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".

  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)

    • 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…

      • 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

        • 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.)

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Console: show web workers

                  Take a look at the Chrome console: You can switch the current context from the main thread to every web worker which got created. This is extremely useful for debugging workers.

                  • Console.log() -> support for multiple, comma separated arguments

                    it is kind of annoying to get outputs like "test [Object object]".
                    this is implemented in Chrome, Safari & FF for a long time already.

                    • Display non-enumerable object members in the console and Watches / Locals

                      This feature would mirror what Chrome DevTools has, where non-enumerable members of evaluated objects are displayed in the console and Watches / Locals. To signify they are non-enumerable, the member names are greyed out.

                      • Unable to Undo code change in the Debugger.

                        I made a change to a javascript code in the Debugger and unable to figure out how to undo the change without refreshing the Edge browser. There should be an undo button (or a re-do button)

                        • Debugger Change downloadscript to the actual file name downloaded

                          Took me a long time to figure which "downloadscript" that I need to debug from. I don't want to use the tooltip to search for my javascript code. Use of "downloadscript" is a very bad idea. Chrome and Firefox shows actual javascript file name.

                          • Developer's Account

                            Hi, I was trying to create a developer's account and the account type was already selected for me as a business, I tried to change it to an individual but it won't let me. Anytime when I sign in with Microsoft account and try to sing up for developer's account, the account type is already selected and I can't change it. So I stopped there, I didn't create the account. How can I change that to an individual?

                              • Bring back classic ASP with jscript

                                I'm the founder of a company producing a web based EHR on classic ASP with jscript (not vbscript) since 2001. I've looked at and tried almost every platform that was or is since then (java, PHP, ASP.NET, Ruby/Rails, node, python, scala, go) and have yet to find a superior development platform.

                                Instead of using vbscript, we chose to use jscript. As the universal language of web development, javascript is now the only language my programmers need to know for both client and server, and every web programmer knows javascript. So, I don't have any problem finding developers. I also don't…

                                • Option to auto-scroll in Network Debugger

                                  Please add an option(toggle) to enable auto-scroll in the Network section of the debugger. When trying to analyse api calls it's very annoying the trigger actions in the webpage and the scroll to the end of the list in the network debugger.

                                    • Always show most recent console messages

                                      At the moment it's really annoying to always have to manually scroll to the bottom of the console to see the most recent messages, especially when trying to debug this way.

                                      Please let the console auto scroll or stick to the bottom so the most recent messages are always displayed

                                      • It's really hard to improve my site's performance in Edge without flame graphs

                                        The performance tools in Firefox and Chrome both have flame graphs and improving performance there is really easy. Our site is an order of magnitude slower in Edge but we have no idea why because the performance panel just says the time is being taken up by JavaScript without telling us anything else.

                                        I assume this is already on your roadmap because I have no idea how developers at Microsoft are able to improve the performance of their web apps in Edge otherwise. Consider this a strong vote for this feature. When this is implemented, +1000 points for using an…
