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".

                        • DOM Mutation breakpoints

                          This feature would add the ability to break on a JavaScript statement that is modifying an element, or its children, in the DOM Explorer via a context menu.

                          Proposed Design
                          - Context menu item in DOM Explorer
                          - Breakpoint glyph in DOM Explorer will indicate nodes with a breakpoint bound
                          - Breakpoint is added to and managed from the debugger breakpoints window
                          - Binding across refresh is done based on a selector (determined when breakpoint is added)
                          - The mutation itself can not be changed

                                - RegEx to extract URL
                                - URL should be resolved to an absolute URL and downloaded

                                      Thanks for the feedback. We’ve started work on pretty printing CSS in the F12 debugger. Though we don’t have dates for when we’ll be able to deliver it.

                                      Update 2/2:
                                      This just shipped in the January Win10 technical preview and is part of the F12 tools for Win10 :). Thanks for all the feedback,

                                    • Stop debugging

                                      This feature would add the ability to 'stop debugging'. Once debugging is stopped the debugger will not break on a breakpoint, exception or the debugger keyword regardless of the state of the breakpoint or exception toggles.

                                      Proposed Design
                                      - New toggle icon on the debugger command strip
                                      - Persisted across sessions

                                      • Network inspector filter by type

                                        This feature allows users to filter the network traffic displayed in the summary view.

                                        Proposed Design
                                        - Provide a menu that allows users to select one or more of the following types of content: All, HTML, Stylesheets, Scripts, Image, Font, XHR, Other

                                        • Log network errors to the console

                                          This feature would add network errors to the console. For example if a request returned 404 or 500 a message would be logged to the console containing the URL and initiator info.

                                          Proposed Design
                                          - Use same message pipeline
                                          - Exact error conditions TBD but a status code of 404 or 5xx proposed for now
                                          - Logged as an error
                                          - The message should contain the URL that failed
                                          - The source location should be picked from the initiator
