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. Open Local File with anchor

    We need to open a local html file with the default handler (in this case, it's edge).

    Unfortunatelly, edge is cutting all the query parameters and the anchor away.

    The following commands work for all the other browsers (including IE, Chrome and Firefox)

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello
    --> Resulting to file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello

    The edge interprets the command the following way:

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\LaunchWinApp.exe" "file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello"
    --> Resulting to file:///C:/Temp/test.html

    We need a workaround or a fix for this problem, otherwise we can't use the edge browser.

  2. search through open tabs with a hot key

    search through open tabs with a hotkey, this way
    users with lots of tabs open can find their way back to the tab instead of opening a new one / move tab to active window.

  4. Modernize Internet Explorer for the enterprise

    Provide a single web browser that can support legacy enterprise applications as well as modern web development practices and features.

    Internet Explorer continues to be the most used browser even on Windows 10 PCs at the enterprise I work for. This is a problem when I reach for modern browser APIs and features since IE stopped advancing when Edge came on the scene. A comparison of IE 11, Edge 18 and Chrome 73 paints a picture: https://caniuse.com/#compare=ie+11,edge+18,chrome+73

    I realize maintaining IE's backwards compatibility blotted it over the years but hey, it comes with Windows so it doesn't really matter. If…

  5. Chromiuim MRU

    Please add a MRU option for CTRL+TAB tab switching. For people who are doing work in the browser, having MRU tab switching order is as important as having MRU switching order in Windows itself.

    Just like how most people would find ALT+TAB completely useless in Windows if it just cycled through your windows in the order they appear on your taskbar, CTRL+TAB is pretty useless when it just cycles through tabs.

  6. Edge Chromium - Feedback

    Please make Google Translate Extension work with Edge Chromium
    Make Google and Bing Translate have right-click context menu for ease of use
    Reduce the spacing in Extension icons that are next to the address bar - too big

    Make extensions that are hidden in the menu not to come back to the tool bar, after you have disabled a different extension - what stays in the menu, stays there and doesn't come up unless you choose to bring it up

    Please consider replacing the word Favourites with Bookmarks

    Please change the Loading Icon animation/GIF that appears on top of the…

  7. Show both page numbers in PDF, actual page and page number of the PDF book

    Like in the Adobe Reader, one can specify both : page number based on count from starting page, or the page number of the book.

    For most of the times, teachers specify the range of page numbers to read from the book, but that doesn't align with the actual page number in the PDF.

    So due to this one has to manually srcoll up/down to find that page.

  10. Add Group Policy setting to disable delete browser history

    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?

  12. Address bar at bottom in Edge for Android / iOS

    Please create the possibility to display the address bar at the bottom.

    The handling would be made much easier and the browser could be operated with one hand. Alternatively you can take the function Home from the Chrome as an example.

  13. I want to love Edge, but I HATE it. Here is why. When I turn off location in W10, why does it contine to hound me that sites want my loc 1/3

    I want to love Edge, but I HATE it. Here is why. When I turn off location in Windows 10, why does it contine to f-ing hound me that sites want my location?

    If I go to full screen why does it ask me for every f-ing site if it is OK?

    And lastly, I NEVER want to allow ANY site to send me notification, yet I have NO control over any of these MORONIC annoyances.

    I would fire every one of your sorry, pathetic, ***** for not realizing that most people hat that ****.

  15. 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.

  16. [EPUB Reader] single-column, scrollable chapters (an additional contents display option)

    For the guide books that contain a lot of pictures (for example, various guides), the automatic switch between the single column and two column view is not parctical, because it keeps the figures relatively small. What's worse, sometimes the bottom part of the pictures is clipped by the bottom edge of the browser window.

    See this sample EPUB guide: http://wjaworski.pl/inne/sample.epub

    The solution, available in other EPUB readers (for example, in the iOS Ebooks) allows users to select the single-column, scrollable mode. It would be enough, if the reader shows the current chapter in this way (technically, chapters are the smallest…

  17. Bring Back Option to Share - Web Page - Send to Email - Default Mail Client (Outlook)

    In Internet Explorer, we could click File -- > Send --> Link by email. This would send the link of the page to the default mail client (Outlook). Please bring back this feature\option.

  18. [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.

  20. Permanently pin favorites

    Let users PERMANENTLY pin their favorites on right or left of the screen. It is pain to have to pin it everytime you open the browser. Pinning a few horizontally is NOT a solution as it takes up scrolling space.
