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".

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. 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).

    • Assigned Access

      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.

      • 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?

        • 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"…

          • Add support for RFC4709: Mounting Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) Servers

            Right now, getting people to mount a webdav folder involves and end user following various complicated instructions to manually mount the server using "Add network location".

            What should be possible is for the end user to click on a link, and have the process kicked off as if they used the "Add a network location" and entered a webdav endpoint.

            This will drastically reduce the administrative burden of configuring webdav drives, in an RFC compliant manner.

              Either go back to original format or allow users to adjust width of bar

              • 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

                        • 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.

                          • boomarks organization

                            The bookmarks managing section is really poor. Hard to organize. Cannot move, delete or edit multiple links at the same time.
                            Can we have a way of manipulating links and folders more like we do with files? Select multiple links at a time to be moved, sorted, etc.

                                • Arabic text in alert() should appear in RTL by default

                                  When using an alert()-statement in which arabic text is included (like alert("דךגלכחדךלגיכלגדיכ\nלחידליגדלכדגכ\nלחידלגיכ");
                                  ) , the alignment of the message will appear in Left-To-Right (LTR), unless you specify the direction in the html-attribute. Chrome detects automatically, that these characters need RTL-direction and shows them accordingly in RTL directly.

                                  • Group Policy for MS Edge to set a homepage but, allow users to change it. Like GPP Registry

                                    Currently, there is a GPO that would allow admin to set a homepage for MS EDGE, this however locks down the users ability to change the homepage.
                                    When you zoom in to the registry where the homepage is set, it has a warning: It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy

                                    Example:

                                    Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected - It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy]

                                    • Edge browser should be separately downloaded

                                      Edge browser should be downloaded separately rather than being integrated with Windows.

                                      More extensions are required.

                                      • I wish to prevent Edge from offering word assists. I am taking an online course and this disrupts my learning exercise

                                        I am using Edge to do online work as part of a language course. I do not want edge to always offer words when I select an input box.
