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. Proxy API support for extensions

    Proxy extensions such as SwitchyOmega needs Proxy API.
    It's not convenient to use IE proxy settings for more than one proxy server.
    We need proxy API. Chrome and Firefox have already support it many years ago.

      • SDP Unified Plan

        Per spec, Firefox only supports unified plan and Chrome has now aggressively started moving towards it. Chrome has started supporting both, will move to unified plan by default soon and expects to completely drop support for Plan B by 2019.

        https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=465349

        • Support Media Queries level 4 syntax improvements

          CSS Media Quries Level 4 bring in a bunch of syntactic improvements. They make media queries much more readable and maintainable.

          https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mq-syntax

          Here's an example:

          Before:

          @media (min-width: 20em), not all and (min-height: 40em) {
          @media not all and (pointer: none) {

          }
          }

          After:

          @media ((width >= 20em) or (height < 40em)) and (pointer) {

          }

          • Add an "IE Frame"-like Feature to Edge

            As a web developer, the fact that ~10% of my users still use IE11, and that its features are frozen in time from 2011, is a huge pain point preventing me from using many new web platform features. (Even with a progressive enhancement mindset, there are times when the IE experience has to be pretty close to the experience in other browsers. In those cases, using the new features often doesn't make sense — it would just mean implementing the same functionality two different ways.)

            So, this is a request to add a feature to Edge wherein:

            • 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);});

              • Add proxy support to webdriver

                To me, this looks like MicrosoftWebdriver does not support proxy configuration:

                https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webdriver

                I’m using BrowserMobProxy to check if the pages loaded in selenium. It works fine for chrome, firefox and opera. I can’t get this to work with edge. Here’s my code:

                public static void main(String[] args) {

                String url = "http://gitlab.com";
                String edgeDriverPath = "resources/MicrosoftWebDriver.exe";

                BrowserMobProxyServer proxy = new BrowserMobProxyServer();

                Proxy seleniumProxy = ClientUtil.createSeleniumProxy(proxy);
                DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
                capabilities.setCapability(CapabilityType.PROXY, seleniumProxy);

                System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver",edgeDriverPath);

                EdgeOptions options = new EdgeOptions();

                proxy.start(0);
                seleniumProxy.setHttpProxy("localhost:"+ proxy.getPort());
                seleniumProxy.setSslProxy("localhost:"+ proxy.getPort());
                options.setProxy(seleniumProxy);

                WebDriver driver = new EdgeDriver(EdgeDriverService.createDefaultService(),options);

                proxy.newHar(url);

                driver.get(url);

                Har har = proxy.getHar();

                      • 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.

                        • Microsoft Edge DevTools Protocol:Browser setters and geters for WindowBounds, WindowState and AddressBar visibility.

                          Methods should be added to set and get window bounds, state and address bar visibility.

                          E.G. in chrome:
                          Browser.setWindowState()
                          Browser.getWindowState()
                          Browser.setWindowBounds()
                          Browser.getWindowBounds()
                          and the command line argument --app="<address>"

                          These allow us to make desktop applications using Edge and I feel this is pretty vital especially as a modern replacement for the IE COM API.

                            • RTSP Streaming Protocol Support

                              The video surveillance industry relies heavily on the RTSP protocol (as implemented by ffmpeg, vlc media player, live555, etc) for streaming h264 and h265 video content.

                              It's not a new protocol by any stretch but it is part of the ONVIF standard that essentially all video surveillance manufacturers use as well as part of the PSIA standard which a subset of the manufacturers also support (in addition to ONVIF).

                              It's a simple protocol and there are plenty of open source implementations.

                              HTML5 does not include equivalent functionality.

                              WebRTC pushes VP8/9 and while it may support h264 it's often online baseline…

                                It would be great to have enhanced support of scrollIntoView, by supporting scrollIntoViewOptions parameters (already supported by Firefox for example):

                                Can I use: https://caniuse.com/#feat=scrollintoview

                                MDN doc: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Element/scrollIntoView

                                It is a really simple and smart web API.

                                    • Favorites Menu - website list

                                      The favorites menu is now 6 inches wide even though the longest entry is only 1-2 inches wide. The menu now takes up 6 inches of the screen. please allow the user to make is narrower so we can see the screen. It just looks odd, most of the area is blank.

                                        Provide the ability to turn off specific developer shortcuts. Ctrl + Shift + J conflicts with Oracle PeopleSoft shortcut.

                                        • 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.
