10 build version, is there any chance for the Edge driver to get shipped with windows 10 builds. something like it gets shipped natively like the native calc.exe in the system32 folder...

                              This would help a lot with automating test infrastructure...

                                • Allow Edge to be updated on its own

                                  Microsoft isn’t updating Edge via the Store as originally promised. Edge updates seem to be held back for major new versions of Windows 10, unlike Windows 10’s other included apps, which are updated more regularly. A good example is the big Nov 2015 Windows update which is the only way to get Edge 25 with EdgeHTML 13 including the drag & drop file fix.

                                  As a web developer I can safely assume Firefox and Chrome users are on the latest version (we don't support the versions pre auto-update). I can't for Edge because major Windows updates are non-trivial and not…

                                      • Support for Web Control in Edge like in internet explorer

                                        A big list of software uses Internet Explorer web control for importing browser in their applications. It is better to support web browser control in Microsoft Edge. Otherwise such users will shift their applications to other browser controls.

                                        • Modern web browser control

                                          Currently the web browser control is essentially IE launched inside of a process with tab proc growth set to 0. This is okay, but will quickly become outdated.

                                          As modern web standards evolve, web developers want a web control that can keep up with modern promises (pun intended).

                                          In other words, If you are going to discontinue feature updates for IE, then you need to give us something we can program against for the modern world.

                                          Imagine 5 years from now. How much will the WWW change? ES 7 etc. What would any company's motivation be to continue to use…
