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.

  1. isPointInStroke

    It would be fantastic if you could support the canvas context isPointInStroke method as per Chrome, Firefox, Safari.

    It is by far the easiest way to do hollow-object arbitrary path-based hit testing (way easier than the unbelievably challenging, bounding-box-based hit testing proposed in the standard).

    At the moment, we have some rather poor fallback code for IE/Edge that approximates it using a bit of iteration over isPointInPath().

    • SVG Title element multiline

      Tooltip currently does render, however is only all on one line.

      <svg height="140" width="500">
      <ellipse cx="200" cy="80" rx="100" ry="50" >
      <title>this
      is multi
      line</title>
      </ellipse>
      </svg>

      Thanks.

      • Add a DirectWrite Anti-aliasing Tuner for IE/Edge

        Chrome and Opera (both based from Chromium) use Natural Symmetric and Outline for larger text but they have no Advanced DirectWrite parameters to tweak font rendering. Firefox has DirectWrite parameters in about:config and it's complex but can be simplified by installing anti-aliasing tuner extension. IE has terrible font rendering. IE9 font rendering can be tweaked by installing AATIE plugin but AATIE plugin won't work in IE10 and IE11. We Hope IE/Edge will have built-in DirectWrite Anti-Aliasing Tuner to give us the choice of tweaking DirectWrite font rendering in a very simple manner. It should include the ability to use Outline…

        • Implement CanvasProxy according to the spec

          Transferable CanvasProxy has been fully-specced for a while now. Along with constructable CanvasRenderingContext2D and WebGLRenderingContext, it allows rendering to a canvas element safely from another thread.

          This would be an amazing performance advantage for graphics. Take the plunge!

          • APNG (animated PNG) images support [Firefox and Safari 8 support it]

            APNG is an extension of the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format, adding support for animated images. It is intended to be a replacement for simple animated images that have traditionally used the GIF format, while adding support for 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency. APNG is backwards-compatible with PNG; any PNG decoder should be able to ignore the APNG-specific chunks and display a single image.

            GIF vs. APNG vs. animated WebP: http://littlesvr.ca/apng/gif_apng_webp.html
            Support status: http://caniuse.com/#feat=apng (Firefox and Safari 8 support APNG)
            Specification: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Animated_PNG_graphics

                                Add a textDecoration attribute to canvas 2D contexts, behavior similar to existing "font" attribute: It's a DOMString, parsed the same way as corresponding CSS property (text-decoration).
