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.

  1. 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

        • Canvas 2D Font kerning support

          Actually renderingContext2D fillText and strokeText do not support embedded font kerning information in fonts.
          This makes microsoft based text on canvas looks different from all other browsers.

          Would be nice to support it

                  • WebGL Shader Binary Caching

                    Fairly trivial to implement, and Chrome does this well. Simply caching the shader binaries means subsequent compilations can be skipped and cached binaries loaded.
                    For web pages loading significant shader programs, this can be a huge improvement.

                    • OffscreenCanvas

                      From MDN: The OffscreenCanvas interface provides a canvas that can be rendered off screen. It is available in both the window and worker contexts.

                      From me: It would be great to prepare images and run WebGL without tying up the UI thread.

                      • ImageBitmap

                        Support the ImageBitmap interface: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/ImageBitmap
                        This includes createImageBitmap() with the options object (with settings like premultiplyAlpha). This is useful for better performance for preparing images for use in a canvas. In particular it helps speed up WebGL texture uploads, since the decode & premultiply step can be done asynchronously in advance instead of inside the texImage2D() call.

                        It will also unblock other APIs like the "imagebitmap" rendering context and OffscreenCanvas.

                          Give users the ability to use custom themes to truly personalize their Microsoft edge. I have been looking for a Clone Army 501st Legion Star Wars theme for the Longest Time.

                                      Edge only supports msToBlob() currently. Please support standard toBlob().

                                        • Alert the user of a general problem with a particular website

                                          A similar feature was already present in Google Chrome. When you access a site that is experiencing difficulties of access for multiple users an error message would be displayed informing you of the widespread problem affecting other users.
                                          This feature would be interesting for developers and users that have to make sure that the problem is not related to the user, but the website.
