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".

    • W3C Manifest support

      Add support for the new W3C manifest specification for pinned apps as well as for Windows store applications.

      The spec allows for vendor extensions which can be used for things missing in the Level 1 of the spec. A lot of things have already been planned for Level 2 so it would be great if the MS team could participate in the discussions

        • Wrong inheritance with SVG's fill-opacity

          In IE11, if the path element of SVG has "fill-opacity" and the element is using a marker, the opacity would be inherited by marker (although marker element is NOT the child of path).

          http://jsfiddle.net/t2Fxe/

          • IE performance: TryCatchWithErrors and LayerMovement Test

            On this test, http://jsbin.com/buruseri/, IE11 performs poorly compared to other browsers especially in TryCatch and LayerMovement stress tests.

            Note: The result may vary on each run but the results shown below give you a general idea about the difference in performance on same PC.

            Time taken to accomplish this test by various browsers is as follow:

            Results:

            Safari 5.1.2

            Try/Catch with errors — 8
            Layer movement — 5
            Random number engine — 6
            Math engine — 16
            DOM speed — 8
            Array functions — 3
            String functions — 3
            Ajax declaration — 3

            Total Duration 52 ms

              • font-family should be stored as array of strings, not a string that requires parsing (escaped quotes)

                Previously IE and Firefox use to have similar behavior but now since Firefox aligned itself with Chrome (Blink) behavior, I think IE should change its behavior and make all browsers consistent.

                • Better memory management

                  Improving memory management would prevent IE from blowing through all available graphic memory. Often, when using a high number of tabs (common in development), IE will overload the available graphics memory (never RAM), and elements will start disappearing from web pages or failing to load altogether.

                  This needs to be tweaked so that it stops happening - it doesn't seem to be an issue for any other browser.

                        • Allow data: / blob: URLs in iframe src

                          Currently IE is an only browser I know to block blob:/data: URLs as an iframe src. Since iframes do not provide any other way to set Content-Type, this disallows some interesting client-side scenarios such as iframed SVG preview.

                          • all:initial

                            Supported by Firefox and Chrome and gives the developer more control over CSS cascading. This would be helpful when when writing components that get inserted in other environments.

                            Preferably both property: initial and all: initial would be supported.

                                • Debugging capabilities using the remote debugging protocol

                                  Build upon the remote debugging protocol (https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/debugger-protocol) to allow developers to use existing, familiar, developer tools.

                                  Then continue to openly build debugging innovations on the web platform based on the protocol, collaborating with other browser vendors to make it moving between browsers an easier experience.

                                    • Debug for Edge on mobile/Xbox/RaspberryPi

                                      Just like it happens for OSX/iOS, where attaching a device via USB or connecting via wifi allows to use desktop safari to inspect mobile safari and webviews on the mobile. All other browsers support this but Edge.

                                      I know weinre was recently adapted to be usable on Edge mobile too but it's hardly a complete solution for serious development, lacking support for breakpoints, CSS pseudo-element.

                                      Not to mention that I did encounter really strange behaviors of the DOM inspection panel based on when the weinre resources are loaded during JavaScript execution, something that is not acceptable to develop modern SPA…

                                        Since forever they just look pretty and don't actually change anything.

                                        • Support certificate validation using DANE (RFC 6698)

                                          DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) complements and sometimes replace the current trust model for certificates. Since it is based on the hierachical DNSSEC system, it doesn't have the flaw of having numerous (and sometimes a bit untrustworthy) certificate authorities all able to issue certificates for any domain. By making CAs unnecessay for domain-only certificates, it would shift their market to providing more reliable validation of additional information, such as who is the owner of the domain.
