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. [EPUB Reader] JavaScript in EPUB3 doesn't work

    [EPUB Reader] JavaScript in EPUB3 doesn't work

    Javascript doesn't seem to work in EPUB.
    I use a little script to have radio buttons accessible (source from: https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/WD-wai-aria-practices-1.1-20170628/examples/radio/radio-2/radio-2.html)
    When I open my xhtml file in Edge, everything is OK but in my EPUB, radio buttons don't work.

    • PLEASE put a "remember this decision" checkbox for Flash Player like Firefox

      I could justify this all I want but in short: websites still use flash and some will never be updated. Some are for education as well. Just give us an option to enable the button/checkbox in the advanced settings.

      • Allow Edge to be updated on its own

        Microsoft isn’t updating Edge via the Store as originally promised. Edge updates seem to be held back for major new versions of Windows 10, unlike Windows 10’s other included apps, which are updated more regularly. A good example is the big Nov 2015 Windows update which is the only way to get Edge 25 with EdgeHTML 13 including the drag & drop file fix.

        As a web developer I can safely assume Firefox and Chrome users are on the latest version (we don't support the versions pre auto-update). I can't for Edge because major Windows updates are non-trivial and not…

          • Add "Always Allow" to Adobe Flash popup

            Now in Edge (Windows 10 1809), enabling Flash for a website doesn't persist after closing the page as it did before the update. The option "Allow Once" is the only option available -- "Always Allow" is not shown -- so every time you open a site you must re-allow Flash

            • Cursor on a new tab

              Cursor on a new tab should be automatically on the address bar, so once the new tab is opened, no need to click on the address bar to enter URL. Rather the user can directly start writing on the URL after opening the tab.

              • Please open-source Edge.

                I would really like Edge to succeed and stay competitive in the browser market. However, at the rate of features being added and bugs being fixed, it doesn't seem like that's going to happen.

                Please consider open-sourcing Edge to allow the community to help bring it up to speed faster.

                (As a side note, it seems like the Android version of Edge has better feature support than the desktop version, especially for WebRTC. I don't know what that's about.)

                • Group Policy to disable PDF reader

                  Currently Edge takes over the default PDF reader even after Acrobat or another reader is chosen. Please add a GPO to totally disable the PDF reader in Edge.

                  • Previous domain button

                    No browser to my knowledge support back/forward button for domains. I'm suggesting this be added to Edge. The idea is that after being on some site for a while, visiting many pages on that site, that I want to now go back to the previous site not simply the previous page.

                    This is low hanging fruit and something I've wondered about for many years.

                      • Implement Intelligent Tracking Protection (ITP) as in Safari, or equivalent protection

                        A user-agent should act to protect its user's best interest. ITP is a sensible compromise between no privacy and ad-blocking since it enables advertising without abandoning data protection. Since there is no existing standard, Edge could experiment with an approach different from ITP, but it's a good starting point (and does not break the Web).

                        • side by side browsing like "side view"

                          side by side browsing like firefox's new "side view" - this feature would make life easier on widescreens and extend continuum/w10 phone usefulness - use a lot of web-based services but hoping between tabs is painful. I am learning to code and firefox side view is a godsend
                          implement/allow on windows phone mobile (can be landscape only)

                            As an education customer, we do not want students to be able to delete browser history. Chrome and IE both have a Group Policy setting to prevent that. Could a Group Policy setting like IE's "Prevent access to Delete Browsing History" be added for Edge, please?

                                Microsoft would not allow me to approve the Tor download so I have it on a 16 gig usb port. Now whenever I restart my computer I have to completely refigure it, the Tor Browser has to be once again placed in the tool bar and I can't make it my main browser. maybe im just missing something simple but I am so frustrated.

                                  Edge is supposed to be UWP!? Then why can't I choose it as the assigned app when setting up an Assigned Access Account in Windows 10 Pro? Edge really needs to support this Windows 10 feature. We are currently forced to download a third party browser app from the store to use a browser in this mode.

                                  • Hide Internet Explorer icons from the taskbar and the desktop

                                    Hello,

                                    When I do support for customers of my SaaS company, I see that many of them who are not tech-savvy cannot differentiate between one browser or another, let alone between IE and Edge. They do not have a preference for one of the two even though it makes a huge difference for us, web developers, when it comes to web standard or supported technologies.

                                    I understand IE must still be supported for a long time because of technologies that were removed in the first version of Edge, but would it be possible, for the next big update, to "hide"…

                                    • view frame source

                                      please add view frame source, reload and reload frame in the right click popup menu, why do developers have to ask for elementary things to be implemented when they already exist for years in Chrome and FF ? I want to try Edge only because it is faster but every time I do I just rush back to Chrome, please provide the same developer freedom as Chrome has before claiming that Edge is better, speed alone will not cut it, every time I am in Edge I feel like my hands are in handcuffs.

                                        • Implement `prefetch-src` CSP directive

                                          In order to block potential data leaks through prefetch requests, it was decided [1] that a `prefetch-src`CSP directive would be added and control such requests, and that prefetch requests would have their own `Request.initiator` and an empty string destination[2].

                                          [1] https://github.com/w3c/webappsec-csp/issues/107
                                          [2] https://github.com/whatwg/fetch/pull/659
