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.

                • Implement :focus-within from Selectors 4

                  Tons of UIs include elements that are not visible unless the user interacts with their parent or ancestor. Think popup menus, delete or edit buttons, floating formatting toolbars, copy buttons, editing popups and so on. The list is endless. This is a good way to reduce visual clutter.
                  However, this is often done in an inaccessible way, just by using :hover, because making it accessible requires JS, since :focus does not apply to ancestors. However, 1 in 2 people writing HTML/CSS are not comfortable with JavaScript so keyboard accessibility (and usability, as many of us are keyboard users by choice)…

                    • :has()

                      https://drafts.csswg.org/selectors/#relational

                      The relational pseudo-class, ‘:has()#’, is a functional pseudo-class taking a relative selector list as an argument. It represents an element if any of the relative selectors, when absolutized and evaluated with the element as the :scope elements, would match at least one element.

                        • headless browser for testing

                          It would be great if IE could be started as a headless browser (like PhantomJS) for running unit tests, taking screenshots, measuring load time, etc without having a browser window pop up. Running automated tests on IE often fails because the browser either fails to start up or shut down properly. With a headless browser multiple browser instances can be run in parallel without taking up screen space.

                                • Add support for the arithmetic coded JPEG, which saves 10% of file size losslessly

                                  As arithmetic coding patents for JPEG have now expired, it would be nice to support arithmetic coding in the JPEG. It will allow recompress existing JPEG files using arithmetic coding losslessly, as the result size of all JPEG files will be reduced by 10%.

                                        • Native messaging!

                                          Please implement Native messaging mechanism! Internet Banking users are used to sign their contracts via a smart card (which uses WinCrypt API). Nowadays, after deprecation of applets, there is no other way to access Windows API and use a smart card in order to make a trusted digital signature.
