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".

      • Allow embedding a pdf from blob data

        For now it's impossible to embed a PDF file generated either by a web API or client-side script.

        "object" or "iframe" tags don't opens pdf document when the source is an objectURL or a dataURL.

        See issue #5411066

        Use case : http://pdfmake.org/playground.html

        • CSS transform:matrix3d

          I am creating a new JS UI framework which is using this style a lot.
          Changing the value dynamically results in beautiful transitions in Chrome, FF & Safari. In Edge however, the animations feel 20x slower (I am not even sure if the GPU kicks in) and transitions like just zooming an image to the front results in flips & rotations which should not be there.

          Please send me an email in case you need test cases and I can add you to the repository of the new framework to see it live inside the examples.

          • Event.composedPath()

            https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Event/composedPath

            neither "path" nor the new standard "composedPath()" is supported at this point. it would be nice to not use polyfills just for IE & Edge while other browsers support it already for a while.

            • Console: show web workers

              Take a look at the Chrome console: You can switch the current context from the main thread to every web worker which got created. This is extremely useful for debugging workers.

              • Console.log() -> support for multiple, comma separated arguments

                it is kind of annoying to get outputs like "test [Object object]".
                this is implemented in Chrome, Safari & FF for a long time already.

                  • Word meaning

                    while reading any blog/article, if we are not getting the meaning of a word we have to search for it on a new tab. If you could add a feature so that on selection of that word, we can get the meaning.

                    • side by side browsing like "side view"

                      side by side browsing like firefox's new "side view" - this feature would make life easier on widescreens and extend continuum/w10 phone usefulness - use a lot of web-based services but hoping between tabs is painful. I am learning to code and firefox side view is a godsend
                      implement/allow on windows phone mobile (can be landscape only)

                          This feature would mirror what Chrome DevTools has, where non-enumerable members of evaluated objects are displayed in the console and Watches / Locals. To signify they are non-enumerable, the member names are greyed out.

                            Quite trivial, could you make the bookmark sub-menus appear when mouse hovers over it (rather than having to click).

                            • support my decision to use Tor Browser

                              Microsoft would not allow me to approve the Tor download so I have it on a 16 gig usb port. Now whenever I restart my computer I have to completely refigure it, the Tor Browser has to be once again placed in the tool bar and I can't make it my main browser. maybe im just missing something simple but I am so frustrated.

                                  FLASH/Flex workloads run noticeably slower on the Edge browser than they do on competing browsers. Edge browser performance should be improved to handle FLASH/Flex workloads at speeds comparable to other browsers.

                                    The Media Capabilities API allows developers to determine decoding and encoding abilities of the device, exposing information such as whether media is supported and whether playback should be smooth and power efficient, with real time feedback about playback to better enable adaptive streaming, and access to display property information.

                                    * Spec: https://wicg.github.io/media-capabilities/

                                    Chrome, Safari, and Firefox all have Media Capabilities support.

                                      Hi, I was trying to create a developer's account and the account type was already selected for me as a business, I tried to change it to an individual but it won't let me. Anytime when I sign in with Microsoft account and try to sing up for developer's account, the account type is already selected and I can't change it. So I stopped there, I didn't create the account. How can I change that to an individual?

                                      • Enable Migration of Password from Firefox/Chrome or at least via a XML file into Edge

                                        Enable Migration of Password from Firefox/Chrome or at least via a XML file into Edge. Chrome/Firefox lets you export the password to a XML File and this can be used to import the same into Edge. This is the main thing that is keeping me away from using Edge.

                                          stop hijacking PDFs with your terrible Edge app. I don't use Edge as my browser, but when I select open with Adobe, and set the default app to Adobe, Edge overrides it every time. Terrible. Adobe reader is great and Edge is very weak. please please stop it. it is the biggest flaw with Windows 10 (even worse than the games and bloatware)
