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. Website shortcuts on PC desktop using Edge?

    With Edge have you dropped the great IE feature of being able to drag and drop a shortcut for a website to our PC desktops for future quick and easy access? I and everyone I know are so used to saving our most visited websites to our desktops as shortcuts and are most annoyed to find that we can't do this with your new Edge browser - please include this feature in Edge otherwise we will have no alternative other than to revert to using IE11 (some of us have already done this).

    • Where have the IE6 and IE7 VMs gone?

      This page ( https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/mac/ ) used to provide VMs for IE6 and IE7.

      In fact the copy still reflects this: "versions of IE6 through IE11"

      • Add OS X native virtualization and light weight Veertu as a drop down for running Microsoft Edge VMs on Macs for Dev/test

        In the https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/mac/, you can add Veertu as a virtualization platform to run Microsoft Edge and other browsers for dev/test. Many developers with Mac are moving to Veertu because it's light weight, sandbox - Ideal for dev/test VMs and uses Apple native hypervisor framework.

        • Update the 'Create a Livetile' page

          Since Windows 8.1 it is possible to create a livetile for a website: http://www.buildmypinnedsite.com/en

          Only it hasn't been updated since then even though Microsoft Edge supports Pinned LiveTiles aswel.

          So I would like to suggest to get this website up to date again. And please make it a lot easier to change the layout of every tile and the ability to easily test if the content you've created is how the Edge would expect them to be for the Livetile

          • checksums for virtual machine images

            I think the virtual machine images, given their size, should have sha256 checksums available so that developers can validate them after download.

            BTW I found the images here:

            • Enumerate Ms Edge History using a C# program or just dump to a logfile

              I need to be able to process the details of the web pages displayed by Ms Edge (you can for all other browsers) Either a direct program call from C# of the ability to dump the details to a log file.
              This tool? would also permit the examination of what pages were read 30+ days ago

                • Provide Windows Virtual Machine image files for Xen/KVM/QEmu.

                  Please provide Windows Virtual Machine image files for Xen/KVM/QEmu. This would help us developers/testers working without access to Windows or the possibility to install VirtualBox at work, but have access to Xen.

                    • Add a roadmap/milestone/releases pages for Edge WebDriver

                      The current releases list (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/webdriver/) lacks dates and does not link to a "details page".

                      I also have no insight into the next release timeframe or feature set.

                      TypeScript does a good job of this via GitHub, providing a roadmap, Milestones and a releases page.

                      • 32-bit Edge VMs to support laptops without hardware virtualization

                        It is completely impossible for a fairly large community of developers to test in Edge at the moment, as only 64-bit VMs are distributed. Even on 64-bit CPUs, you cannot run 64-bit VMs without hardware visualization support; this is still not common on laptops. Please reconsider the decision to lock out developers on year-old hardware from testing Edge, or compatibility of your new browser will suffer.

                            How about a list of 'not supported' tags like on the http://dev.modern.ie/platform/status page. Makes it easy to show devs that "hey, just not gonna be supported".

                            • debugger breakpoint (as in IE) using Visual Studio with the statement "debugger"

                              Could you please make as IE and Visual Studio, where you set in javascript the "debugger" word and then when I run the debugger I get a nice stop into that script. This would be such a great and useful feature...

                              Thank you!

                              • The documentation for VirtualBox VMs is lacking one key step:

                                Users need to know that after unzipping the .ova file, they have to import the virtual machine via File > Import Appliance.

                                I was baffled and nearly gave up, wondering if I'd downloaded the wrong format file.

                                  • Please make a Virtual Machine of Windows XP IE 7

                                    I can get IE 6 and 8 on Windows XP in your virtual machine downloads, but IE 7 is only available on Vista. I don't have infinite room on my hard drive, and I much prefer the 2-3 GB machine rather than the 10+ GB Vista machine. I definitely don't use XP any more for everyday use, but for testing IE its still a fine, fast OS.
