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.

    • img decoding attribute

      https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/embedded-content.html#attr-img-decoding

      > Decoding of large images can block the main thread for hundreds of milliseconds or more, interrupting fluid animations and user interaction. Currently, there's no way for a web author to specify that they want an image to be decoded asynchronously, so there are scenarios where it is impossible to avoid UI stalls.

      Thus the new `decoding` attribute for the `img` element, with possible values:

      * `sync`: Indicates a preference to decode this image synchronously for atomic presentation with other content.

      * async: Indicates a preference to decode this image asynchronously to avoid delaying presentation of other content.

      *…

      • ORTC/WebRTC: add VP8 RTP PictureID

        Hello,
        it seems that ORTC/WebRTC stack does not add VP8 RTP PictureID [1] which is needed by Switching Mixer Media Servers [2] to properly perform its rewriting when RTP flow switchings take place in order to avoid some issues in clients (eg: Chrome) that depend on it.

        Could it be added as feature request?

        Thanks in advance!!

          • 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

              • Allow copying computed CSS values

                Currently, I only have the option to right click and choose Copy from the menu, which copies the whole `property: value` pair. I would like to be able to copy just the value so that I don't have to delete the `property: ` part every time.

                  Would be nice if Edge supports appearance (or -webkit-appearance) set as 'none' for <input> elements, like radio or checkbox.

                    • File API support for extensions

                      One great addition to Edge extensions would be the ability to write files .

                      There are of course security issues related to reading or writing files to the file system, but at some point, Edge will support the Downloads API (6 out of the 20 most popular Firefox extensions rely on this API). This API (chrome.downloads) allows to write a file to the Downloads folder out of an external URL. Why not then allow an extension to generate files limited to that folder ?

                      That would allow saving videos (some streaming protocols need processing so the Downloads API is not…

                          • Position fixed breaks position sticky

                            When position fixed is layered below a position relative element. The position sticky inside the position relative breaks. See codepen linked below for an example, remove the element with the class "breaks-it" to see the difference. The same example seems to work fine on Chrome and Firefox. Thanks

                                    The Internationalization WG observes that Edge does not pass the tests found here:

                                    See https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/counter-styles.en.html (click on the large text in the left-most column to run the tests)

                                    Several groups have observed the need for counter style support. The Arabic Layout TF finds that it is needed for Persian support. Richard Ishida reports that vertical text lists require it as well. Firefox is observed to provide this support.

                                        Can I download Edge version 13 on Windows 10? If so, do I have to uninstall Edge 14 first? This is for compatibility testing.

                                        • support web components (v1) standard

                                          web components standard present a modern way to create cross-framework compatible components. This should reduce the effort and cost of many enterprise companies that build their own component library and porting frameworks.
