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. Provide MD5 hashes/checksums for current moden.ie test VMs

    I maintain some scripts to do automatic, headless testing of our web apps on Internet Explorer using your wonderful VMs from the modern.ie portal.

    Currently the workflow of the testing is split apart in two major phases:
    1. An integration testing platform that takes a customized modern.ie VM and opens IE and runs some automated, headless tests of our web application after each successful build.
    2. A meta-script that downloads a VM from the modern.ie portal and runs some additional customizations (such as adding internal certificates, etc.) needed by our testing platform. This meta script then exports the customized VM…

      You can use the following endpoint:
      https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/api/tools/vms/

      This is the JSON we use to know what to download and contains the links to everything. The links to the VMs change each time there is a new version. E.g.:

      https://az792536.vo.msecnd.net/vms/VMBuild_20180425/Parallels/MSEdge/MSEdge.Win10.Parallels.zip

      VMBuild_20180425 is the part that will change.

      The JSON also has links to the sums of each file if you are interested.

      Hope this helps!

    • Add feature detection for iframe sandbox tokens

      Add the ability for developers to determine support for sandbox tokens and react accordingly. For example:

      var iframe = document.createElement('iframe');
      if (iframe.sandbox.supports('allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox')) {
      alert('support tp');
      }

      • Support CSS hyphens property

        The `hyphens` CSS property allows the author to request automatic hyphenation, or to manually insert soft hyphens to explicitly indicate hyphenation opportunities, or to turn off hyphenation. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/hyphens

        As of EdgeHTML 16, the ePub viewer inserts automatic hyphens, but with no control (resulting in hyphens where there shouldn't be, like in code). The normal web view uses soft hyphens for manual hyphenation (the default CSS behavior), but does not have automatic hyphenation support. The `hyphens` property is not recognized at all.

            • Support Screen Capture per W3C Specification

              The Screen Capture (or screen share) specification [1] allows websites to obtain a MediaStream of the user's screen, given permission from the user.

              Firefox has implemented the feature per specification (no longer requiring a whitelist [2]), while Chrome only allows the feature when initiated from an extension.

              [1] Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/screen-capture/

                Provide high-level and detailed Internet Explorer 7 Edge Version change log: with the new Windows servicing model my customers are moving away from full-stack management and related full test cycles - in order to assess the potential impact of the changes it would be beneficial to get access to the above mentioned information

                • 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

                  • Support "SameSite" cookie option

                    The "SameSite" cookie prevents CSRF attacks by telling the browser not to send the cookie in requests that originate from sites other than the one that created it.

                    Read the spec draft here:

                    https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-west-first-party-cookies-07

                    Chrome already supports it as declared here:

                      • dashlane support

                        Dashlane claims edge does not support a certain feature to enable them to write a plugin:
                        https://csdashlane.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202699161-Request-Dashlane-on-a-Platform-or-Browser

                        Please do whatever is needed to get dashlane working on edge, it's really in excusable to not have such a popular app supported. I would then use edge immediately, thank you

                            • Implement DOM4 methods: prepend(), append(), before(), after() and replaceWith()

                              Steps to reproduce the problem:
                              1. Open the testcase http://jsbin.com/fiqacod/edit?html,js,output in Edge.

                              What is the expected behavior?
                              The test should pass.

                              What went wrong?
                              The test failed, indicating that Edge does not support the relevant DOM4 methods.

                                  • Implement HTMLLinkElement#relList and HTMLLinkElement#relList.supports

                                    In order to feature detect resource hinting rels like prefetch, preload, and dns-prefetch, please implement relList and relList.supports as added to the dom spec in https://github.com/whatwg/dom/pull/123 . relList.supports is implemented in current Firefox and Chrome browsers. It is not yet implemented in Safari, but the resource hinting is also not implemented, so feature testing for that is a true negative. However, Edge supports resource hinting, but feature testing is a false negative, which means developers have to resort to User Agent inference or forgo resource hinting, resulting in a slower experience for users.

                                    • Iterable NodeLists

                                      Edge is now the only browser without support for iterable nodelists. (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, & Safari TP all have it). By iterable nodelists I mean defining `NodeList.prototype[Symbol.iterator]` so that you can spread nodelists like `[...document.body.children]`.

                                      This boils down to implementing something like:
                                      NodeList.prototype[Symbol.iterator] = Array.prototype[Symbol.iterator];

                                        • Styleable html upload input

                                          As all developer know, the HTML input upload can't be styled, and we need to go the long way around to get a custom style for this type.

                                          My idea is remove the rules about that you can't style it, so it become easier for developers to make this input pretty
