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".

  2. Support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT

    TLS 1.3, the next version of security protocol for private and authenticated communication, is in the final phase of specification.
    Cloudflare already supports it, Chrome 56 plans to support it January 2017 and Firefox in March 2017.
    Edge should not stay behind and support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT as well, ideally in the upcoming Creator's Update already.

  3. Support ChaCha20/Poly1305 cipher suites in Edge/Schannel

    ChaCha20/Poly1305 cipher suites are considered as the best stream cipher replacement for the obsolete RC4 stream cipher suites. It's also the only AEAD alternative to AES-GCM cipher suites right now.

    It's already supported by Google Chrome, Android and Opera and just recently patch with ChaCha20/Poly1305 landed in OpenSSL library.
    https://github.com/openssl/openssl/commit/bd989745b7a4796dceff89d93b6b7ac1561c6227

    I think it would be helpful to support it in Schannel and Edge as well.

  5. Write Edge in managed code

    I know you've tried to GC the native code, but it's not enough.

    There are still UAF bugs. There are still type bugs. It's time to put an end to them once and for all. Write in managed code. We know that Microsoft can create environments that are type safe; it's time to actually use one.

  7. Support TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV for preventing protocol downgrade attacks

    As described in this article:
    http://www.exploresecurity.com/poodle-and-the-tls_fallback_scsv-remedy/
    TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV is an effective remedy for protocol downgrade attacks on TLS. Without it possible MITM can force the server to use weaker protocol version instead of the best supported protocol signaled by the client.

    Chrome and Firefox support it on client-side, except Edge and IE, and lot of top web sites support it on server-side as well.

  9. Allow server detection of Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) support

    Allow detection (from server side) of web clients which are being managed by domain and for which we know the IWA authentication (SPNEGO, NTLM, Kerberos) is available.

    The goal is to send IWA authentication request only to supported web clients, but NOT for web clients in which it is not handled (non domain edge, mobile and such) as sending a status code 401 + WWW-Authenticate HTTP header for those client leads to a very bad user experience with a login popup. Users with a web client without IWA support are proposed other classic authentication methods.

    In previous IE version, such…

  10. UWP WebView should support HSTS and Mixed Cotnent Blocking

    Just like HSTS and Mixed Content blocking works in Edge, there should be option to enable it in Windows 10 UWP WebView as well.
    This is an important security feature that should not be omitted in WebView.

  13. Aggressively promote the replacement of HTTP with HTTPS

    The video linked below makes it very clear on why HTTPS should always be used instead of HTTP.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BNIkw4Ao9w

    Currently, all that happens in Microsoft Edge when you connect to a web page through HTTP is that a "🛈" icon appears in the address bar. Since the web page still works, there is little pressure on web developers to drop support of HTTP in favour of using HTTPS. In essence, by treating HTTP almost identically to HTTPS in Microsoft Edge, Microsoft is not doing its part in promoting a safer, more secure, privacy-respecting Internet.

    Microsoft should be a leader—more aggressive…

  14. Support the OCSP Must Staple TLS Extension

    As described in this post by Mozilla:
    https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2015/11/23/improving-revocation-ocsp-must-staple-and-short-lived-certificates/
    or here:
    https://www.grc.com/revocation/ocsp-must-staple.htm

    OCSP Must-Staple makes use of the recently specified TLS Feature Extension. When a CA adds this extension to a certificate, it requires the browser to ensure a stapled OCSP response is present in the TLS handshake. If an OCSP response is not present, the connection will fail and the browser will display a non-overridable error page.

  15. Bring back HTTP-Authentication (Basic Authentication) credential storing checkbox

    Edge is useless without the checkbox to store HTTP-Auth credentials.

    The workaround by adding sites with Internet Explorer to the trusted sites to then get this checkbox in Edge is ridicoulus.

  16. Add "__Secure-" and "__Host-" cookie prefix support

    This allows a website to ensure that cookies are set with the "secure" attribute (only used over HTTPS), and optionally only be allowed for the current host (set without a Domain attribute, and the path is set to "/").

    This has been implemented in Chrome 49:
    https://googlechrome.github.io/samples/cookie-prefixes/

    Explanation:
    https://chloe.re/2016/04/27/cookieprefixes/

    Spec:
    https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-west-cookie-prefixes-05

  17. Don't open the same websites when I used Task Manager to end Microsoft Edge Process

    In previous version of Internet Explorer, if I enter any websites that bombarding me with popups or trying to trick users to click on confirm buttons before allowing to leave the site. I would just simply end the process in task manager and reopen explorer. However, this does not seem to work with Edge, once I end the process in task manager and start Edge again, it remembers the sites that I was on, and the popup continues! Please fix this by either prompt me the options if I want to restore the sites I was viewing or just open…

  18. support XML transformation with XSLT from file:// url

    With IE6/7/8/9/10/11 it is possible to transform XML with XSLT by double-clicking on the XML file, i.e. from file:// url.

    If you try the same with Microsoft Edge (RMB click, open with Microsoft Edge), it wont' work. But if the same XML/XSLT files are served from some http:// url, it will work in Edge too.

    This demonstrates that the XSLT rendering is working fine.

    It would seem that Edge enforces the same-origin limitation as Google Chrome/Chromium, see Chromium issue https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=47416 "Allow a directory tree to be treated as a single origin (loosen file: URL restrictions)". But this is only a…

  19. Add a new flag allow-top-navigation-with-gesture

    An already established standard (https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/browsers.html#attr-iframe-sandbox-allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation), this new flag requires top-level browsing context navigation from a sandboxed iframe only through gesture. This prevents malicious auto-redirection from 3rd party content while still allowing top-level navigation
