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. 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.

    • 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…

            • Microsoft Edge DevTools Protocol:Browser setters and geters for WindowBounds, WindowState and AddressBar visibility.

              Methods should be added to set and get window bounds, state and address bar visibility.

              E.G. in chrome:
              Browser.setWindowState()
              Browser.getWindowState()
              Browser.setWindowBounds()
              Browser.getWindowBounds()
              and the command line argument --app="<address>"

              These allow us to make desktop applications using Edge and I feel this is pretty vital especially as a modern replacement for the IE COM API.

                • Visual Studio + Edge + TypeScript Debugging

                  I was so excited to hear that we could finally debug JavaScript from within Visual Studio using Edge. I wrongly assumed this meant TypeScript too, but it does not appear to work.

                  • Mozilla Firefox has the ability to show many rows and columns of tiles when a new tab is selected (These are customizable with favourites).

                    Mozilla Firefox has the ability to show many rows and columns of tiles when a new tab is selected These are customizable with favourites on the new tab page. This is in an extension in Firefox. Very useful, much more useful than just the eight tiles on a new tab page which is currently in Edge

                          • 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…

                              • Add console.hex() to be able to log binary data to the console

                                With binary data becoming more and more common in the browser, thanks to ArrayBuffers and TypedArrays and all the specifications that use them, we need to be able to properly log these data types to the console.

                                On the surface this is possible with console.log(), but is that is severely lacking when it comes to binary data. So I would like to propose the ability to log binary data in the classic hex dump format. Having a console.hex() command in the browser would certainly my my life of lot easier and probably a lot of others that work with binary…

                                • EXPAND or COLLAPSE ALL when viewing "Elements"

                                  It would be helpful to allow for Expansion and/or Collapsing of all Elements in the editor script. Various reasons to implement would assist in preserving data as viewed. Example: law enforcement initiatives require memorialization of pages and/or profiles and posts but when a page has been deleted or relocated, the source code in its entirety easily saved as a text file would afford a faster way to recreating than the lengthy process of requesting whether the web host maintained the data.

                                  • Make the element finder work with standard selectors

                                    If trying to search for an id by using the selector #myID, nothing will be found, only by entering myID, but this might return text elements, classes, and all sorts of other things that are undesirable. Should also be able to search by classes, xpath etc.

Edge also can do this now with PDFs. The next logical step, from my point of view as a developer, is to let webpage javascript get information from these highlights. For instance, lets suppose I use html 'frames tag' to host one webpage in another. My user highlights the page (or HTML) in that frame, and an event fires letting me capture the text that he highlighted. Conversely, if my code…

                                        • Allow copying computed CSS values
