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.

  2. Make edge more one hand friendly on Android.

    Edge on Android is freakin awesome, but a little more refinement will make edge even more enjoyable to use.

    1. Move the home button to the navigation bar instead of having it at the to near the address bar.
    2. Make the hub more easier to reach, It is up top which make it hard to reach on big phones.
    3. On the tab page, bring the Tab selection header to the bottom.

  3. Issues with pronunciation of words when using Read Aloud feature.

    There are some issues with pronunciation of specific words when using the Read Aloud feature.
    Examples:
    Walkthrough
    SSIS
    SSAS
    SQL
    SQL." (gets read as "es kew el dot", but just the capitalisation should be read, not the period.)

    Also, American dates get read incorrectly (08.12.18 can be read as 8th of December or 12th of August depending on the language of the page).

  5. multi tabs

    for those who do a lot of searches, everyday we do a lot of searches, access a lot of web pages and jumping between them.
    the problem is : with the huge number of tabs we decide by the end of the day because of the chaos and the waste of the resources to close all of these tabs without reading it..

    i have an idea to solve this problem but i need to contact someone to discuss it

  7. Add copy link address / url to right-click menu

    This is a somewhat common daily use case for me. It is difficult for me to save every image and then host it to share it.

    Also, using the console commands to parse and filter the img URL is also difficult. E.g.

    > $$('img').forEach(function(element) { console.log(element.currentSrc);});

  8. Add VTTCue and WebVTT support

    WebVTT: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WebVTT_API
    VTTCue: https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/#the-vttcue-interface
    Supported by all other browser vendors in Chrome, FF, Safari.
    Also implement ::CUE pseudo-element to enable support in CVAA.
    Currently all player developers need to create their own subtitles/captions implementations due to browser having fragmented support in all of the above which makes supporting accessibility very hard and cumbersome.
    Having you support this will ensure better interoperability.
    Please consider migrating the solution to IE11 as well as you still have it on platforms which are widely supported and EOL is not near as it seems.

    Also opened as an issue in the platform tracker:
    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/14623778/

  9. Get Browser History

    How on earth do I go about getting Microsoft Edge's browser history programatically?

    I don't care what language we use I just need a starting point. Every modern day browser has a database file that can be read.

  10. Improve default focus style

    The default "dotted outline" style for elements with focus (e.g. links), is not particularly easy to see, especially if you have poor vision.

    Can this default be changed to look more like the focus style on OSX, which is a thick blue outline.

    You can see the difference by changing the "normal style" and "focus style" radio field at the top of this page:

  11. set aside sigle tab

    Some time you don't want to set aside all tabs, but only one. To do it now, you have to detach this tab, and on new window press "set these tabs aside" button. It would be great to have "Set aside" button in context menu of an individual tab.

  14. Word meaning

    while reading any blog/article, if we are not getting the meaning of a word we have to search for it on a new tab. If you could add a feature so that on selection of that word, we can get the meaning.

  16. Allow for the import of Outlook's contact list into Edge. This will make sending links to friends a lot easier.

    Make Outlooks contact list accessible in Edge, just as it is in Internet Explorer. This would make sending links by email in Edge much easier.

  17. History Search

    I love the new MS Edge browser. However, I think the history needs be searchable. It is a simple feature that could be added and it would improve the user experience

  18. Hide download dialog box

    There should be a way to minimize or hide the download dialog box. If the download takes some time the dialog box prevents interactions with some elements in a webpage.

  20. Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed

    Often when a page loads, loading indicator disappears very quickly, and I don't have visual feedback that somethings are being processed in background, I just get an empty page, and when I start to think that the link is dead or something else went wrong, page suddenly appears.

    Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed
