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.

        • Service Worker

          ServiceWorkers (formerly Navigation Controllers) are a new system that provides event-driven scripts that run independent of web pages. They are similar to SharedWorkers except that their lifetime is different and they have access to domain-wide events such as network fetches.

                                    • Screenshot element context menu

                                      This feature would add a "Screenshot element" context menu to an element in the DOM Explorer which will copy a screenshot cropped to the selected element to the clipboard.

                                      Proposed Design
                                      - New context menu item "&Screenshot element" to be enabled for any elements in the DOM tree of the DOM Explorer
                                      - The command will fetch the bounding rectangle (top, left, width and height) for the element and then take a screenshot of the page and crop it to match the bounding rectangle for the element
                                      - Non visible elements (e.g. display:none or non visible tags will copy nothing…

                                      • Copy Data URI as Image

                                        This feature would add a "Copy image" context menu to any CSS value that contained a base64 encoded image (in a data URI). The command would be used to decode and copy the image to the clipboard where it could be posted into another application.

                                        Proposed Design
                                        - New context menu item "Copy &image" to be enabled for any CSS properties in any of the styles views that contain a data URI
                                        - A RegEx (TBD) will be used to detect a data URI (and the bounds of it)
                                        - The command will decode the image (based on the media…

                                        • Show syntax errors in debugger

                                          This feature would expose syntax errors to a developer who has a file open in the F12 debugger.

                                          Proposed Design
                                          - If a JavaScript file containing syntax errors is opened in the debugger the syntax error will have a red squiggle and there will be a warning glyph in the gutter
