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.

  1. A way of automatic installation of extensions

    All other major web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer) provide some way to install an add-on/extension by the application installer. Most antivirus programs and download managers make use of this capability.

    With Edge, the end user, after installing the main application, has to go to the Store and add the corresponding Edge extension manually herself.

    There should be way for the extension publisher to obtain Microsoft-signed extension package from the Developer Dashboard, and include it along with the main application installer, to be added later to users' systems by powershell's Add-AppxPackage, or its equivalent.

    • Async Generators / Async Iterators

      Async iterators and async generator functions(https://github.com/tc39/proposal-async-iteration) are now a stage-3 ECMAScript proposal, nearly finished. They make many styles of programming in JavaScript easier (https://ponyfoo.com/articles/javascript-asynchronous-iteration-proposal); in particular, they are important for WHATWG Streams (https://streams.spec.whatwg.org). As of 2017-10-22, async generators have already been implemented in Blink, Firefox, and WebKit.

      • Support for Facebook

        As of 21 october 2017. Edge still hangs on FB on direct messages.
        This bug existed since 2015, and were never fixed.
        Edge needs to be closed and restarted. Then its 50% chance its Facebook compatible. Perssonal messages on requires 2-3 restarts to work. Even more if you don't copy text before closing.

            • I am switching back to Chrome or Opera because I cannot find extension such as StayFocusd is for Chrome or Leechblock is for Firefox

              I overall like the improvements that come with Edge over the IE versions. I almost was going to stay with Edge, but didn't find that important extension that I need. Also, the option to disable Edge would be good in case I want to enable it in the future. Right now, I hate the process that I need to go thru to disable it. Way better if I could disable it as with Windows 7 had with IE.

              • Bind Ctrl+P to open a file/command

                Change the Ctrl+P to show a GoTo/Command terminal. Pretty much what VSCode does.

                • OffscreenCanvas

                  From MDN: The OffscreenCanvas interface provides a canvas that can be rendered off screen. It is available in both the window and worker contexts.

                  From me: It would be great to prepare images and run WebGL without tying up the UI thread.

                        I am using Edge to do online work as part of a language course. I do not want edge to always offer words when I select an input box.

                        • Some fonts do not render in Edge

                          I have this problem where Edge does not render the Ravie font in a shown PDF file (the text in that font just does not show up!). In Chrome, IE, Adobe Reader etc. etc. it all works correctly ...

                          • Group Policy for MS Edge to set a homepage but, allow users to change it. Like GPP Registry

                            Currently, there is a GPO that would allow admin to set a homepage for MS EDGE, this however locks down the users ability to change the homepage.
                            When you zoom in to the registry where the homepage is set, it has a warning: It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy

                            Example:

                            Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected - It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy]

                            • Support the `inert` attribute

                              Trapping focus in modal dialogs or preventing focus in background layers in modern web applications is extremely difficult and error-prone. Developers either have to walk the DOM and disable every focusable control with tabindex="-1" and `aria-hidden="true"` on a parent element, or do some tricky JavaScript to maintain focus inside of an element. Many developers get this wrong or they don't do it at all, creating horribly inaccessible experiences for keyboard and screen reader users.

                              The inert attribute currently being explored in the WICG solves this problem by providing a mechanism to disable entire subtrees in HTML. By setting `inert` on…

                              • Websocket - support for custom headers for handshake

                                please consider adding ability to add custom headers for handshake. In RFC6455 there one interesting point:

                                The request MAY include any other header fields, for example, cookies [RFC6265] and/or authentication-related header fields such as the |Authorization| header field [RFC2616], which are processed according to documents that define them. I've found an example how to add custom header to handshake: https://blog.heckel.xyz/2014/10/30/http-basic-auth-for-websocket-connections-with-undertow/ but this is for Java and unfortunately isn't possible in HTML5.

                                When searching over the net I found many places question about this option, for example: sta/websocket-sharp#22 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4361173/http-headers-in-websockets-client-api/4361358#4361358 aspnet/SignalR#888

                                For example in Python this is possible https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15381414/sending-custom-headers-in-websocket-handshake. Other languages…

                                  • Link my microsoft account to the Edge not to the Windows OS

                                    I want to use Edge but I can't because I can't link my personal account to my Windows OS because Organization settings. And how I going to use Edge without sync my bookmarks?
                                    I think we should be able to sync in Edge some how that this cannot happen.
                                    I understand that the Organization rules need to be keep for security reasons but my bookmarks wont hurt any body I think.

                                    Thanks.

                                      • ORTC/WebRTC: add VP8 RTP PictureID

                                        Hello,
                                        it seems that ORTC/WebRTC stack does not add VP8 RTP PictureID [1] which is needed by Switching Mixer Media Servers [2] to properly perform its rewriting when RTP flow switchings take place in order to avoid some issues in clients (eg: Chrome) that depend on it.

                                        Could it be added as feature request?

                                        Thanks in advance!!

                                        • Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer

                                          Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer.

                                          In Chrome and Firefox you can jump straight to a page with a URL Hashtag suffix.

                                          For example, to jump straight to page 9 of this Microsoft PDF, adding "#page=9" will take you directly there in Chrome/Firefox.

                                          http://abouttmc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Dynamics-365-for-Financials-Capabilities-Guide-TMC-2016-11.pdf#page=9

                                          However Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

                                          As a **developer**, I have pages coded to link to specific pages in PDFs that are up to 1,300 pages long... this is really frustrating for our end users.
