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.

  1. Improve default focus style

    The default "dotted outline" style for elements with focus (e.g. links), is not particularly easy to see, especially if you have poor vision.

    Can this default be changed to look more like the focus style on OSX, which is a thick blue outline.

    You can see the difference by changing the "normal style" and "focus style" radio field at the top of this page:

  2. Implement the Iaccessible2 API

    Iaccessible2 - http://accessibility.linuxfoundation.org/a11yspecs/ia2/docs/html/index.html is an open source BSD licensed accessibility API it is implemented in Google Chrome and Firefox. Implementing it in IE/Spartan would mean that assistive tech implementers would have an interoperable accessibility API in all major windows browsers, and could therefore focus their limited resources on supporting it rather than having to implement UI automation just for Microsoft browsers. It would also lead to less buggy implementations of accessibility APIs in browsers. A win for users and implementers.

  5. Add VTTCue and WebVTT support

    WebVTT: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WebVTT_API
    VTTCue: https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/#the-vttcue-interface
    Supported by all other browser vendors in Chrome, FF, Safari.
    Also implement ::CUE pseudo-element to enable support in CVAA.
    Currently all player developers need to create their own subtitles/captions implementations due to browser having fragmented support in all of the above which makes supporting accessibility very hard and cumbersome.
    Having you support this will ensure better interoperability.
    Please consider migrating the solution to IE11 as well as you still have it on platforms which are widely supported and EOL is not near as it seems.

    Also opened as an issue in the platform tracker:
    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/14623778/

  6. I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

    I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

    This includes Flash, HTML5, GIF, MP4, or any type of video that may be invented.

    What would be ideal is to have a new set of controls in Internet Options that would allow the user to control/override the video controls in all web pages.

    For example, HTML5 has the <video> ... </video> element that has certain attributes:
    autobuffer
    autoplay
    controls
    loop

    The user should be able to control each these attributes on a global basis for all web pages.…

  7. Microsoft Edge - Opening office documents from SharePoint Online in the Desktop Applications

    We use Windows 10 and Edge Browser 44.17763.1.0
    in SharePoint Online on Classic Sites we have Document Libraries with the setting in Library Settings > Advanced settings> Open in Desktop Application
    When opening the library in Edge and clicking on New > Word Document

    Result: New File gets opened in the Browser.
    Existing Files open in Rich Client.
    Expected Result: New File Should be opened in Word 2016 Application.

    Further Testing:
    This behavior has been observed against SharePoint 2016 Sites.

    We tested on Modern Sites and here we noticed an not consistent behaviour: We had the files opened directly in…

  8. 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.

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

  9. Mouse selection of text on a web page cannot be subsequently extended with the keyboard

    Using touch, a user can create a selection, and little "grabbers" are rendered allowing the user to expand/contract the selection. However, this post-selection-adjustment feature only works for touch.

    When using this mouse, the selection has no "grabbers".

    In both cases, the keyboard cannot be used to adjust the selection. If, instead, I use Firefox or Chrome, the selection can be adjusted by using the keyboard "SHIFT" + arrow keys, to adjust the active selection.

    Please bring this functionality to Microsoft Edge. It will also help with selection keyboard accessibility.

  10. Implement overlay scroll bar (ms-overflow-style)

    When switching between `overflow: scroll` and `overflow: hidden`, the <body> padding changed.
    It is annoying, overlay scroll bar can avoid hack.

    I can use overlay scroll bar at IE (CSS), Chrome (flag), Firefox (add-on),
    Edge should also.

  11. landmark navigation

    I would like to see a feature for navigating to "landmark regions" using the keyboard. Very similar to the way the F6 key works in the Windows Explorer (try it! :)

    Landmark regions can be defined by the page author by either using ARIA landmark roles (http://w3c.github.io/aria/aria/aria.html#landmark_roles), or HTML5 elements that default to having landmark roles (see summary, below, for a list of these elements).
    Note that the generic landmark role="region" - and its corresponding html "section" element - must have a label before it is considered a true landmark, whereas nav, aside, etc do not technically require…

  13. Add copy link address / url to right-click menu

    This is a somewhat common daily use case for me. It is difficult for me to save every image and then host it to share it.

    Also, using the console commands to parse and filter the img URL is also difficult. E.g.

    > $$('img').forEach(function(element) { console.log(element.currentSrc);});

  15. Fix Insufficient colour contrast of select box items in Windows 10

    go to any website with a select box in IE11 or Edge on Windows 10

    Click/tab to expand for options

    The selected/active element has white text and light blue background, that has a contrast ratio of 2.9:1. That makes it inaccessible.

    Resolution: Provide a darker background with higher contrast ratio

  17. Improve default error style

    When a page contains several input fields that have been marked as required, and the user submits the form, Edge will add a red outline on all fields, and show an error bubble next to the first field with an error (like most browsers).

    It's possible for a website to use the :invalid pseudo selector to add their own styles. But if the field is shown with default styles, then it should be the case that "color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information", which is the case when the error bubble has disappeared.

    This means…

  20. set aside sigle tab

    Some time you don't want to set aside all tabs, but only one. To do it now, you have to detach this tab, and on new window press "set these tabs aside" button. It would be great to have "Set aside" button in context menu of an individual tab.
