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.

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

    • Support HTML5 drag and drop of files from Explorer

      IE11 supports dragging files from the desktop/File Explorer to upload to for example OneDrive or other sites which use the HTML5 file upload API and support drag and drop.
      This doesn't work in Edge. This is a quite serious regression.

          • Create 64-bit versions of http://dev.modern.ie/ virtual machines

            Please create 64-bit VM's (i.e. the free VM's that have different OS and IE versions and last three months before "expiring").

            Even on a very fast machine, the http://dev.modern.ie/ virtual machines are slower than they could be due to their 32-bit OS.

            So making a 64-bit set available would increase productivity for many users of these VM's.

            Another reason for 64-bit VM's is for the ability to test on 64-bit machines (I've seen this mentioned on other message boards about modern.ie VM's).

            THANK YOU for providing VM's!

            • Support Chrome's improved reload behavior or cache-control:immutable

              Both Chrome and Firefox have improved the performance of the reload button. Chrome no longer revalidates subresoruces on reloads. Firefox supports the cache-control:immutable header as a way for sites to signal that they do not want their sub resources revalidated before their expiration

              Facebook's internal statistics show that browsers that do not support this behavior cause 10-20% more requests for JS/CSS because users use the reload button to refresh the site.

                • Support for the ImageData constructor

                  The ImageData constructor is particularly useful for creating new image data in a worker.

                  https://html.spec.whatwg.org/#imagedata

                  This has been implemented in Firefox (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=959958) and Chromium (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=338804). Support in IE would be great.

                          Chrome 34+ and Firefox 34+ have updated the their prefixed matchesSelector implementation to just matches. IE should do the same for accordance reasons.

                            Destructuring assignment allows extracting data from arrays or objects using a syntax that mirrors array and object literals.

                                    • Support new cursor properties of CSS3 to enhance usability

                                      You should implement the new cursor properties of CSS3 http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ui/#cursor, e. g. grab, grabbing, zoom-in and zoom-out to make websites more user friendly.

                                      Other browsers support the new properties since a long time https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/cursor#Browser_compatibility.

                                      The symbols for the cursor properties can be found on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/cursor.

                                      • Add Print page to PDF option in Internet Explorer and Spartan... like you can on chrome and firefox.

                                        Add an option to print to PDF. It's useful for situations where we're not connected to a printer but need to print an online receipt for example.
                                        Printing to XPS file is not good and the formatting is not saved properly.

                                        • outline-offset

                                          Add support for the outline-offset property, supported in all other browsers.
