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".

  1. Scrolling tables

    To those in the enterprise application world, tables are used extensively and can get both very tall and wide. Currently there is no easy way to make an HTML table scroll either way.

    Long ago in Firefox 3 you could add :overflow:scroll" to tbody and it would scroll, but they removed support for that because it was not standard. Even that only supported vertical scrolling.

    There are probably too many javascript toolkits to count that include their own version of a scrollable grid. Although those are very helpful, none which I know of support scrolling on tables without using "table-layout:fixed".…

      • Detect mobile-web-app-capable in metadata and provide app-like experience.

        When <meta name="mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"> is on the page, give the user cues that the site can be saved as an app. When opened as an app, provide minimal or no chrome to the user, and make any other web-app-specific UI/behavior changes.

                    • Make behaviour of host objects more consistent

                      We need wrappers around host objects like window, location. etc in IE so that they behave similar to other JavaScript objects. Though this behaviour is not defined by the specification, doing so will be make the behaviour of host objects similar to other JavaScript objects and consistent across browsers as well

                      This will especially avoid problems like these - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25008099/function-prototype-bind-does-not-work-in-ie-even-in-versions-where-it-is-suppose
