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.

      • Spread operator for object literals

        This feature is currently Stage 3 and is implemented by Firefox stable, Chrome stable, Safari Preview, and Node stable.

        This is really useful for shallow cloning objects:

        let objClone = { ...obj };

        • Will `proxy` API be supported in Microsoft Edge extensions

          I currently manage a top Proxy extension in Chrome, and will like to port it to the new Microsoft Edge.

          However, the `proxy` API seem to be missing/not implemented. Is this true?

          Will this fact change? Any timeline?

          • Support browser_url_overrides to allow customized net tab page, etc. (since users can't set their own choice of new tab page...)

            Edge currently offers very few options for controlling the new tab experience, and the ones it does have are... not popular, judging by the Windows Insider feedback. Allowing extensions to override things like New Tab page would simultaneously address this concern and allow more Chrome extensions to be ported, making Edge a much nicer browser to use.

            • Support the `inert` attribute

              Trapping focus in modal dialogs or preventing focus in background layers in modern web applications is extremely difficult and error-prone. Developers either have to walk the DOM and disable every focusable control with tabindex="-1" and `aria-hidden="true"` on a parent element, or do some tricky JavaScript to maintain focus inside of an element. Many developers get this wrong or they don't do it at all, creating horribly inaccessible experiences for keyboard and screen reader users.

              The inert attribute currently being explored in the WICG solves this problem by providing a mechanism to disable entire subtrees in HTML. By setting `inert` on…

                          IE falling behind before it was released. All major browsers has release cycles less than IE has between announcement and release.
                          Also, old version do not get updates.
                          Drop version from name and start actively supporting IE.

                          • F12 emulation of slow network connections

                            This feature would enable the emulation of different network connections such as 3G, 4G etc... changing network throughput, latency and packet loss to match typical conditions for that type of network.

                            Proposed Design
                            - Impacts just the page being debugged
                            - Dropdown on emulation tool to select from the different connection options (exact list tbd)
                            - Fits in with the persistence of the rest of the emulation settings

                                • Support "wheel" events for 2-finger scrolling on Precision Touch Pads (like every other browser does, and every other trackpad does)

                                  Microsoft Edge is the only browser that doesn't support 2-finger scrolling properly. Sure, it scrolls the web page, but it doesn't fire wheel events. It instead just lets the OS handle it. This breaks critical functionality not only on the web, but also in many Windows 10 apps that are built using js/html (which is executed by the Edge engine). The biggest example is Flipboard, which doesn't let you "flip" through pages using the scroll gesture on the precision trackpad that Microsoft's own Hardware ships with (every Surface Pro / Book for the past 3+ years).

                                  To verify the problem,…

                                      • Provide "apps" mode for websites like Chrome Application Shortcuts

                                        Please add support for opening websites in "app" mode (like Chrome app launcher mode).

                                        Chrome allows us to create application shortcuts for a website.
                                        When we open an app shortcut, Chrome is launched in a special "app" mode without address bar / browser chrome which is very nice to give websites / intranet web apps a "real app feeling" especially in Windows 10.

                                        It would be great if Edge had this feature. (maybe with the ability to specify a "window color" so we could easily create web apps that look like native Windows 10 apps and optional back/forward buttons in…
