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".

    • Implement the Web Audio API

      For game development, the Web Audio API is extremely useful: it allows game developers to apply effects to audio that would be otherwise impossible, as well as generate and analyze audio entirely on the client.

      • getUserMedia() API

        Since our company made the move to Windows 8 tablets, our proprietary tablet app is unable to use the camera and microphone for our technicians to use, since IE Metro has outlawed any hardware access, and plugins for that matter.

          • Cookie inspection and editing

            This feature would allow the inspection and modification of all cookies relevant to the current page via a tabular view in F12.

            Proposed Design
            - New item in file picker "Cookies"
            - Once opened all cookies relevant to the page (based on top URL) will be displayed in a grid with columns for; name, value, domain, path, expires time, HTTP (only), Secure (only)
            - Grid is fully editable
            - Options to clear all cookies and session cookies

              In Edge cookies are now show in the file picker of the F12 debugger. To see cookies just open F12, go to the debugger and open the file picker (ctrl+o or folder icon) and you will see a folder node for cookies under which each will be a number of nodes for each page. Clicking on the node will open up a grid view of all the cookies relevant to that page the grid is editable so cookies can be updated and deleted.

                          • developer tools - bring back css tab and put it into Sources tab like Chrome does

                            Please improve developer tools to be as better as Chrome's.
                            - move navigation to top instead of being at left side, and spell out the tab name
                            - put all sources (js, css, etc.) into one tab - Sources
                            - Data previewer for ajax response, e.g. json viewer
                            - Just learn from Chrome how to make it better

                            • VM for Linux / Mac

                              I work in Linux & sometimes OSX. It would be great if IE worked natively on those platforms as it is a pain to boot up a specific Windows machine just for testing.
                              While I guess you won't be releasing for Ubuntu any time soon, it would be really helpful to have better Virtual Machines to aide with testing.

                                    Currently only Firefox has support for this attribute from the SVG standard. Support would allow many advancements in UI and HTML file support.

                                      • Support css initial

                                        Support the CSS 'initial' keyword for the display property. Can be seen in this MDN article: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/initial

                                        Very useful for resetting properties and encourages reusable CSS.
