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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Display: contents

      Display: contents is incredibly useful when working with grid and flexbox. It is already implemented in Firefox and works really well.
      It allows ancestors that are not direct children to become flex-items or grid-items.

      • Suport "appearance: none" for <input>

        Would be nice if Edge supports appearance (or -webkit-appearance) set as 'none' for <input> elements, like radio or checkbox.

        • Implement CSS `display: flow-root` (modern clearfix)

          `display: flow-root` is a modern way to force a block to be a formatting context that floated elements are contained in (aka clearfix).

          From the spec [1]:

          > The element generates a block container box, and lays out its contents using flow layout. It always establishes a new block formatting context for its contents.

          Tab Atkins and Elika Etemad (fantasai) from CSSWG consider the feature stable enough to be implemented [2].

          • Add support for CSS printing hints

            Other browsers support some level of CSS hints for printing to hint to the browser to use landscape over portrait, and what margins to use.

                              and

                              • Implement caret-color support

                                "caret-color" has just been implemented on Chromium and Firefox. It'd be really nice if Edge can support it too.

                                The spec is CR: https://www.w3.org/TR/css-ui-3/#caret-color

                                And there are already 21 tests on the W3C csswg-test repo: http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css-ui-3/section/6.2.1/

                                  • Implement sideways-rl and sideways-lr values for CSS Writing Modes.

                                    The Writing Mode property has been implemented and updated in the current version of Edge, but it only includes the values of horizontal-tb, vertical-lr and vertical-rl. Two more values provide an easier way for authors to typeset text in a sideways orientation. They are currently implemented in Firefox (since Sept 2015).

                                    • Transform bug with scrollbars

                                      When I move a div out of its parent using absolute positioning, and move it back into parent using transform, the scrollbars are still there, resulting in a blank scroll area! (the parent is overflow:auto or scroll) According to the w3c's specification, the scrollbars should disapear which just happens in chrome and firefox.
                                      The specification is as follows:
                                      For elements whose layout is governed by the CSS box model, the transform property does not affect the flow of the content surrounding the transformed element. However, the extent of the overflow area takes into account transformed elements. This behavior is similar…

                                      • Support pseudo elements in <input>

                                        This feature would add support for ::before and ::after pseudo elements in <input> elements. Chrome, Opera, and Safari already support using pseudo elements to embellish inputs without the need for JavaScript and extra divs.

                                        • image-orientation

                                          Add support for image-orientation:from-image. This will allow photos captured on Windows 10 Mobile devices to be displayed with the correct orientation.

                                          To demonstrate the issue, see: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/Windowsapps/en-US/78294ed7-7258-4ef2-b90c-2de237f93ba1/uwpxamlhmtl-webview-displaying-captured-photos-with-incorrect-orientation-on-windows-10-mobile?forum=wpdevelop
