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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Additional atributes for reading mode

    Hi! I've noticed that the reading wiev of Edge does not by default support rendering pictures and SVG content. Can you consider adding optional HTML attribute for when we WANT the content to be accessible when the user opts to view our page in Reading mode? It would be most helpful for instructions, HowTo's and other content where images are a must.

    • Support the ability to export CSV data from performance/ui responsive traces from the F-12 tools

      Often time customers want to see how often a particular thing occurred in the timeline. Like document.createElement(). Manually counting these on large web pages or highly graphical ones can be nearly impossible.

      What would be useful in order to better support IE and Edge and thus reduce the escalations to EE's would be the ability to export to a CSV or excel so that we could actually run count() functions on particular elements or occurrences.

      • 32-bit Edge VMs to support laptops without hardware virtualization

        It is completely impossible for a fairly large community of developers to test in Edge at the moment, as only 64-bit VMs are distributed. Even on 64-bit CPUs, you cannot run 64-bit VMs without hardware visualization support; this is still not common on laptops. Please reconsider the decision to lock out developers on year-old hardware from testing Edge, or compatibility of your new browser will suffer.

        • Ability to suppress running marginals when printing (@media print)

          Add a way to print a page without any marginals (footer / header), any URL showing or {pageNum} showing.

          You can do this in Chrome by adding a CSS padding.

          You can do this in Firefox by using the non-standard attribute mozNoMarginBoxes on <html>.

          An actual standard way would be preferrable of course, but any way to achieve this with common CSS or custom attribute is OK.

          • Console.log() -> support for multiple, comma separated arguments

            it is kind of annoying to get outputs like "test [Object object]".
            this is implemented in Chrome, Safari & FF for a long time already.

              • In page element adorners

                This feature would change the element selection highlighting to draw in the top left corner of the element a label with the; selector, width and height of the element.

                Proposed Design
                - Only applicable to elements that are on the page (e.g. not <script>)
                - Highlight element mode would draw text to the effect of "<selector> <width> x <height>)
                - Selector is the common selector format the DOM Explorer uses today (e.g. the auto generated selector when adding a new CSS rule)
                - Width and height should be in px from the computed value
                - Text must have contrasting background …

                • X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff

                  X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff http header lets a web server assert its resources can only be a script or a stylesheet if it is not sent with proper Content-Type headers.

                  • Extend F12 functionality to BrowserControl.

                    Good idea is to move f12 functionality to BrowserControl. So, developers who use it could get extensive possibilities.
                    For now BrowserControl cannot use 'console.log', network tab, and so on.

                      • Implement the W3C Efficient XML Interchange standard

                        EXI has now been a standard since 2008. It is time to provide this "binary XML support" to get the fat out of web transfers for all sites. I'm also trying to champion this idea with the .NET and ASP.NET communities and look forward to the day we can say it is done.
                        -thanks

                        • Option to disable auto-disabling of unsigned extensions

                          There are plugins I have either written or ported from chrome myself, which I have no intention of submitting to the store either because I intend them for my own personal use or don't own the rights to redistribute them.

                          Edge, however, wants to make life difficult for me, by automatically disabling these plugins every time I start the browser, forcing me to manually re-enable them.

                          I would very much appreciate an option somewhere, perhaps in about:flags, to disable this unwanted and unwelcome behavior. You don't need to overstep your bounds when it comes to trying to protect me; I'm…

                              When I'm debugging mapped source files and I hover over variable, I want to see the variable value.

                              Let's say I have ES2015 or TypeScript souce code, babelified, minimized and browserified. In chrome I can debug the original source code and inspect the variables. I would love to see it in Edge too.

I get random screen freezing (monitor freezes, and I have to change display settings-if it's not my primary screen or reboot to get it working again). As well, the new Skype For Business screen sharing has caching issues if you aren't in a conference (just doing peer to peer with VBSS) if I have been using Edge.

                                If I stick to Chrome or IE only, these issues don't occur. I'm not sure if the issue is in Edge or Skype For Business 2016, but if I…

                                    Take a look at the Chrome console: You can switch the current context from the main thread to every web worker which got created. This is extremely useful for debugging workers.

                                      • Allow browser.tabs.executeScript when in Reading View

                                        This would allow browser extensions to add features to Edge's Reading View.
