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".

        • Line numbers in console

          This feature would show the source location (line & column) of a message logged via console.*.

          Proposed design
          - Same look and feel as other messages that have source information
          - Applicable to console (info, warn, error, assert, log, dir, dirxml, time/timeEnd)

            • feedback hub link broken! Edge fails video from webcam, NO ERROR MESSG, works with legacy doc format but no user will be able to find it

              needs to provide useful error messages / user feedback so that a normal user can get legacy pages to display
              some legacy pages will NEVER be updated - eg. webcam
              IT MUST BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!
              there is no point having a link to "Feedback Hub" if it returns "page not found"

              • Source links for hrefs printed to the console

                This feature would scan (via a regex - eugh) for any URL inside a message and when found convert them into a hyperlink that will navigate the debugger.

                Proposed Design
                - Use the same logic as the debugger for detecting and canonicalization a URL into an absolute URL
                - Hyperlinks should appear as hyperlinks and when activated navigate the debugger

                    • Arabic text in alert() should appear in RTL by default

                      When using an alert()-statement in which arabic text is included (like alert("דךגלכחדךלגיכלגדיכ\nלחידליגדלכדגכ\nלחידלגיכ");
                      ) , the alignment of the message will appear in Left-To-Right (LTR), unless you specify the direction in the html-attribute. Chrome detects automatically, that these characters need RTL-direction and shows them accordingly in RTL directly.

                        If I open the file upload window without specifying the accept attribute, it will accept all files.
                        However, an option list is created so that you can select another type.

                        The first attachment is the pre-requested file. The second attachment is what you want.

                            I have this problem where Edge does not render the Ravie font in a shown PDF file (the text in that font just does not show up!). In Chrome, IE, Adobe Reader etc. etc. it all works correctly ...

                              This feature would use some rule checking against the acc tree and properties to point out potential issues. For example when an img is missing a name (say because of a missing alt attribute) or a labelledby is pointing to an invalid node etc.

                                • Javascript debugger break when specified file URI has been loaded

                                  Sometimes with 3rd party libraries, they load script files programmatically. It would help narrow down who is loading a specific file if you could break in the debugger when a specific URI/regex pattern is requested. Either with adding a script element dynamically, or via AJAX.

                                  • Next Billion Users.

                                    The average website is at least 2MB in size. This does not bode well for the next billion users. Users who are coming online for the very first time. Users who come online with sub optimal 2G connections. They miss out on all the benefits of the internet.

                                    Javascript libraries and frameworks add to the bloat. Instead of having each page download and use the Js files. Can a js framework be built into the browser itself. We can consider the browser to be a platform. Also, considering that a JS engine isn't enough. A step further will be highly…

                                      • My Microsoft Edge does not open so I cannot get Internet Explorer. When I try to open it, I get this message; "This app can't open"

                                        My Microsoft does not ope. I get this message: This app ca't open. Microsoft Edge can't be opened using the built-in Administrator account. Sign in with a different account and try again"
                                        Where do I go to do the signing in? Nothing seems to work. Do I have to get rid of this Microsoft Edge?

                                          What is the best way to put in a feature request to the IE/Edge team?
