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.

    • Emmet for "Edit as HTML" in Dev Tools

      While editing as HTML in the Elements tab, I would like to have Emmet support for faster HTML typing. It would be specifically very helpful in testing environment for the speed.

      • Show computed height and width in Layout (box model)

        The current Layout displays auto when a height or width is not explicitly defined. This is useful as it is correctly displaying the value. However somewhere outside of that it would be very useful to see the calculated height and width for the element.

        Preferably this would be in the Layout area, although it could also be useful when selecting DOM elements. This is feature parity with Firefox and Chrome.

          I would like to see the functionality to see multiple tabs (like network and sources) together in Dev Tools.

          • An option, to exclude particular line from stopping at with "break on all exceptions" enabled

            Many JS frameworks still use constructs like
            try{
            do-some-browser1-specific-stuff();
            }catch(e){
            do-some-browser2-specific-stuff();
            }

            Which, when "Break on all exceptions" is enabled, hurt debugging a lot.

            It would be nice to exclude some lines like this do-some-browser1-specific-stuff(); from breaking.

                • Record icon not play icon

                  May seem minor, but please change the start recording icon in Network, UI, Profiler etc to a record icon rather than a play icon.

                  (Play/pause is obv correct for the debugger tab as its a different process going on)

                      • Have the tools take focus on the first click

                        When I have the tools open, but I'm interacting with another window, it takes two click on the developer tool's header before it will do anything.

                        So if I want to move the F12 tools and I'm currently interacting with a tab in IE (not the tools), I have to click once on the header of the F12 tools and then click again before it will let me drag it around.

                        • Remember what I had selected in the DOM for a limited time waiting for asynchronous DOM updates

                          When I debug a page that loads most of the content async, I would like a way to keep the selected DOM element until the async request is loading. This means that I don't have to traverse the tree every time to find the element I'm currently working on.

                              This feature would expose syntax errors to a developer who has a file open in the F12 debugger.

                              Proposed Design
                              - If a JavaScript file containing syntax errors is opened in the debugger the syntax error will have a red squiggle and there will be a warning glyph in the gutter

                                This feature would add the ability to edit JavaScript code when stopped in the debugger then to continue (or step) and execute the modified code.

                                Proposed Design
                                - Will have a number of limitations (e.g. not applicable to eval code)
                                - Will not modify the state of the DOM/Objects/Closures etc.

                                  We’ve started work on edit and continue in the F12 debugger. It’s going to take us a while as it’s a complex feature with many moving parts. The first part we’ll tackle is applying changes when you’re not at a breakpoint. So you could do something such as editing an event listener then trigger the event again. No dates for when, or if, we’ll be able to deliver it.

                                • Force Active and Focus Pseudo States

                                  This feature would add the ability to set the focus and active pseudo states from the DOM Explorer pseudo state checkboxes.

                                  Proposed Design
                                  - New checkboxes on the pseudo state toggles
                                  - Would not fire any JavaScript events (e.g. focus, blur)
                                  - Force on only no force off (off toggle state will follow browser default)

                                  • 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)

                                      - Provide a replay button to enter "Edit request mode"
                                      - Provide a context menu option on captured XHR requests to enter "Edit request mode"
                                      - Provide a "Edit request mode" where users can modify and re-send previously made XHR requests

                                      • Ruler tool

                                        This feature would add a ruler tool to the DOM Explorer which would be used to draw an arbitrary ruler on the page to measure the distance between two points.

                                        Proposed Design
                                        - New command on the DOM Explorer
                                        - Only one ruler can be drawn on the page at a time
                                        - Activating the command clears the previous ruler from the page and sets the mouse to draw mode where the first click places the first point and then draws a line to the current mouse pointer location. While moving the mouse cursor, a label should be drawn next…
