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".
(thinking…)

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.

  1. Put the console.log source at the same line on the topright corner

    When you do a console.log("hello"), then the text "hello" will be outputted to the console, and then there will also be outputted a "source-link" below that line which can take you to the sourcecode and line of where that console.log was executed.

    So if you do 5 console.log, then there will be 10 lines because of the source-link

    Can you put the source-link to the right or top-right corner on every log, because that would save many lines and be more readable.

    That is was Chrome does.

    • Next Billion Users.

      The average website is at least 2MB in size. This does not bode well for the next billion users. Users who are coming online for the very first time. Users who come online with sub optimal 2G connections. They miss out on all the benefits of the internet.

      Javascript libraries and frameworks add to the bloat. Instead of having each page download and use the Js files. Can a js framework be built into the browser itself. We can consider the browser to be a platform. Also, considering that a JS engine isn't enough. A step further will be highly…

        • Allow browser.tabs.executeScript when in Reading View

          This would allow browser extensions to add features to Edge's Reading View.

          • Allow saving of printer settings

            Can you allow us to save printer settings so we don't have to configure them every time we print? I need to be more productive. Also, I use a shared printers and it costs me per pages(.15 vs. $1.00) when I overlook the settings

            • WebDriver: GetElementText should trim extra line breaks at beginning and end of text

              Fetching text from the top level div like so:
              <div>
              <div>
              <div>Text</div>
              </div>
              </div>

              should return "Text", and not "\nText"

                Add support for the "commands" API to listen for the user executing commands registered using the manifest of an extension, like the media keys or key combinations.

                • Show window size when resizing

                  This feature would show the current size of the Page (innerHeight and innerWidth) in a small label drawn in F12 as Edge is resized. The dimensions in the label would update as the Edge window is resized.

                      • feedback hub link broken! Edge fails video from webcam, NO ERROR MESSG, works with legacy doc format but no user will be able to find it

                        needs to provide useful error messages / user feedback so that a normal user can get legacy pages to display
                        some legacy pages will NEVER be updated - eg. webcam
                        IT MUST BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!
                        there is no point having a link to "Feedback Hub" if it returns "page not found"

                          • Support VP9 video codec when not hardware-accelerated

                            Edge supports the WebM VP9 encoding in MSE but only when accelerated, or if the end-user modifies about:flags. This means that sites using WebM VP9 but not H.264 cannot rely on playback in Edge, as most computers do not yet have hardware VP9.

                            For sites like Wikipedia that avoid H.264 due to licensing policy, this leads to less efficient workarounds or lack of media usage. We would love to deploy Edge-compatible VP9 if it were usable. An opt-in API for JS would be acceptable.

                              • WebVR : Add support for Oculus Rift, OpenVR and OSVR

                                WebVR is now supported by the latest version of Edge in the Creator Update and that's amazing. However, it is limited to Mixed Reality Devices and those devices and they are not available. Windows 10 users who already have a VR headset such as a Rift or a Vive, have to use a beta browser to enjoy WebVR.

                                Please considere to update Edge with at least a support for the Oculus Rift and the Vive. And only if you want to be a super hero, add OSVR support too.

                                  • browser.cookies.onChanged event should be implemented

                                    Many of the enterprise browser extensions will need this event since they would depend on checking if their webpage is logged in already to show a dynamic page in the browser extensions panel and it will also help them to logout the user if cookie is removed.

                                    • Support browser_url_overrides to allow customized net tab page, etc. (since users can't set their own choice of new tab page...)

                                      Edge currently offers very few options for controlling the new tab experience, and the ones it does have are... not popular, judging by the Windows Insider feedback. Allowing extensions to override things like New Tab page would simultaneously address this concern and allow more Chrome extensions to be ported, making Edge a much nicer browser to use.
