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. Add "Always Allow" to Adobe Flash popup

    Now in Edge (Windows 10 1809), enabling Flash for a website doesn't persist after closing the page as it did before the update. The option "Allow Once" is the only option available -- "Always Allow" is not shown -- so every time you open a site you must re-allow Flash

    • Cursor on a new tab

      Cursor on a new tab should be automatically on the address bar, so once the new tab is opened, no need to click on the address bar to enter URL. Rather the user can directly start writing on the URL after opening the tab.

      • Previous domain button

        No browser to my knowledge support back/forward button for domains. I'm suggesting this be added to Edge. The idea is that after being on some site for a while, visiting many pages on that site, that I want to now go back to the previous site not simply the previous page.

        This is low hanging fruit and something I've wondered about for many years.

        • Please open-source Edge.

          I would really like Edge to succeed and stay competitive in the browser market. However, at the rate of features being added and bugs being fixed, it doesn't seem like that's going to happen.

          Please consider open-sourcing Edge to allow the community to help bring it up to speed faster.

          (As a side note, it seems like the Android version of Edge has better feature support than the desktop version, especially for WebRTC. I don't know what that's about.)

          • Group Policy to disable PDF reader

            Currently Edge takes over the default PDF reader even after Acrobat or another reader is chosen. Please add a GPO to totally disable the PDF reader in Edge.

              • 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)

                • Sub-menus favourites open on mouse-hover

                  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.

                      • view frame source

                        please add view frame source, reload and reload frame in the right click popup menu, why do developers have to ask for elementary things to be implemented when they already exist for years in Chrome and FF ? I want to try Edge only because it is faster but every time I do I just rush back to Chrome, please provide the same developer freedom as Chrome has before claiming that Edge is better, speed alone will not cut it, every time I am in Edge I feel like my hands are in handcuffs.

                          • Allow uninstallation/deletion from Windows 10

                            This browser is ****. I can't cut and paste from pages. The developer support is deficient. Please let me uninstalled this product and get it out of my life and off of my Windows 10 computer. This browser runs out of memory. IE11 is better than this browser. ARRRRRRGGGGGGh!

                                  Edge offers a great PDF-reader. Only downside, I can't use Edge as PDF-reader for AIP Protected documents. If I want to read them, I need to install foxit, or the AIP-Client.

                                  It would be great if Edge can also be used to read protected PDFs...

                                  • Add an "IE Frame"-like Feature to Edge

                                    As a web developer, the fact that ~10% of my users still use IE11, and that its features are frozen in time from 2011, is a huge pain point preventing me from using many new web platform features. (Even with a progressive enhancement mindset, there are times when the IE experience has to be pretty close to the experience in other browsers. In those cases, using the new features often doesn't make sense — it would just mean implementing the same functionality two different ways.)

                                    So, this is a request to add a feature to Edge wherein:

                                    1) If this feature…

                                      • the favorites bar width is way too large after your update and can't be made narrower.

                                        the favorites bar width is way too large after your update and can't be made narrower.
                                        Either go back to original format or allow users to adjust width of bar

                                        • Add Group Policy setting to disable delete browser history

                                          As an education customer, we do not want students to be able to delete browser history. Chrome and IE both have a Group Policy setting to prevent that. Could a Group Policy setting like IE's "Prevent access to Delete Browsing History" be added for Edge, please?
