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".

    • Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer

      Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer.

      In Chrome and Firefox you can jump straight to a page with a URL Hashtag suffix.

      For example, to jump straight to page 9 of this Microsoft PDF, adding "#page=9" will take you directly there in Chrome/Firefox.

      http://abouttmc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Dynamics-365-for-Financials-Capabilities-Guide-TMC-2016-11.pdf#page=9

      However Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

      As a **developer**, I have pages coded to link to specific pages in PDFs that are up to 1,300 pages long... this is really frustrating for our end users.

      • Add print margin setting of None to correctly print full page HTML5 and PDFs.

        I work for a large well known Office Products company. Edge is not capable of correctly printing sheets of labels, business cards, and other products because of the inability to print full sized sheets correctly. This is because the "Narrow" margin choice clips the border of the sheet. With a setting of "None" this would be corrected. Google Chrome notices that if a page is exactly the size of the sheet of paper it does not rescale. Scaling of 100% could be applied without any margins. Newer printers are capable of having very small margins and even some print to…

              • Media Capabilities API

                The Media Capabilities API allows developers to determine decoding and encoding abilities of the device, exposing information such as whether media is supported and whether playback should be smooth and power efficient, with real time feedback about playback to better enable adaptive streaming, and access to display property information.

                * Spec: https://wicg.github.io/media-capabilities/

                * Explainer: https://github.com/WICG/media-capabilities/blob/master/explainer.md

                * MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Media_Capabilities_API

                Chrome, Safari, and Firefox all have Media Capabilities support.

                  • SDP Unified Plan

                    Per spec, Firefox only supports unified plan and Chrome has now aggressively started moving towards it. Chrome has started supporting both, will move to unified plan by default soon and expects to completely drop support for Plan B by 2019.

                    • PDF viewer doesn't support JBIG2

                      The built-in PDF viewer displays a noise pattern when attempting to view black/white images encoded as JBIG2. A lot of scanners produce files in this format for black/white scans, and all other PDF viewers seem to handle the format fine.

                      Happy to provide a sample file if required.

                        • ORTC/WebRTC: add VP8 RTP PictureID

                          Hello,
                          it seems that ORTC/WebRTC stack does not add VP8 RTP PictureID [1] which is needed by Switching Mixer Media Servers [2] to properly perform its rewriting when RTP flow switchings take place in order to avoid some issues in clients (eg: Chrome) that depend on it.

                          Could it be added as feature request?

                          Thanks in advance!!

                                    • Support the HTML Media Capture API

                                      Full support for the HTML Media Capture specification (W3C Candidate Recommendation 2014). This would allow simple access to the native video camera using '<input type="file" name="video" accept="video/*" capture>' on Windows Phone.

                                      Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/html-media-capture/
                                      (see "example 2" in spec)

                                      At the moment, the only way to do this is to create your own camera using the navigator.getUserMedia implementation, which is more complex and can differ per platform (UI and logic). The simpler input capture type already works on iOS, Android, and Blackberry providing a fully-functional native camera with requisite platform-specific look and feel.

                                      PS The HTML Media Capture API should not…

                                      • Flash Player is not working

                                        Microsoft Edge seems to be unable to recognize that Flash Player is already enabled in the settings after the new update of windows 10.

                                        • [EPUB Reader] EPUB3 MediaOverlays

                                          In English there are few mistakes in reading synthesized speech (TTS), but errors in other languages by all means will occur.
                                          For that reason, for textbooks in Japanese language of elementary school lower grades, recording with real voice is necessary.
                                          Currently it installs and plays playback software, but it is ideal if it can open directly by the browser and play it.
                                          Please support EPUB3 MediaOverlays playback.
