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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Support of the width descriptor in srcset, and the sizes attribute

    Implement extended srcset which includes support for the sizes attribute on the image tag and the addition of the width descriptor instead of just the pixel density descriptor inside of the srcset attribute.

      • Never allow malicious tabs/pages to create modal dialogs that cannot be dismissed

        Edge should prevent a page from repeatedly popping up modal dialogs that block action on the current or other tabs. In IE 11, it is possible for a page to pop up a modal OS dialog window, and upon attempting to close that window, simply re-open it. I experienced this today with a rogue fake virus warning page, and had to kill the entire IE process to get rid of the dialog. Simply unacceptable from a security standpoint.

        • Support propery 'selectionDirection' for input and textarea

          http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec-preview/textFieldSelection.html

          I used to use the el.createTextSelection method to determine the selection direction in IE11. However, inputs and textareas no longer expose this method, while still the el.selectionDirection = undefined.
          We don't have any way to determine selectionDirection now.

          • Create 64-bit versions of http://dev.modern.ie/ virtual machines

            Please create 64-bit VM's (i.e. the free VM's that have different OS and IE versions and last three months before "expiring").

            Even on a very fast machine, the http://dev.modern.ie/ virtual machines are slower than they could be due to their 32-bit OS.

            So making a 64-bit set available would increase productivity for many users of these VM's.

            Another reason for 64-bit VM's is for the ability to test on 64-bit machines (I've seen this mentioned on other message boards about modern.ie VM's).

            THANK YOU for providing VM's!

              • Support for the ImageData constructor

                The ImageData constructor is particularly useful for creating new image data in a worker.

                https://html.spec.whatwg.org/#imagedata

                This has been implemented in Firefox (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=959958) and Chromium (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=338804). Support in IE would be great.

                • Support pseudo elements for <option>

                  Please add support for pseudo elements :before and :after for <option> tag in <select>. It works pretty well in all other browsers.
                  Here is an example for it:

                  • We need a forum for Microsoft Edge

                    Since Microsoft Edge is a new browser product, with many distinct differences from Internet Explorer, as well as many new features previously unknown in a Microsoft browser, we need an Edge forum to discuss issues and solutions, and where users can get many of their questions answered.

                                Enterprise customers will have to support legacy IE applications for the foreseeable future. We have applications that uses components from 10 years ago and where the supplier does not exist anymore.
                                From the usability point of view we want to use Edge as default browser. I also think that splitting IE and Edge is the only way forward. However we need a solution to open certain sites in a specific browser. A GPO with an entry like trusted sites that we can manage would be the preferred solution for us. If we have Edge as default browser it could launch…

                                  • Support new cursor properties of CSS3 to enhance usability

                                    You should implement the new cursor properties of CSS3 http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ui/#cursor, e. g. grab, grabbing, zoom-in and zoom-out to make websites more user friendly.

                                    Other browsers support the new properties since a long time https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/cursor#Browser_compatibility.

                                    The symbols for the cursor properties can be found on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/cursor.

                                    • support document.currentScript property

                                      I looking for a way to know where has my script been loaded.
                                      The most suprising thing that I could emulate this property through script.readyState, but until IE10, later it has been removed.

                                      • Support document.baseURI property

                                        Support the standard property document.baseURI. Internet Explorer is the only browser that doesn't.

                                        See: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/base

                                        • Don't clear placeholder unless there is text

                                          Small, but annoying issue. In Chrome and Firefox focusing an input doesn't clear the placeholder; it only gets cleared when there is text. In IE, it clears when you focus.

                                          This is especially annoying if you want to automatically focus a field and you're using placeholders for labeling your elements since the field you focused is no longer labeled :(
