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. RTC Data Channels

    Data channels allow a web application to send and receive generic application data peer-to-peer.

    This feature request is specifically about the *data channel* component of the WebRTC specification. This is separate from Object RTC and WebRTC 1.0 feature requests because the Platform Status site breaks out data channels separately.

      • Websocket - support for custom headers for handshake

        please consider adding ability to add custom headers for handshake. In RFC6455 there one interesting point:

        The request MAY include any other header fields, for example, cookies [RFC6265] and/or authentication-related header fields such as the |Authorization| header field [RFC2616], which are processed according to documents that define them. I've found an example how to add custom header to handshake: https://blog.heckel.xyz/2014/10/30/http-basic-auth-for-websocket-connections-with-undertow/ but this is for Java and unfortunately isn't possible in HTML5.

        When searching over the net I found many places question about this option, for example: sta/websocket-sharp#22 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4361173/http-headers-in-websockets-client-api/4361358#4361358 aspnet/SignalR#888

        For example in Python this is possible https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15381414/sending-custom-headers-in-websocket-handshake. Other languages…

              • Raise the connection timeout for slow connections as many sites don't show up at all.

                On Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 on PC (using 3G networks), on limited bandwidth (64kbit/s), many websites will refuse to load at all, as Edge Closes the Connection as it times out. This worked fine with Opera on Windows 10, Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.1 and also works fine on Android's major browsers (Chrome, FF).
                I suggest, the timeout should be raised on low-speed connections to allow the user to access websites at all. Adding a picture quality Setting would really not hurt either. I think this problem must be affecting many people who are on low-speed Internet.

                  • SSL key logging (aka SSLKEYLOGFILE)

                    SSL key logging is a feature that browsers export TLS keys into a text file, which can be used by Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffic. This feature can be enabled on Firefox and Chrome by setting SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable, which is a path to the log file.

                    This feature is useful for debugging network error and for learning structures of TLS-encrypted application layer protocols (such as encrypted HTTP/2) with Wireshark.

                    • TCP raw sockets

                      Please support the upcoming Raw Sockets API (not "web-sockets")
                      https://www.w3.org/TR/tcp-udp-sockets/
                      This enables a whole new class of applications!

                      Chrome does it already with "chrome.sockets.tcp"

                      THANKS!

                      • Support the application/vnd.api+json MIME type

                        The application/vnd.api+json MIME type is used by the JSON API (http://jsonapi.org/). Edge does not support it, so JSON API content does not render in the browser - instead, the browser thinks it's a binary format and tries to download it.

                        Also, as it is not supported, error pages that are returned in the JSON API format do not show up.

                          • Allow XMLHttpRequest to handle "data:..." URLs - like all other browsers

                            Currently on Edge (also on IE), trying to fetch a data-URL like "data:text/plain;charset=ISO...,...text..." fails - as it is considered cross-domain.
                            All other major browsers allow this.
                            This is useful for converting "exotic" charsets.

                                  • fix edge so that it can resolve computer name to localhost

                                    Through Edge, I can only access the localhost website via http://localhost.

                                    I cannot access the website using http://ComputerName . This works in all other browsers.

                                    • Support WebRTC Datachannels in Workers

                                      I would like to propose that we support WebRTC Data Channel in Workers
                                      (`WebWorker`, `ServiceWorker`, etc.)

                                      WebRTC DataChannel is basically a drop-in replacement for `WebSocket`,
                                      except it's peer-to-peer. For all the same reasons that `WebSocket`
                                      was added to the `Worker` spec, we should add WebRTC DataChannel.

                                      Here are some possible use cases:

                                      - DataChannel in a `ServiceWorker` would support the use case of "peer
                                      assisted delivery" a la [PeerCDN](https://www.peercdn.com/faq.html),
                                      CDN/P2P CDN video streaming delivery, file transfer, etc.

                                      - DataChannel in a `WebWorker` would support offloading CPU intensive
                                      data transfer and subsequent processing to another thread.

                                      - DataChannel in…

                                        • Windows10 won't open Brazil's online Banking called "Aplicativo Itaú" It is a security download from the Itaú bank. An error code SC170117

                                          needs a fix to be able to continue with online banking from the US. The Itaú bank is in Brazil, South America, and I have no trouble with Windows 7 performing the task.
