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".
(thinking…)

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. Prevent developer tools from causing "(not responding)" and non responsive main UI thread

    Currently when I open and close developer tools its often puts edge into an apparent "not responding" state for a few seconds. This makes the platform seem very low quality despite the fact edge in general is great.

    This also has the effect of if you are paused in a debugging session on a breakpoint you cannot just press F5 to refresh the page you have to stop the debugger since the UI is locked up... Chrome/Firefox/Safari doesn't do this.

    • Google map API cannot work on Microsoft Edge?

      When I write a script src for google map API, chrome, IE, Firefox, sougou could call back the result without any problem, but ME tells "script5009, 'google' is not defined."

      Is there anything for ME compatibility I missed?

        • The documentation for VirtualBox VMs is lacking one key step:

          Users need to know that after unzipping the .ova file, they have to import the virtual machine via File > Import Appliance.

          I was baffled and nearly gave up, wondering if I'd downloaded the wrong format file.

          • WebGL Shader Binary Caching

            Fairly trivial to implement, and Chrome does this well. Simply caching the shader binaries means subsequent compilations can be skipped and cached binaries loaded.
            For web pages loading significant shader programs, this can be a huge improvement.

              • Debugger Change downloadscript to the actual file name downloaded

                Took me a long time to figure which "downloadscript" that I need to debug from. I don't want to use the tooltip to search for my javascript code. Use of "downloadscript" is a very bad idea. Chrome and Firefox shows actual javascript file name.

                • A Web Extension should be able to uninstall itself: implement .management.uninstallSelf

                  The browser.management.uninstallSelf() function in js makes it possible for extensions to remove themselves when circumstances require. The fewer extensions installed, the smaller the attack surface on a browser.

                  Combined with one-click (inline) installation, this makes possible some use cases for temporarily installed extensions.

                  • Unable to Undo code change in the Debugger.

                    I made a change to a javascript code in the Debugger and unable to figure out how to undo the change without refreshing the Edge browser. There should be an undo button (or a re-do button)

                      • UI interface for dns resolving

                        I understood that because edge runs in a sandbox, it has problems using the hosts file.

                        Maybe we can have an u.i. where we can set where the domains have to resolve to. So we don't need the hosts file anymore.

                          • support for constructing RTCRtpSender with 'kind' and without transport

                            Newer versions of the ORTC specification allow constructing RTCRtpSender with a ‘kind’ and make the transport argument optional:
                            http://draft.ortc.org/#rtcrtpsender*

                            Edge only implements a version of the spec requiring a MediaStreamTrack and the transport:
                            https://rawgit.com/aboba/edgertc/master/msortc-rs3.html#rtcrtpsender*

                            Supporting the current specification is required for shimming webrtc 1.0 ontop of ORTC. Currently I am working around this restriction with a javascript shim that does a lazy initialization of the native RTCRtpSender:
                            https://github.com/otalk/rtcpeerconnection-shim/pull/41

                            (previously filed as https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/14627286/ )

                            • Cancel find operations in the DOM Explorer

                              This feature would add an 'x' button the search box in the debugger and DOM Explorer that would cancel a find operation once started.

                              Proposed Design
                              - After committing a search and locking the text box a red 'x' is added in the far right of the control (in place of the clear button) that once pressed will cancel the find operation and return the text box to the edit state (placing focus at the end of the text)
                              - Is in tab order after the (now) read only text box
                              - Will not clear the text box
                              - Will…

                                    I was sent to page to download IE 10 from one of your own searches, result - page does not exists. It is really dumb to have something in search and sent people there while you already kill resource. And message there is at least unapropriate, but get plus for sense of humor.
