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.

    • Only Allow AppCache over HTTPS

      AppCache should be removed from insecure contexts. Since AppCache allows offline and persistent access to an origin, this can be an XSS attack vector that can be exploited

      • Update documentation on U2F support in Chrome, Opera and Firefox

        The website wrongly states that Chrome, Opera, and Firefox do not support U2F, which is wrong. In the case of Chrome, it's been implemented for several years. In fact, Edge is the only major browser that does not support this. Please update the docs to reflect this.

            • Block Cross-Origin <a download>

              While Microsoft Edge mitigates the impact of cross-origin downloads by changing the file extension, it is still a risk and the presence of the download attribute on anchor elements with cross-origin attributes should still be ignored

              • Include TLS security. Most websites require it now, so I have had to stop using Microsoft edge for web browsing.

                Include TLS security in Microsoft Edge. I have had to install Google Chrome to use the Internet as almost all sites now require TLS security to visit or view.

                • Write Edge in managed code

                  I know you've tried to GC the native code, but it's not enough.

                  There are still UAF bugs. There are still type bugs. It's time to put an end to them once and for all. Write in managed code. We know that Microsoft can create environments that are type safe; it's time to actually use one.

                  • Add a new flag allow-top-navigation-with-gesture

                    An already established standard (https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/browsers.html#attr-iframe-sandbox-allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation), this new flag requires top-level browsing context navigation from a sandboxed iframe only through gesture. This prevents malicious auto-redirection from 3rd party content while still allowing top-level navigation

                        • Support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT

                          TLS 1.3, the next version of security protocol for private and authenticated communication, is in the final phase of specification.
                          Cloudflare already supports it, Chrome 56 plans to support it January 2017 and Firefox in March 2017.
                          Edge should not stay behind and support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT as well, ideally in the upcoming Creator's Update already.

                              • ad-blockers, site-blockers and Google Search

                                Until Edge has support for plugins like adblock plus and Youtube Channel Blocker, its useless. The internet is a messy place. Using Edge without these, you get flooded with ads and can't actually see the content. Ads can contain phishing software and keystealers (BitDefender reports) and its not advisable to surf without these tools.

                                  • Bring back HTTP-Authentication (Basic Authentication) credential storing checkbox

                                    Edge is useless without the checkbox to store HTTP-Auth credentials.

                                    The workaround by adding sites with Internet Explorer to the trusted sites to then get this checkbox in Edge is ridicoulus.
