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".

  1. Persist active document in debugger

    This feature would persist which document was last open in the debugger.

    Proposed Design
    - The URL of the last open document will be persisted and if F12 is opened on a page containing that document the document will be made the active tab in the debugger
    - If the document hasn't been loaded by the page then the default (root) document should be shown

      • List "not supported" tags on http://dev.modern.ie/platform/status for things like <embed>

        How about a list of 'not supported' tags like on the http://dev.modern.ie/platform/status page. Makes it easy to show devs that "hey, just not gonna be supported".

        • Implement the same SSL fallback mechanism in old versions of IE

          IE11 soon will will prevent insecure fallback to SSL 3.0 for Protected Mode sites. The same security mechanism should be applied to the older versions of IE11 as well.

          • touch keyboard in desktop version of internet explorer

            You removed activex and plugin support from metro ie. Fine. But every time a video doesn't work or a plugin is needed the desktop version is opened. Then you have to manually click the keyboard icon to input anything. Did you even test this "experience" before shipping windows 8? Needless to say it works in Chrome.
            Try filling a form with the desktop version on a touch device. Then repeat for a week and tell me this isn't needed. I'll go as far as to call it a bug.

            • Evaluate to console

              This feature would add an "Evaluate in console" to the DOM tree context menu that would send the selected element to the console (same as console.log(<element>).

              Proposed Design
              - New context menu item "&Evaluate in console" to be enabled for any markup node in the DOM tree in the DOM Explorer.
              - The command will decode the image (based on the media type supplied in the URI) to a bitmap that can be copied to the clipboard

              • Element highlighting on SVG elements

                Support element highlighting on SVG elements. Currently, the blue outline of elements doesn't appear on SVG elements, which makes it difficult to debug display issues of SVGs.

                • Find results pane

                  This feature would add a "Find Results' pane to the debugger. When carrying out a find across files operation in the debugger (by pressing enter) the results will be shown in a pane that lists out all the matches along with a preview. The list of results can be used to navigate the editor to the results.

                  Proposed Design
                  - A light dismiss pane that will replace the console window when displayed
                  - Navigating the results pane (mouse or keyboard) will change the editor view but will not set focus in the editor
                  - Activating a match will change the…

                  • Microsoft Edge DevTools Protocol:Browser setters and geters for WindowBounds, WindowState and AddressBar visibility.

                    Methods should be added to set and get window bounds, state and address bar visibility.

                    E.G. in chrome:
                    Browser.setWindowState()
                    Browser.getWindowState()
                    Browser.setWindowBounds()
                    Browser.getWindowBounds()
                    and the command line argument --app="<address>"

                    These allow us to make desktop applications using Edge and I feel this is pretty vital especially as a modern replacement for the IE COM API.

                    • debugger breakpoint (as in IE) using Visual Studio with the statement "debugger"

                      Could you please make as IE and Visual Studio, where you set in javascript the "debugger" word and then when I run the debugger I get a nice stop into that script. This would be such a great and useful feature...

                      Thank you!

                      • Browser de-animator feature

                        Request de-animator feature for MS Edge will let people use their browser again at work and in an office environment. This feature will let users open all browser windows without any distracting animations or auto-playing video. Flash or html5 graphics will be frozen, displayed in black and white, non-animated. No surprise sounds or video will be played out loud. This will replace the need for ad block and pacify advertisers at the same time; because it does not completely block their messages. But it does restore some dignity to the browsing experience for whom would again like to use the…

                          • Always show most recent console messages

                            At the moment it's really annoying to always have to manually scroll to the bottom of the console to see the most recent messages, especially when trying to debug this way.

                            Please let the console auto scroll or stick to the bottom so the most recent messages are always displayed

                              needs a fix to be able to continue with online banking from the US. The Itaú bank is in Brazil, South America, and I have no trouble with Windows 7 performing the task.

                                • Allow for the import of Outlook's contact list into Edge. This will make sending links to friends a lot easier.

                                  Make Outlooks contact list accessible in Edge, just as it is in Internet Explorer. This would make sending links by email in Edge much easier.

                                    • Blob support for IndexedDB

                                      Blobs in IndexedDB in DevTools show up as blank. They are saved just fine in Chrome. Let me save blobs in IndexedDB.

                                      • Add a "standards" option (or something) on the category dropdown, please

                                        I'm surprised that if you have a "miscellaneous" in the dropdown above, there is no "web standards" or "standards" dropdown. This would be a good place to collect all the ideas that are standards related, right?

                                        • Copy disabled properties in the CSS pane as commented out

                                          When we untick a property in a CSS rule, the changes pane show it with a reddish background, so it's aware of the change, the proposal is that when we select the Copy option, the property is copied with /* .. */ so that we can keep track better all the changes as we will need to test again in other browsers.
