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.

  1. ReactJS (and possibly Redux) tooling

    I would love to see some tooling surrounding ReactJS development. While I believe that on your competitors (Chrome/Firefox) these were developed by the community (or the vendor themselves...FB). I would love to see a CTA by Microsoft for this to be developed possibly following the example of Taylor Otwell surrounding his CTA to have Vue.js testing abilities added to the library.

    Granted if Microsoft were to build the tools that would be amazing, but I don't think (in the day and age where Microsoft is so open source) that Microsoft calling on the community for a specific task should be…

    • fix error : <datalist> hide part of screen when filtering

      there is a displaying bug :
      When <datalist> performs a filter, it continues to hide the same part of the screen as when <datalist> displayed all <option>.

      For example: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?
      filename=tryhtml5_datalist

      when you click on the input and type a 'i', it hides a part of the text in an ugly way

          • Implement the infinite value of the resolution media feature

            When you're rendering to PDF, this is a vector format, so there's not actual limit on the resolution. The resolution media feature has been extended in media queries 4 to be able to express that.

            • Implement the update media feature from MQ4

              The update media query from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that responsively update the screen, from those that cannot, or those that can but only slowly.

              Authors can use that to style things differently on print vs ebook readers, even though both media are paginated. This kind of nuance was not possible to express just with @media print {...}

              The specification is over here:

              • Implement the overflow media features from MQ4

                The overflow-block and overflow-inline media queries from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that paginate vs media that scroll or media that clip using media features instead of media types.

                That way, you can do

                @media (overflow-block: paged) {
                /* do something smart for pagination */
                }

                and that will do the right thing when printing AND in ebook readers that paginate instead of scrolling, instead of

                @media print {
                /* do something smart for pagination */
                }

                which would work on print but fail in ebook readers.

                The specification is over here:
                https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mf-overflow-block

                • Implement the color-gamut media feature from MQ4

                  Implement the color-gamut media feature: it lets authors detect screens with broader than usual color gamut, like the newer macs and iphones.

                  This is already supported in Chrome and Safari

                  • Support Media Queries level 4 syntax improvements

                    CSS Media Quries Level 4 bring in a bunch of syntactic improvements. They make media queries much more readable and maintainable.

                    https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mq-syntax

                    Here's an example:

                    Before:

                    @media (min-width: 20em), not all and (min-height: 40em) {
                    @media not all and (pointer: none) {

                    }
                    }

                    After:

                    @media ((width >= 20em) or (height < 40em)) and (pointer) {

                    }

                    • Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed

                      Often when a page loads, loading indicator disappears very quickly, and I don't have visual feedback that somethings are being processed in background, I just get an empty page, and when I start to think that the link is dead or something else went wrong, page suddenly appears.

                      • 3DES only available for local domains/router segments/local networks if needed. NOT FOR THE INTERNET.

                        SCHANNEL : The 3DES Cipher should be used - if needed at all - ONLY selectively and definitely kept blocked - disabled - for Internet Connections ranging outside of a local Network boundary (or outside of proxied Segments or NAT Domains or also when not being used through either encrypted VPN Tunnels).
                        I recommend this because it is weak. (64bit ciphers are generally considered weak now because of their limitation).

                        • Support for @counter-style

                          Related w3 document:
                          https://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/

                          The Internationalization WG observes that Edge does not pass the tests found here:

                          See https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/counter-styles.en.html (click on the large text in the left-most column to run the tests)

                          Several groups have observed the need for counter style support. The Arabic Layout TF finds that it is needed for Persian support. Richard Ishida reports that vertical text lists require it as well. Firefox is observed to provide this support.

                          • Support bidi isolation for elements with dir attributes, and for bdi

                            This is a specific request for Edge to support bidi isolation per the HTML specification where the dir attribute and the bdi element are used. The wording in the request for dir=auto [1] is equally valid here.

                            Support for isolation is really a fundamental requirement for languages using Arabic and Hebrew and other scripts such as Thaana, Syriac, N'Ko, etc. Note also that the Arabic script is the second most widely used script around the world after the Latin script, so this affects a lot of people. And the lack of isolation is not an edge-case problem (see worked examples…

                            • Add console.hex() to be able to log binary data to the console

                              With binary data becoming more and more common in the browser, thanks to ArrayBuffers and TypedArrays and all the specifications that use them, we need to be able to properly log these data types to the console.

                              On the surface this is possible with console.log(), but is that is severely lacking when it comes to binary data. So I would like to propose the ability to log binary data in the classic hex dump format. Having a console.hex() command in the browser would certainly my my life of lot easier and probably a lot of others that work with binary…

                                The bookmarks managing section is really poor. Hard to organize. Cannot move, delete or edit multiple links at the same time.
                                Can we have a way of manipulating links and folders more like we do with files? Select multiple links at a time to be moved, sorted, etc.

                                      • Allow copying computed CSS values

                                        Currently, I only have the option to right click and choose Copy from the menu, which copies the whole `property: value` pair. I would like to be able to copy just the value so that I don't have to delete the `property: ` part every time.
