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?

  1. Publish edge_embedded_browser/client/win/webview2.idl

    Please publish the file edge_embedded_browser/client/win/webview2.idl or a corresponding type library.
    I intend to use the WebView2 control from another language that C++. For this I can use an idl file or a type library, but not a C++ header file.

  2. Log a message when a site is only supporting TLS 1.0 or 1.1

    Migrated from Edge Bug report: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/21312153/
    ________________________________________________________

    It would be nice if Edge DevTools could log a message for sites that are running on TLS 1.0 or 1.1.

    As we get closer to disabling TLS 1.0 and 1.1, we should log a message to the console for sites that do not speak TLS 1.2 (or 1.3), and link to a useful resource, perhaps https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2018/10/15/modernizing-tls-edge-ie11/, and better docs in the future as we have them.

    We just landed a similar thing in Firefox Nightly, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1512505, the message we ended up with was: "This site uses a deprecated version…

  3. 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)

  4. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. view localStorage quota from webpages

    Because there was a bug in Edge, I was not able to save more than 50-100kb of data in the localStorage (on every webpage/domain!).
    It was impossible for me to find out why and finished to reset completely the Edge app. So I lost all my cookies, passwords and so on.

    Never found out why Edge had this problem and I am sure other people are leaving Edge for similar problems. Maybe it would be nice to see why my localStorage was limited to 50kb. Maybe a domain used 100MB and then no other was able to save data anymore…

  11. 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.

  13. Allow developers to add privateNetworkClientServer to Edge

    Testing Edge on localhost can sometimes be a pain. Especially when we load resources from CDNs (like our own). In a mixed localhost / cdn Environment one will always see "This Internet Explorer instance does not have privateNetworkClientServer capabilities", which is a) misleading, since i'm using edge, not IE and is frustrating, since there is no internal Workaround. Fiddler allows me to remap mylocalhost to localhost, which solves the Problem, but I - as a developer - would like to just use it for development, as I do with all my other Browsers.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. dark theme

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. Add option to Edit and Resend the HTTP request

    When using the Network tab in Edge Developer Tools, it would be cool to have Edit and Resend request option (something similar to what Firefox offers).

  19. Add folders to F12 Dev Tool Script Sources

    When you're working with multiple scripts, especially with source maps (eg from TypeScript) Google Chrome dev tools shows a folder structure in the left hand side of the sources tab. IE F12 developer tools just shows a list of all the .js files.....

    This is incredibly difficult to navigate! Especially if you have two or more files with the same name, in different folders (for us, it's _index.js and _module.js)....

    Can you please add a folder like tree structure, mimicking the behaviour in Chrome Dev Tools?

  20. 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.)
