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".

      • 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…

        • Allow copying computed CSS values

          Currently, I only have the option to right click and choose Copy from the menu, which copies the whole `property: value` pair. I would like to be able to copy just the value so that I don't have to delete the `property: ` part every time.

          • Element highlighting on SVG elements

            Support element highlighting on SVG elements. Currently, the blue outline of elements doesn't appear on SVG elements, which makes it difficult to debug display issues of SVGs.

            • In debugger, fix inspecting variables in mapped source code

              When I'm debugging mapped source files and I hover over variable, I want to see the variable value.

              Let's say I have ES2015 or TypeScript souce code, babelified, minimized and browserified. In chrome I can debug the original source code and inspect the variables. I would love to see it in Edge too.

                • Bind Ctrl+P to open a file/command

                  Change the Ctrl+P to show a GoTo/Command terminal. Pretty much what VSCode does.

                  • ReactJS (and possibly Redux) tooling

                    I would love to see some tooling surrounding ReactJS development. While I believe that on your competitors (Chrome/Firefox) these were developed by the community (or the vendor themselves...FB). I would love to see a CTA by Microsoft for this to be developed possibly following the example of Taylor Otwell surrounding his CTA to have Vue.js testing abilities added to the library.

                    Granted if Microsoft were to build the tools that would be amazing, but I don't think (in the day and age where Microsoft is so open source) that Microsoft calling on the community for a specific task should be…

                    • GPS override in F12 should support geo-location of an actual address

                      The GPS override in F12 requires GPS coordinates which are a nuisance to look up. There should be an edit control that uses the Bing Maps APIs to map any address or valid location name to GPS coordinates that get used. This way someone could enter an address such as "One Microsoft Way, 98052" and have this work.

                        • User agent selection in F12 should be improved

                          The F12 tools should improve how the user-agent override is exposed in two ways.

                          For Custom, the edit control is too tiny. It should be a large, even multi-line control with wrap. The existing control is too small to see any reasonable user-agent.

                          For all other selections, F12 doesn't display the value used. My suggestion is to all use the same multi-line control suggested above but that the control is read-only when any value other than custom is selected. Make sure that it is read-only but not disabled so that users can select and copy the value that will be…

                              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.

                                      • Put the console.log source at the same line on the topright corner

                                        When you do a console.log("hello"), then the text "hello" will be outputted to the console, and then there will also be outputted a "source-link" below that line which can take you to the sourcecode and line of where that console.log was executed.

                                        So if you do 5 console.log, then there will be 10 lines because of the source-link

                                        Can you put the source-link to the right or top-right corner on every log, because that would save many lines and be more readable.

                                        That is was Chrome does.

                                        • Group event handlers by handler name

                                          Grouping tags under specific handlers will make navigation easier and avoid all unnecessary work searching for the handler that trigger a specific event
