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".

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.

  4. Microsoft Edge Search Address needs to give me answers before you even finish typing

    Microsoft Edge address bar should give me quick results answers before you even finish typing … one-click translation, and personalized articles and use Bing Search to make any fact-finding mission fast and simple. It also should search your OneDrive, so diving into next week’s vacation plan is just that much easier. Make any fact-finding mission fast and simple.

  5. 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 !!!!!!

  6. 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.

  7. Don't steal my focus from a text box, especially if it's for a pop-up to make recommendations for things I may not want.

    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.

  9. Remove browser agent string

    Remove the browser agent string since it leads to developers doing dumb browser sniffing instead of using doing things like checking if the browser supports something by trying it out.

    Removing it would show also that you are pro standards when it comes to web development since developers would have to rely more on them instead of browser specific bugs.

  10. Please be careful with making Edge Chromium-based

    I've recently read articles about the engine of Edge is being replaced by Chromium.

    I don't think this is a good idea. Microsoft Edge manages to do what no browser can do. It plays online HTML5 videos with the speed and low-resource need comparable to a native video player (like VLC or Media Player Classic).

    This is YouTube playback in Chrome and Edge compared, on the same hardware.

    Chrome and Chromium are famous about having a very catastrophic, bloated multimedia backend, especially when it comes to video playback. GPU acceleration is hardly compatible with any video hardware. Also it…

  13. lazyLoad

    Currently, LazyLoad ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/dn369270(v=vs.94) ) is implemented in IE and Edge, see support: https://caniuse.com/#feat=lazyload

    However there is interest in standardization to enable developers lazy-loading images/iframes and other embedded content (and the proposed lazyLoad's attribute values differ from that of current Edge/IE implementation):

  15. Si al realizar una búsqueda siguen apareciendo tantísimos anuncios patrocinados antes de los resultados relevantes, nadie usará edge nunca

    Si al realizar cualquier búsqueda en el explorador siguen apareciendo tantísimos anuncios patrocinados antes de los resultados relevantes y al final de cada página (sean debidos a Bing o a Edge o a Microsoft...), nadie usará Edge nunca.
    Debieran colocar los anuncios patrocinados aparte de la sección de resultados de búsqueda y, a poder ser, tratando de no instar a la gente a clicar en ellos mediante el engaño.

  16. use Surface Book dGPU for WebGL and WebVR

    On a Surface Book 1 and Surface Book 2, both running Edge 16 with latest patches, FishGL gets <20fps. Looking at Task Manager, the Edge process is not using the NVidia discrete GPU *at all*. WebVR on the Surface Book 2 was similarly poor in performance. Please use the dGPU when WebGL or WebVR are in-use on a tab. If that means the tab has to be suspended or reloaded when detaching, that's fine by me.

  17. The website pop up ads on Edge have become unbearable

    Ads on websites have become literally unbearable. They often pop up and cover the content. Please do something about this.

  18. Support the Device Memory API

    It’s still in development, but the Device Memory API (https://github.com/w3c/device-memory) would be a relatively easy implementation that could enable "lite" versions of page assets.
