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.

  1. Async Generators / Async Iterators

    Async iterators and async generator functions(https://github.com/tc39/proposal-async-iteration) are now a stage-3 ECMAScript proposal, nearly finished. They make many styles of programming in JavaScript easier (https://ponyfoo.com/articles/javascript-asynchronous-iteration-proposal); in particular, they are important for WHATWG Streams (https://streams.spec.whatwg.org). As of 2017-10-22, async generators have already been implemented in Blink, Firefox, and WebKit.

    • Preview documents on Upload

      Can you please display a thumbnail / preview view on the right-hand side when you go into upload documents to a SharePoint Site. It would be handy to preview content inside the document(s) so you can make sure you are uploading the correct document. This is possible with Chrome and IE.

      • Change to uncheck Use Microsoft compatibility lists as default in about:flags

        This "Use Microsoft compatibility lists" option act as block to visit many websites using edge because this option misdiagnose that sites has compatibility problems

        However those sites doesn't have any compatibility problem with edgehtml and if user change to unchecked this option they can visit all website as they want, that's ridiculous

        Compatibility lists already meaningless option and make Edge most inconvenient browser for most people

        So Edge dev have to uncheck and remove option asap !

        • 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

            • Add support for RFC4709: Mounting Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) Servers

              Right now, getting people to mount a webdav folder involves and end user following various complicated instructions to manually mount the server using "Add network location".

              What should be possible is for the end user to click on a link, and have the process kicked off as if they used the "Add a network location" and entered a webdav endpoint.

              This will drastically reduce the administrative burden of configuring webdav drives, in an RFC compliant manner.

                Allow changing the user agent string from outside the browser like other browsers have.
                Such as creating profile or options arguments for custom the user agent string.

                  the favorites bar width is way too large after your update and can't be made narrower.
                  Either go back to original format or allow users to adjust width of bar

                  • Please support imageData for pageAction.setIcon

                    I've been attempting to port a simple Chrome extension which builds its icon dynamically to reflect the state of the current page (which would otherwise require 40 distinct icons), and this is currently blocking me. Can't imagine I'm the only one by a long chalk.

                    • Implement link rel="modulepreload"

                      modulepreload is a new link relation that behaves similar to preload, but different in several key ways. For example, it interprets its attributes and changes to them differently; it uses the module map instead of the preload cache; and it allows optionally fetching descendant modules as an optimization.

                      Spec: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/links.html#link-type-modulepreload

                      Tests: https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/blob/master/preload/modulepreload.html

                            This API is already supported on other desktop browsers. Supporting it will really makes IME handling easier.

                              • 103 Early Hints

                                The 103 Early Hints status code allows a server to tell browsers what to pre-fetch (with link headers) before the final response is available (e.g. because the server needs to "think", or because it's fetching something from another server).

                                This is functionally similar to HTTP/2 server push, but simpler and more interoperable.

                                  • The WebDriver should not close currently open windows when starting automated testing

                                    I use Edge as my primary browser, but I also use NCrunch to drive automated UI testing for our web-based applications. When NCrunch kicks off tests impacted by changes I have made, by Edge browsers shut down, with all the tabs and windows lost forever.
                                    The IE Web Driver didn't have this issue and while I know that the browsers are not the same, the expectation is that they would behave similarly.
                                    Allowing the Edge Web Driver to trigger and manage its own windows, separate from any that the user has opened and is currently using, would be a welcomed…

                                        • view localStorage quota from webpages

                                          Because there was a bug in Edge, I was not able to save more than 50-100kb of data in the localStorage (on every webpage/domain!).
                                          It was impossible for me to find out why and finished to reset completely the Edge app. So I lost all my cookies, passwords and so on.

                                          Never found out why Edge had this problem and I am sure other people are leaving Edge for similar problems. Maybe it would be nice to see why my localStorage was limited to 50kb. Maybe a domain used 100MB and then no other was able to save data anymore…
