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".

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.

    • Simulation for older ie versions for testing purposes

      It would be great for developers and designers to check for compatibility issues in older ie versions via some extension.
      It can be developed much like webdeveloper tools in mozilla.

        • Support h.265 Main profile video codec

          Support h.265 Main profile video codec please

          Just supporting Main profile is already a significant improvement over existing video codecs

            • Prevent Update of older version, first fix the errors in IE11 or newer.

              IE11 have so much errors if you use zoom level on high resolution displays for example.
              Please fix errors first bevor build new Version or features.

                • Transferable for postMessage in Web Worker

                  The postMessage API for Web Workers in Chrome and Firefox supports a "Transferable" interface allowing certain types of objects such as ArrayBuffers and Typed Arrays to be "moved" from a worker context to the parent context, or vice-versa, without copying.

                  This can be essential for good performance in image and video-processing tasks that need to ship around megabytes at a time.

                  • Web site based blocking of cookies, pop-ups, images and more

                    Look at Opera. You have general cookies, pop-ups, images, etc settings. But you can also right-click any webpage and customize settings for it alone. For some web sites, I don't want any pop-up, even those that happen when I click on something (or especially those). In some pages I may not want any images or any images above certain resolution, as they are simply ads. And in some web sites, I don't want any flash content as I know it is only used for ads (like in forums, where you don't have any useful content in flash.

                    • Copy/Paste all form fields' content

                      I often have pages with forms from which I need to copy all the fields (be it even the text ones only) and paste into the same form for another entry. More specifically, I do it mostly with two YouTube videos where I copy title, description, keywords and even a message for subscribers (and GPS location). In some cases, it's because the content for both movies is similar enough, to use as a template, and in some because I have two movies for virtually the same thing (short and real-time).

                      But it would also be great for entering date into…

                        • Allow to use other HTML engines from Chrome or Firefox

                          IE always was problematic form developer point of view. I always need to google-hacks or I had to write additional code. Only once in my life IE works better than other browsers (IE10 and minor CSS issue works as expected in IE). Trusted engines should be easy to switch for any user. Allowing to use other engines under IE will solve a lot of coding just for IE only. Like https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WICKET-5608 special patch for one IE version. When new IE version was released patch was not needed however I need to add new script-code and rewrite functions.

                              • Show computed height and width in Layout (box model)

                                The current Layout displays auto when a height or width is not explicitly defined. This is useful as it is correctly displaying the value. However somewhere outside of that it would be very useful to see the calculated height and width for the element.

                                Preferably this would be in the Layout area, although it could also be useful when selecting DOM elements. This is feature parity with Firefox and Chrome.

                                  • Allow simultaneous, stand-alone installations of different versions of IE (8/9/10/11/etc) on the one desktop

                                    Because we all know emulation only goes so far, implement and allow stand-alone installations of IE.

                                    This would allow side by side testing/debugging of functionality across different versions of IE straight on the developer's machine.
