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. It's really hard to improve my site's performance in Edge without flame graphs

    The performance tools in Firefox and Chrome both have flame graphs and improving performance there is really easy. Our site is an order of magnitude slower in Edge but we have no idea why because the performance panel just says the time is being taken up by JavaScript without telling us anything else.

    I assume this is already on your roadmap because I have no idea how developers at Microsoft are able to improve the performance of their web apps in Edge otherwise. Consider this a strong vote for this feature. When this is implemented, +1000 points for using an…

        • unsupported pseudo class renders CSS useless

          unsupported pseudo class renders CSS useless
          When MS Edge does not support a pseudo class (e.g. :focus-within), it ignores other grouped selectors such as:

          #menu:focus-within, /* remove this to make it work in Edge */
          button[aria-expanded="true"] ~ #menu {
          -webkit-transform: translateX(0);
          transform: translateX(0);
          }

          Is this the correct behavior?

          Please see this demonstration:

          • JavaScript stepUp / stepDown for number input

            https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_number_stepup.asp
            https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_number_stepdown.asp

            These are currently not supported by Edge.

            They work fine for range or date input, but someone just missed the most natural use of these methods for number input.

            • RegExp Named Capture Groups

              The proposal is in Stage 4, so it will be included in next ECMAScript release. Chrome and Safari have implemented this feature for regular expression. Named groups make regex easier to read when there are many groups.

              See: https://github.com/tc39/proposal-regexp-named-groups

              • Hide download dialog box

                There should be a way to minimize or hide the download dialog box. If the download takes some time the dialog box prevents interactions with some elements in a webpage.

                • Spread operator for object literals

                  This feature is currently Stage 3 and is implemented by Firefox stable, Chrome stable, Safari Preview, and Node stable.

                  This is really useful for shallow cloning objects:

                  let objClone = { ...obj };

                      • When will Edge support protected PDF's

                        Edge offers a great PDF-reader. Only downside, I can't use Edge as PDF-reader for AIP Protected documents. If I want to read them, I need to install foxit, or the AIP-Client.

                        It would be great if Edge can also be used to read protected PDFs...

                        • 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);});

                            • Bring back classic ASP with jscript

                              I'm the founder of a company producing a web based EHR on classic ASP with jscript (not vbscript) since 2001. I've looked at and tried almost every platform that was or is since then (java, PHP, ASP.NET, Ruby/Rails, node, python, scala, go) and have yet to find a superior development platform.

                              Instead of using vbscript, we chose to use jscript. As the universal language of web development, javascript is now the only language my programmers need to know for both client and server, and every web programmer knows javascript. So, I don't have any problem finding developers. I also don't…

                              • Implement `prefetch-src` CSP directive

                                In order to block potential data leaks through prefetch requests, it was decided [1] that a `prefetch-src`CSP directive would be added and control such requests, and that prefetch requests would have their own `Request.initiator` and an empty string destination[2].

                                • Always show most recent console messages

                                  At the moment it's really annoying to always have to manually scroll to the bottom of the console to see the most recent messages, especially when trying to debug this way.

                                  Please let the console auto scroll or stick to the bottom so the most recent messages are always displayed

                                  • WebGL Shader Binary Caching

                                    Fairly trivial to implement, and Chrome does this well. Simply caching the shader binaries means subsequent compilations can be skipped and cached binaries loaded.
                                    For web pages loading significant shader programs, this can be a huge improvement.

                                    • Option to auto-scroll in Network Debugger

                                      Please add an option(toggle) to enable auto-scroll in the Network section of the debugger. When trying to analyse api calls it's very annoying the trigger actions in the webpage and the scroll to the end of the list in the network debugger.

                                        • Blob support for IndexedDB

                                          Blobs in IndexedDB in DevTools show up as blank. They are saved just fine in Chrome. Let me save blobs in IndexedDB.
