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.

  1. include browser version in user agent string

    Microsoft Edge on windows does not include the version of the browser but only the version of layout engine:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/64.0.3282.140 Safari/537.36 Edge/18.17763

    The version should be 44.17763.1.0, since 18.17763 is the version of layout engine

    I suggest something like:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/64.0.3282.140 Safari/537.36 Edge/44.17763.1.0 (EdgeHTML 18.17763)

    • Emulation: Support emulation of popular iOS and Android devices

      Our customers have an environment where most laptops run Windows 10 but most company phones are iPhones. Those who sport tablets have iPads and occasionally Android tablets. When developing for this device environment we have to consider emulation and only use real devices when testing. We are trying hard to adopt Edge as a development browser but with the current developer tools emulation only having Windows Phone devices out of the box our guys have to resort to custom configurations. Considering the market share of Windows Phone devices versus the market share of Android and iOS devices it doesn't make…

          • Option for ACTUAL request payload

            The old version of this tool showed me the actual payload string but now shows the key/val pairs broken down and sorted alphabetically. This isn't useful for me any more. Please include an option to show the ACTUAL payload string as is built and sent.

            • Enable Migration of Password from Firefox/Chrome or at least via a XML file into Edge

              Enable Migration of Password from Firefox/Chrome or at least via a XML file into Edge. Chrome/Firefox lets you export the password to a XML File and this can be used to import the same into Edge. This is the main thing that is keeping me away from using Edge.

              • We updated our system at work to Windows 10. At work we have the option of using old Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. because one of our software

                Recently at work we upgraded to Windows 10. We still have the option of using Windows 8.1. Reason being our Software System that is pertinent to our business only works well with 8.1. There is another issue that I have found with Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 when using simultaneously. In Windows 8.1 when you click on a link to a webinar, a video, or fill out a form or application where you have to hit a submit button to send. There are many applications that will not work by clicking on the link you have to open Microsoft Edge…

                • Show window size when resizing

                  This feature would show the current size of the Page (innerHeight and innerWidth) in a small label drawn in F12 as Edge is resized. The dimensions in the label would update as the Edge window is resized.

                    • Do not close F12 Dev Tool window on site load and redirects

                      The F12 window gets closed when opening a website or during auth redirect, which makes it impossible to debug auth failures and JS errors happening during website initialization.

                      • F12 emulation of slow network connections

                        This feature would enable the emulation of different network connections such as 3G, 4G etc... changing network throughput, latency and packet loss to match typical conditions for that type of network.

                        Proposed Design
                        - Impacts just the page being debugged
                        - Dropdown on emulation tool to select from the different connection options (exact list tbd)
                        - Fits in with the persistence of the rest of the emulation settings

                          Add optional Visual Studio-like Dark theme. Eyes work harder going from VS Dark to F12 Tools light hundred of times a day. Less fatigue, more productivity.

                          • An Edge Extension that allows developers to create HTTP REST calls

                            As a SharePoint and web developer, I often have to create and troubleshoot HTTP REST calls. I would like to manipulate the querystring, headers and body as well as use different HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.) and see the results.

                            • Before and After Pseudo Elements

                              This feature would extend the DOM tree in the DOM Explorer to include pseudo element as selectable elements (as if they were real nodes) so that the styles applied to them can be applied.

                              Proposed Design

                              - Items appear in the tree surrounded by a delimiter that indicates the 'pseudo' (e.g. :before)
                              - The node is selectable and once selected the CSS styles panes should be updated to reflect the style of the pseudo element the events pane should be empty
                              - All of the commands that impact the tree should be disabled (cut, copy, paste, add attribute, delete, etc.)

                              • @media print emulation

                                There is currently, as far as I can see, no way to view the layout of printed document and the CSS styles that will be applied when printed. In Chrome you can choose to emulate @media print mode and inspect the document.

                                I am trying to debug why the text of a document printed from Chrome and IE11 has such wildly different text sizes but I cannot trace the font-size styles in IE to compare it to the font-size in Chrome.

                                  It would be nice to see the indexedDB database in dev-tools.

                                  * Version

                                    -Add a WS Frames tab in the details view to display the data
                                    -Frames panel displays plains text data and calls out binary opcodes and origin of the data

                                    • Call stacks for messages

                                      This feature would add a (expandable) view of the call stack associated with a console message (where applicable e.g. console.log) with each frame being a hyperlink to the relevant source location.

                                      Proposed Design
                                      - Expando after the current source location string (Default collapsed)
                                      - When expanded each frame would be shown as a new line (in order) underneath the source location (which is the top frame)

                                        • PowerShell module

                                          It would be awesome (and expected) to be able to interact with Edge using PowerShell. Automating the importing/exporting of favorites for example would be great.
