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.

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".

  1. Get Browser History

    How on earth do I go about getting Microsoft Edge's browser history programatically?

    I don't care what language we use I just need a starting point. Every modern day browser has a database file that can be read.

      • Support for Facebook

        As of 21 october 2017. Edge still hangs on FB on direct messages.
        This bug existed since 2015, and were never fixed.
        Edge needs to be closed and restarted. Then its 50% chance its Facebook compatible. Perssonal messages on requires 2-3 restarts to work. Even more if you don't copy text before closing.

        • landmark navigation

          I would like to see a feature for navigating to "landmark regions" using the keyboard. Very similar to the way the F6 key works in the Windows Explorer (try it! :)

          Landmark regions can be defined by the page author by either using ARIA landmark roles (http://w3c.github.io/aria/aria/aria.html#landmark_roles), or HTML5 elements that default to having landmark roles (see summary, below, for a list of these elements).
          Note that the generic landmark role="region" - and its corresponding html "section" element - must have a label before it is considered a true landmark, whereas nav, aside, etc do not technically require…

          • Implement overlay scroll bar (ms-overflow-style)

            When switching between `overflow: scroll` and `overflow: hidden`, the <body> padding changed.
            It is annoying, overlay scroll bar can avoid hack.

            I can use overlay scroll bar at IE (CSS), Chrome (flag), Firefox (add-on),
            Edge should also.

              Remember each site's zoom setting, like in chrome and firefox. I will not use edge until it has this functionality.

              • Fix Insufficient colour contrast of select box items in Windows 10

                go to any website with a select box in IE11 or Edge on Windows 10

                Click/tab to expand for options

                The selected/active element has white text and light blue background, that has a contrast ratio of 2.9:1. That makes it inaccessible.

                Resolution: Provide a darker background with higher contrast ratio

                • Edge mobile scroll bar is invisible on white / light background

                  The Edge mobile scrollbar default colour is white

                  If the page has a white background the scrollbar is invisible because it blends into the background

                  If the page has a black background, you can see the scroll bar normally

                  Please update edge so if the page background is white, the scroll bar is a different colour so it is visible and the contrast is ok.
                  This should be done automatically for any page we visit

                    • Improve default focus style

                      The default "dotted outline" style for elements with focus (e.g. links), is not particularly easy to see, especially if you have poor vision.

                      Can this default be changed to look more like the focus style on OSX, which is a thick blue outline.

                      You can see the difference by changing the "normal style" and "focus style" radio field at the top of this page:

                      http://allyjs.io/tests/focus-outline-styles/index.html

                      • Improve default error style

                        When a page contains several input fields that have been marked as required, and the user submits the form, Edge will add a red outline on all fields, and show an error bubble next to the first field with an error (like most browsers).

                        It's possible for a website to use the :invalid pseudo selector to add their own styles. But if the field is shown with default styles, then it should be the case that "color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information", which is the case when the error bubble has disappeared.

                        This means…

                        • Mouse selection of text on a web page cannot be subsequently extended with the keyboard

                          Using touch, a user can create a selection, and little "grabbers" are rendered allowing the user to expand/contract the selection. However, this post-selection-adjustment feature only works for touch.

                          When using this mouse, the selection has no "grabbers".

                          In both cases, the keyboard cannot be used to adjust the selection. If, instead, I use Firefox or Chrome, the selection can be adjusted by using the keyboard "SHIFT" + arrow keys, to adjust the active selection.

                          Please bring this functionality to Microsoft Edge. It will also help with selection keyboard accessibility.

                            Add options to disable clipboard events per site or on an as needed basis. Really, such options are currently an issue for using password managers that put passwords in the clipboard, but then the site disables OnPaste events. Users should be able to override this on a website.

                            • Implement the Iaccessible2 API

                              Iaccessible2 - http://accessibility.linuxfoundation.org/a11yspecs/ia2/docs/html/index.html is an open source BSD licensed accessibility API it is implemented in Google Chrome and Firefox. Implementing it in IE/Spartan would mean that assistive tech implementers would have an interoperable accessibility API in all major windows browsers, and could therefore focus their limited resources on supporting it rather than having to implement UI automation just for Microsoft browsers. It would also lead to less buggy implementations of accessibility APIs in browsers. A win for users and implementers.

                              • I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

                                I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

                                This includes Flash, HTML5, GIF, MP4, or any type of video that may be invented.

                                What would be ideal is to have a new set of controls in Internet Options that would allow the user to control/override the video controls in all web pages.

                                For example, HTML5 has the <video> ... </video> element that has certain attributes:
                                autobuffer
                                autoplay
                                controls
                                loop

                                The user should be able to control each these attributes on a global basis for all web pages.…
