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.

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:

          • Implement 'once' event listener option

            The DOM Standard defines a 'once' option for addEventListener() which causes the callback to only be called once, upon the next occurrence of the given event type, after which the listener gets automatically removed:
            https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-addeventlisteneroptions-once

            The effect is similar to jQuery's popular $.one() method.

            CanIUse entry: http://caniuse.com/#feat=once-event-listener
            MDN article: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/EventTarget/addEventListener#Parameters

              • position: sticky

                position: sticky is a new way to position elements and is conceptually similar to position: fixed. The difference is that a stickily positioned element behaves like position: relative within its parent, until a given offset threshold is met.

                Spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-position/#sticky-pos

                  • add support for web assembly as early as possible, keeping pace with mozilla

                    In line with webgl support, be ahead if the curve in supporting the emerging web assembly standard.

                    Be ahead of the curve or at least on par with Mozilla, to be first or joint first in supporting this exciting new capability (even in beta or early release testing)

                    Don't make us wait!!

                    • ECMAScript Shared Memory and Atomics

                      Specification: http://lars-t-hansen.github.io/ecmascript_sharedmem/shmem.html
                      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Enables atomic operations on shared memory locations. Allows for the role of "threads" to be played by Web Workers in web browser environments.

                      Use cases:
                      - Support for threaded code in programs written in other languages that are translated to asm.js or plain JS or a combination of the two, notably C++ but also JVM and CIL bytecode, Halide, Clojure, Rust, and similar safe languages.

                      - Support for hand-written JS or JS+asm.js that makes use of multiprocessing facilities for select tasks, such as image processing, asset management, or game AI.

                      • Force Active and Focus Pseudo States

                        This feature would add the ability to set the focus and active pseudo states from the DOM Explorer pseudo state checkboxes.

                        Proposed Design
                        - New checkboxes on the pseudo state toggles
                        - Would not fire any JavaScript events (e.g. focus, blur)
                        - Force on only no force off (off toggle state will follow browser default)
