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…)

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.

  1. Change to uncheck Use Microsoft compatibility lists as default in about:flags

    This "Use Microsoft compatibility lists" option act as block to visit many websites using edge because this option misdiagnose that sites has compatibility problems

    However those sites doesn't have any compatibility problem with edgehtml and if user change to unchecked this option they can visit all website as they want, that's ridiculous

    Compatibility lists already meaningless option and make Edge most inconvenient browser for most people

    So Edge dev have to uncheck and remove option asap !

      • RegExp Lookbehind Assertions

        Lookbehind assertions are now part of the ECMAScript specification. Google's V8 has had an implementation of it for a while now.

          Either go back to original format or allow users to adjust width of bar

          • Microsoft Edge DevTools Protocol:Browser setters and geters for WindowBounds, WindowState and AddressBar visibility.

            Methods should be added to set and get window bounds, state and address bar visibility.

            E.G. in chrome:
            Browser.setWindowState()
            Browser.getWindowState()
            Browser.setWindowBounds()
            Browser.getWindowBounds()
            and the command line argument --app="<address>"

            These allow us to make desktop applications using Edge and I feel this is pretty vital especially as a modern replacement for the IE COM API.

            • 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?

                • Edge caching could be improved in error cases

                  I'm a developer on Azure CDN. When testing out some scenarios on our side, we noticed a difference in behavior between how Chrome browser and Edge browser work for caching some bad responses. In our CDN, if we detect that the eTag on an 'If-None-Match' request header is for a 'malformed eTag' (one with no quotes), such as If-None-Match: 64988f77337209c5a7157a016c456d02, we return a 400 response.

                  On chrome, the workflow goes like this:
                  Download page, get 200, everything fine.
                  Refresh page, browser sends If-None-Match with bad eTag, we detect this and send 400 to browser. Chrome detects this issue, and next…

                      • Update documentation on U2F support in Chrome, Opera and Firefox

                        The website wrongly states that Chrome, Opera, and Firefox do not support U2F, which is wrong. In the case of Chrome, it's been implemented for several years. In fact, Edge is the only major browser that does not support this. Please update the docs to reflect this.

                        • Visual Studio + Edge + TypeScript Debugging

                          I was so excited to hear that we could finally debug JavaScript from within Visual Studio using Edge. I wrongly assumed this meant TypeScript too, but it does not appear to work.

                              • view localStorage quota from webpages

                                Because there was a bug in Edge, I was not able to save more than 50-100kb of data in the localStorage (on every webpage/domain!).
                                It was impossible for me to find out why and finished to reset completely the Edge app. So I lost all my cookies, passwords and so on.

                                Never found out why Edge had this problem and I am sure other people are leaving Edge for similar problems. Maybe it would be nice to see why my localStorage was limited to 50kb. Maybe a domain used 100MB and then no other was able to save data anymore…

                                      • Implement `prefetch-src` CSP directive

                                        In order to block potential data leaks through prefetch requests, it was decided [1] that a `prefetch-src`CSP directive would be added and control such requests, and that prefetch requests would have their own `Request.initiator` and an empty string destination[2].

                                        [1] https://github.com/w3c/webappsec-csp/issues/107
                                        [2] https://github.com/whatwg/fetch/pull/659
