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.

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.

  1. The website pop up ads on Edge have become unbearable

    Ads on websites have become literally unbearable. They often pop up and cover the content. Please do something about this.

  3. Support the Device Memory API

    It’s still in development, but the Device Memory API (https://github.com/w3c/device-memory) would be a relatively easy implementation that could enable "lite" versions of page assets.

  4. Hide the "Make a Web Note" button. Or just pleas let me hide the useless button on the top right.

    I want to hide the useless buttons for making a web not, hub? and the share button. I will never use these and its an eye sore. I like Edge more than Chrome and I won't switch back to Chrome if these ridiculous buttons were gone.

  7. Dynamic CSS transform animations janky on mousemove event

    Currently, Edge will prioritize user events for responsiveness/performance. https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2017/06/01/input-responsiveness-event-loop-microsoft-edge/#BmaPczGdg4dDGHDA.97

    It would appear that this causing issues when trying to update layout/rendering on a mousemove/pointermove event.

    The result is janky animations. Check out the plunk in Edge and Chrome.

    https://plnkr.co/edit/eCDkPjvEKWTpMirkXgV8?p=preview

    Chrome is very smooth, whereas Edge/IE11/FireFox stutter on the mousemove event.

  8. Improve "Laginess feel" when using Edge

    When using edge, the overal feel is very laggy, making me switch back to chrome. When I move tabs, scroll, navigate between pages, the experience should feel smooth and not "snappy" as it is now.

  11. don't load tabs at startup until clicked

    It would be nice if, as with other well known browsers, when I start Edge with my previous tabs not loaded until I click on one of them. It would result on a faster startup loading, especially if like me, I end up having 20/30 tabs opened at each session.

  12. make it so Edge opens on the screen that you close it on if using more than one monitor.

    Make it so Edge opens on the screen that you close it on if using more than one monitor. so you can decide which monitor you want to use it on, and not just the main one.

  13. Limit non selected tab use of resources. I.E. No audio/video processing

    My browsing generally consists of center mouse button clicking of topics that interest me, after reading a page I will close it and go onto another page.

    I suggest any back ground page that had objects that are trying to output audio or video be placed into suspend mode.

    I.E. I know I have too many tabs open when my laptop starts muttering at me or the CPU fan kicks in.

  14. Cache images without etags and/or 2 year expiries

    Images without etags and/or cache expiry dates 2 years in the future are rarely cached. I don't know if it is the lack of etags or the 2 year expiry or both that is causing the behaviour.

    This means Edge requests the images every time you visit a page with such images making it much slower.

    Edge does send an if modified since request if you hit refresh and gets 304s back so ironically it canbe faster to refresh a page than click the URL again because a refresh will not reload all the images.

    I logged this as a…

  16. Touchpad pinch zooming should be smoother just like touchscreen zooming

    If you zoom in on a webpage using pinch zooming from the touchpad, there is a noticeable frame-by-frame lag, unlike the Mail app, in which pinch zooming is VERY smooth.

    Note: I'm talking about the touchpad, not touchscreen.

  17. Improve stability when using Skype For Business

    Fix whatever issues are related to using Edge when also using Skype For Business. I get random screen freezing (monitor freezes, and I have to change display settings-if it's not my primary screen or reboot to get it working again). As well, the new Skype For Business screen sharing has caching issues if you aren't in a conference (just doing peer to peer with VBSS) if I have been using Edge.

    If I stick to Chrome or IE only, these issues don't occur. I'm not sure if the issue is in Edge or Skype For Business 2016, but if I…

  19. Improve performance of Math.sqrt()

    Compare the test run count for Math.sqrt of IE11 vs Chrome at http://jsperf.com/math-sqrt-vs-newton-raphson-method.
    However, IE11 beats both Chrome and FF in Newton Raphson method test (root).

  20. Allow common js, css, and font libraries to be *installed*

    The web abounds with popular js and css libraries that are constantly downloaded and sometimes cached by the browser. My suggestion is that MS extend the caching concept to make these libraries installable, in a manner similar to a plugin or extension.

    Examples include jquery, Bootstrap, Foundation, Skel, and numerous icon fonts like font awesome, glyphicons, and so forth. These could be installed permanently by the user, with an option for automatic updates. For something like jquery, several different versions are probably necessary. Note that if this feature is implemented, there will be incentive for web developers to converge on…
