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. unsupported pseudo class renders CSS useless

    unsupported pseudo class renders CSS useless
    When MS Edge does not support a pseudo class (e.g. :focus-within), it ignores other grouped selectors such as:

    #menu:focus-within, /* remove this to make it work in Edge */
    button[aria-expanded="true"] ~ #menu {
    -webkit-transform: translateX(0);
    transform: translateX(0);
    }

    Is this the correct behavior?

    Please see this demonstration:

    • Favorites Menu - website list

      The favorites menu is now 6 inches wide even though the longest entry is only 1-2 inches wide. The menu now takes up 6 inches of the screen. please allow the user to make is narrower so we can see the screen. It just looks odd, most of the area is blank.

        • Support navigator.keyboard.getLayoutMap() API

          An API that returns a map which translates from `KeyboardEvent.code` values into a strings that can be shown to the user to identify each key.

          This is not possible with existing web platform APIs because the value that should be shown to the user depends on the keyboard layouts that the user has installed and active.

          WICG incubation spec: https://wicg.github.io/keyboard-map/

          Note: there is some overlap between this and a previous feature request https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/6508637-uievents-keyboard-query-apis

          The previous request was based on an old proposal that is no longer being pursued in the standards bodies.

          • Eyedropper

            Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome have a native eyedropper to capture screen colors just by "clicking on them." The result can be chosen as "RGB", "RGBA" or a simple color code. I have not found any similar solution for Edge even in extensions and I really need this feature.

              • Remove Share/ Add Notes or a turn off option

                Not everybody wants a share and add notes button. I personally have no use for them and it simply clutters my browser. I would like to see a turn off option for these add ons. I don't like them and don't want them. Having the option to remove pointless and annoying add ons that YOU have decided I want or need should be an option. Whatever happened to freedom of choice. I should have that option to choose whether I want these add ons or not. And I don't PLEASE rectify this as I know many are unhappy these add…

                    • When will Edge support protected PDF's

                      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...

                      • Mozilla Firefox has the ability to show many rows and columns of tiles when a new tab is selected (These are customizable with favourites).

                        Mozilla Firefox has the ability to show many rows and columns of tiles when a new tab is selected These are customizable with favourites on the new tab page. This is in an extension in Firefox. Very useful, much more useful than just the eight tiles on a new tab page which is currently in Edge

                          • PowerShell module

                            It would be awesome (and expected) to be able to interact with Edge using PowerShell. Automating the importing/exporting of favorites for example would be great.

                                • Implement inline replies for web notifications

                                  We intend to extend the Notifications API to allow developers to show notifications that let users type a reply within the notification itself, and deliver this reply back to the service worker in the notificationclick event. See the spec change pull request at https://github.com/whatwg/notifications/pull/132 and explainer here: https://github.com/anitawoodruff/inline-notification-replies

                                  Edge could implement this using the Windows Action Center APIs for specifying a 'quick reply text box' in notification toasts: see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design/shell/tiles-and-notifications/adaptive-interactive-toasts#inputs

                                  • 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…

                                    • Canvas 2D Font kerning support

                                      Actually renderingContext2D fillText and strokeText do not support embedded font kerning information in fonts.
                                      This makes microsoft based text on canvas looks different from all other browsers.

                                      Would be nice to support it

                                        • Preview documents on Upload

                                          Can you please display a thumbnail / preview view on the right-hand side when you go into upload documents to a SharePoint Site. It would be handy to preview content inside the document(s) so you can make sure you are uploading the correct document. This is possible with Chrome and IE.
