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.

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".

          • Highlight find matches in DOM Explorer

            This feature would improve the find experience in the DOM Explorer to highlight the matching string in the DOM Tree.

            Proposed Design
            - Find in the DOM Explorer highlights string match by highlighting the background of the text in blue (to match the debugger)
            - Highlight find matches in the DOM Explorer gutting with a blue glyph (to match the debugger)
            - Change the DOM Explorer to highlight as you type
            - Enter, F3 and Shift + F3 to continue to execute and navigate search matches
            - Add a progress indicator while executing a find operation

            • Watches can be evaluated when not at a breakpoint ("24x7 watches")

              This feature would add the ability to inspect JavaScript objects via the watches pane, even when not broken (paused) in the debugger.

              Proposed Design
              - All watch expressions will be evaluated at the global scope
              - Watches will only be re-evaluated when the debugger breaks (and then on subsequent steps)
              - A refresh button will be added to the pane command strip and to the context menu in order to enable the developer to force all the expressions to be re-evaluated
              - Will have side effects (e.g. getters will be called in order to evaluate the watch expression)

              • font-face and keyframes

                This feature would extend the styles views in the DOM Explorer to include the referenced values for font-face and keyframe.

                Proposed Design
                - The styles pane would include any keyframes or font-face rules that were applied to the selected element (overridden or not) at the bottom of the styles pane in a new section ("@ rules") (which would not show over @ rules such as @media or @imports)
                - The computed styles pane would include the font-face/keyframe and a link to the definition in CSS (or source mapped file)

                • Local-redirect

                  This feature allows users to intercept network calls and redirect the responses to locally served files.

                  Proposed Design
                  - Provide a "Redirect locally" button to enter "Local redirect mode"
                  - Provide a context menu option on captured requests to enter "Local redirect mode"
                  - Provide a "Local redirect mode" where users can modify the URL of the request to intercept and select a local file to respond with.

                  • Centralized general settings

                    This feature would add a menu where all general tool options would reside.

                    Proposed Design
                    - Add a button to serve as the menu entry point
                    - Add a popup panel that will contain a collection of tools settings

                    • Editor file picker can be pinned/unpinned

                      This feature would add a button toggle to file picker to alternate the behavior of the file picker to either have its current behavior or (new) to be docked and always visible on the left hand side of the debugger.

                      Proposed Design
                      - Pin toggle added to the right of the input box for the file picker
                      - Toggle is 2nd in tab order (after the input box) for the file picker
                      - Width of the pane will be resizable and persisted
                      - When docked, the file picker items are added to the tab order of the debugger (the tree…

                      • Find results pane

                        This feature would add a "Find Results' pane to the debugger. When carrying out a find across files operation in the debugger (by pressing enter) the results will be shown in a pane that lists out all the matches along with a preview. The list of results can be used to navigate the editor to the results.

                        Proposed Design
                        - A light dismiss pane that will replace the console window when displayed
                        - Navigating the results pane (mouse or keyboard) will change the editor view but will not set focus in the editor
                        - Activating a match will change the…

                        • Force Active and Focus Pseudo States

                          This feature would add the ability to set the focus and active pseudo states from the DOM Explorer pseudo state checkboxes.

                          Proposed Design
                          - New checkboxes on the pseudo state toggles
                          - Would not fire any JavaScript events (e.g. focus, blur)
                          - Force on only no force off (off toggle state will follow browser default)

                          • Evaluate to console

                            This feature would add an "Evaluate in console" to the DOM tree context menu that would send the selected element to the console (same as console.log(<element>).

                            Proposed Design
                            - New context menu item "&Evaluate in console" to be enabled for any markup node in the DOM tree in the DOM Explorer.
                            - The command will decode the image (based on the media type supplied in the URI) to a bitmap that can be copied to the clipboard

                            • Custom filtering in console

                              This feature would add an input box to the console that would winnow the displayed console items to only items that match the contents

                              Proposed Design
                              - Input box in top right of console in the same location as the find box on other tools
                              - The console items should be winnowed as the developer types (no need to commit with enter etc.)
                              - Searches all visible info (message, location, property key/values)
                              - Simple text search (could be done on the serialized version from the copy item command)
                              - Whitespace is treated as an AND operation (e.g. window foo would…

                              • Support for asynchronous pluggable protocol in IE (Internet Explorer)

                                Allow custom URI's in Internet Explorer, like nabto://device.company.net.
                                Basically implement the IInternetProtocol family of COM interfaces on Windows Phone 8 and allow us to add our own protocol handlers (in the Registry) - it is possible on Windows 8.

                                • add missing css touch features to mobile ie10

                                  Some especially for mobile useful CSS features like ms-scroll-chaining, snap-points and several others are missing from the phone version of ie10, which cripples the touch experience and requires additional and less smooth js libraries. It's especially frustrating while developing native html based apps.
