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?

  1. Emulation: Support emulation of popular iOS and Android devices

    Our customers have an environment where most laptops run Windows 10 but most company phones are iPhones. Those who sport tablets have iPads and occasionally Android tablets. When developing for this device environment we have to consider emulation and only use real devices when testing. We are trying hard to adopt Edge as a development browser but with the current developer tools emulation only having Windows Phone devices out of the box our guys have to resort to custom configurations. Considering the market share of Windows Phone devices versus the market share of Android and iOS devices it doesn't make…

    • Address bar at bottom in Edge for Android / iOS

      Please create the possibility to display the address bar at the bottom.

      The handling would be made much easier and the browser could be operated with one hand. Alternatively you can take the function Home from the Chrome as an example.

      • Firefox instead of Chromium

        Use the Firefox engine instead of the Chromium engine for use in Edge. Firefox is more secure, more private, and uses less resources.

        • UX

          I'd like to volunteer to be a part of the Edge user experience, product engineering, design team. I am passionate about continuous improvement and feel that I could be of great use to the MS team. While I don't have formal training in UX, it appears that hasn't been a requirement thus far. I believe in MS and it's potential in creating a robust browser and sure if applications that will rival Google; I'm just not sure what's taking so long. I have uninstalled or disabled all Google products from my laptop and mobile phone but only made it 2…

              I want to love Edge, but I HATE it. Here is why. When I turn off location in Windows 10, why does it contine to f-ing hound me that sites want my location?

              If I go to full screen why does it ask me for every f-ing site if it is OK?

              And lastly, I NEVER want to allow ANY site to send me notification, yet I have NO control over any of these MORONIC annoyances.

              I would fire every one of your sorry, pathetic, ***** for not realizing that most people hat that ****.

              • Allow users to edit or remove issues submitted to the Edge issue tracker

                after posting an issue in the issue tracker, you might notice an inaccuracy, typo or sensitive data and it'd be pretty handy to be able to fix those things.

                  • Add new tabs like other browsers do

                    When opening a link in a new tab Edge seems to add the new tab at a random place in the middle of my tab array. It takes me quite a while to find it. It seems the logic is each tab has a parent and new tabs are added at the end of all children from the parent tab. Where other browsers add the new tab at the beginning, meaning you know where it's going to be.

                    • Give Edge at least the same functionality as the product it replaced (IE)

                      Put the Favourites links back into the users' favourites folder on the desktop. The current location of Edge favourites' links is utterly ridiculous - the pathway is about a page long, and clearly intended to prevent users from directly managing their bookmark links the same way we could with IE. This is ****, and if MS had any sort of interest in their clients and user base, they wouldn't make such stupid, alienating, non-consultative decisions.
                      Fix this now, before we all choose Firefox instead !!!!!!

                      • Give Edge at least the same functionality as the product it replaced (IE)

                        Put back the toolbars and users' ability to customise them. You've really buggered up your own product here. What idiot approved development of a product that doesn't have at least the same functionality as the one it replaced? Edge may run faster, but your users have to waste their own time doing simple **** like printing, which is now no longer a simple click on a single button. Edge doesn't even preselect the buttons it does have. MS, stop screwing your user base and forcing us into other user friendlier apps.

                        • Fixed header on tables with scrolling tbody

                          Please support existing Chrome functionality that supports scrolling tbody and fixed header in responsive tables! Many posts on Stack Overflow trying to achieve this cross-browser capability, already available in Chrome.

                              The old version of this tool showed me the actual payload string but now shows the key/val pairs broken down and sorted alphabetically. This isn't useful for me any more. Please include an option to show the ACTUAL payload string as is built and sent.

                                • [EPUB Reader] single-column, scrollable chapters (an additional contents display option)

                                  For the guide books that contain a lot of pictures (for example, various guides), the automatic switch between the single column and two column view is not parctical, because it keeps the figures relatively small. What's worse, sometimes the bottom part of the pictures is clipped by the bottom edge of the browser window.

                                  See this sample EPUB guide: http://wjaworski.pl/inne/sample.epub

                                  The solution, available in other EPUB readers (for example, in the iOS Ebooks) allows users to select the single-column, scrollable mode. It would be enough, if the reader shows the current chapter in this way (technically, chapters are the smallest…

                                      Don't take the focus from a text box or user entry when pop-ups show up. It make the user experience very annoying. It should leave the focus on the text box the user is using and/or actively typing in so that they can finish their standard task.

                                      • Make edge more one hand friendly on Android.

                                        Edge on Android is freakin awesome, but a little more refinement will make edge even more enjoyable to use.

                                        1. Move the home button to the navigation bar instead of having it at the to near the address bar.
                                        2. Make the hub more easier to reach, It is up top which make it hard to reach on big phones.
                                        3. On the tab page, bring the Tab selection header to the bottom.

                                        • Issues with pronunciation of words when using Read Aloud feature.

                                          There are some issues with pronunciation of specific words when using the Read Aloud feature.
                                          Examples:
                                          Walkthrough
                                          SSIS
                                          SSAS
                                          SQL
                                          SQL." (gets read as "es kew el dot", but just the capitalisation should be read, not the period.)

                                          Also, American dates get read incorrectly (08.12.18 can be read as 8th of December or 12th of August depending on the language of the page).
