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".

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.

    • Allow users to force doc mode for all sites.

      (From https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8454465 )
      Web developers do not always correctly choose UA modes. Allow users to force Edge mode (or another mode, if they so choose) for normal browsing to take full advantage of the chosen engine.

      • Subresource Integrity

        Subresource Integrity defines a mechanism by which user agents may verify that a fetched resource has been delivered without unexpected manipulation. In a nutshell, metadata inlined into HTML elements allows the browser to determine whether the resource that was downloaded matches the resource the page's author expected to download.

                  • CSS Appearance

                    Add appearance property. The CSS appearence defines how elements (particularly form controls) appear by default. By setting the value to none the default appearance can be entirely redefined using other CSS properties.

                    • Developer Release Channel should be updated more often automatically

                      The IE Developer release channel should be updated automatically more often e.g. once a day or once a week. Chrome Canary and Mozilla Aurora is everyday. It should be updated in Windows Update and outside of Windows Update like you do with Windows Defender security definitions.

                                        • De-emphasized version numbers with incremental updates

                                          I know that version numbers have long been part of Microsoft's marketing plan, but it's time to quit that old habit and try to sell features, not numbers. Why worry about what version clients/customers use when your software is always up-to-date.

                                          Trouble with 'enterprise' software complaining that moving the web forward breaks their apps? Let them use an emulator or force them to upgrade, not via network policies via local IT admins.

                                          The modern web doesn't care about version numbers, why does IE still?

                                          Protip: Chrome uses differentials so their updates aren't a monolithic re-install
