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.

  1. Canvas 2D Font kerning support

    Actually renderingContext2D fillText and strokeText do not support embedded font kerning information in fonts.
    This makes microsoft based text on canvas looks different from all other browsers.

    Would be nice to support it

  2. Browser Cloud

    Some SmartPhones I've already picked up had some forced-use defects, the phone's GPU didn't support keeping the games open for a long time, nor does the factory browser not run as before, the only one that really did in those conditions was browser called Puffin Web Browser, as it uses the cloud to reproduce the pages, did not feel crashes or anything, the only defect of the browser is the input lag.. I wanted to suggest this idea to you. Have you ever thought about her? With it, besides being lighter, it would not weigh, whatever the smarphone.

  3. Start implementing WebXR Device API

    The WebXR Device API is the future of WebVR/WebAR and is a must have for Mixed Reality devices and all other platforms. Google has started implementing this in the canary version. Please don't get behind.

  4. OffscreenCanvas

    From MDN: The OffscreenCanvas interface provides a canvas that can be rendered off screen. It is available in both the window and worker contexts.

    From me: It would be great to prepare images and run WebGL without tying up the UI thread.

  5. ImageBitmap

    Support the ImageBitmap interface: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/ImageBitmap
    This includes createImageBitmap() with the options object (with settings like premultiplyAlpha). This is useful for better performance for preparing images for use in a canvas. In particular it helps speed up WebGL texture uploads, since the decode & premultiply step can be done asynchronously in advance instead of inside the texImage2D() call.

    It will also unblock other APIs like the "imagebitmap" rendering context and OffscreenCanvas.

  6. Add the ability to use custom themes like chrome does or firefox does.

    Give users the ability to use custom themes to truly personalize their Microsoft edge. I have been looking for a Clone Army 501st Legion Star Wars theme for the Longest Time.

  10. APNG (animated PNG) images support [Firefox and Safari 8 support it]

    APNG is an extension of the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format, adding support for animated images. It is intended to be a replacement for simple animated images that have traditionally used the GIF format, while adding support for 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency. APNG is backwards-compatible with PNG; any PNG decoder should be able to ignore the APNG-specific chunks and display a single image.

    GIF vs. APNG vs. animated WebP: http://littlesvr.ca/apng/gif_apng_webp.html
    Support status: http://caniuse.com/#feat=apng (Firefox and Safari 8 support APNG)
    Specification: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Animated_PNG_graphics

  14. Alert the user of a general problem with a particular website

    A similar feature was already present in Google Chrome. When you access a site that is experiencing difficulties of access for multiple users an error message would be displayed informing you of the widespread problem affecting other users.
    This feature would be interesting for developers and users that have to make sure that the problem is not related to the user, but the website.

  19. Canvas2D text decoration

    Add a textDecoration attribute to canvas 2D contexts, behavior similar to existing "font" attribute: It's a DOMString, parsed the same way as corresponding CSS property (text-decoration).
