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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. RTC Data Channels

    Data channels allow a web application to send and receive generic application data peer-to-peer.

    This feature request is specifically about the *data channel* component of the WebRTC specification. This is separate from Object RTC and WebRTC 1.0 feature requests because the Platform Status site breaks out data channels separately.

    RTC Data Channels:

  4. HTTP Client Hints

    Header for proactive content negotiation; just as the Accept header allowed clients to indicate what formats they prefer, Client Hints allow clients to indicate a list of device and agent specific preferences.

  5. Support WebRTC Datachannels in Workers

    I would like to propose that we support WebRTC Data Channel in Workers
    (`WebWorker`, `ServiceWorker`, etc.)

    WebRTC DataChannel is basically a drop-in replacement for `WebSocket`,
    except it's peer-to-peer. For all the same reasons that `WebSocket`
    was added to the `Worker` spec, we should add WebRTC DataChannel.

    Here are some possible use cases:

    - DataChannel in a `ServiceWorker` would support the use case of "peer
    assisted delivery" a la [PeerCDN](https://www.peercdn.com/faq.html),
    CDN/P2P CDN video streaming delivery, file transfer, etc.

    - DataChannel in a `WebWorker` would support offloading CPU intensive
    data transfer and subsequent processing to another thread.

    - DataChannel in…

  6. SSL key logging (aka SSLKEYLOGFILE)

    SSL key logging is a feature that browsers export TLS keys into a text file, which can be used by Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffic. This feature can be enabled on Firefox and Chrome by setting SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable, which is a path to the log file.

    This feature is useful for debugging network error and for learning structures of TLS-encrypted application layer protocols (such as encrypted HTTP/2) with Wireshark.

  8. Ajax caching working like other browsers

    Internet Explorer caches ajax responses too agressively. In the modern SPA world, everything is working through AJAX request, so it is more and more important, to not cache automatically all of the AJAX responses. Firefox and Chrome is working normal with AJAX responses, only IE caches too agressively.

  9. Karaoke Web Standard

    Provides semantic language processing for two-way communication with a remote host. This new interface creates a system-to-system forced sonic recognition on the receiving party.

  10. TCP raw sockets

    Please support the upcoming Raw Sockets API (not "web-sockets")
    https://www.w3.org/TR/tcp-udp-sockets/
    This enables a whole new class of applications!

    Chrome does it already with "chrome.sockets.tcp"

    THANKS!

  13. Support TLS to the proxy

    Both Chrome (http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/secure-web-proxy) and now Firefox 33+ support connecting to a CERN-style proxy over TLS instead of using unencrypted sockets (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378637). They've also enhanced the Proxy AutoConfig system to support the "HTTPS" token instead of the "PROXY" token, meaning that organizations could conceivably start to deploy PAC files that work for other browsers but fail in IE.

    WinINET should consider adding TLS-to-the-Proxy for Interop and for the reasons described in the Firefox bug.

  15. 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).

  16. fix edge so that it can resolve computer name to localhost

  17. 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.

  19. Allow XMLHttpRequest to handle "data:..." URLs - like all other browsers

    Currently on Edge (also on IE), trying to fetch a data-URL like "data:text/plain;charset=ISO...,...text..." fails - as it is considered cross-domain.
    All other major browsers allow this.
    This is useful for converting "exotic" charsets.
