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.

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

  1. 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

    • "Allow zooming on all web content" option in Windows 10 Mobile

      Windows Phone 8.1 had an option to "Allow zooming on all web content" under Settings > Ease of use. This allowed users to zoom/pinch-zoom in IE even on sites that explicitly specified a viewport with fixed min/max zoom sizes or user-scalable=no.

      This option seems to have disappeared in Windows 10 Mobile.

      Old Android/Browser, Android/Chrome, Android/Firefox, and most recently Android/Opera (just added in latest 4.3) all now have a "Force enable zoom" option in the browser settings. The odd one out of the major platforms is iOS/Safari (see https://openradar.appspot.com/radar?id=6058762490085376).

      • Support Web Worker creation via blob URLs

        Currently in Firefox and Chrome you can create a new Worker() using JavaScript defined as a Blob URL. In IE and Edge, you cannot.

        This Blob trick is very convenient, because it allows JavaScript libraries to seamlessly expose WebWorker functionality, without having to require users to build two separate scripts.

        Currently there are workarounds, but they're hacky and based on the unsafe eval(): https://github.com/padolsey/operative#no-worker-via-blob-support

        • 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!

            • Never allow malicious tabs/pages to create modal dialogs that cannot be dismissed

              Edge should prevent a page from repeatedly popping up modal dialogs that block action on the current or other tabs. In IE 11, it is possible for a page to pop up a modal OS dialog window, and upon attempting to close that window, simply re-open it. I experienced this today with a rogue fake virus warning page, and had to kill the entire IE process to get rid of the dialog. Simply unacceptable from a security standpoint.

                          • Improve Promise implementation performance

                            Edge's Promises are a lot slower than the implementations in other browsers. This causes severe problems in Promise heavy APIs.

                            Here is a fiddle that demonstrates the issue: https://jsfiddle.net/jdanyow/vj6o119n/

                            In Chrome this executes in 1m - 4ms.

                            In Edge it takes around 3500ms

                                    • Array.prototype.includes

                                      Array.prototype.includes for simpler and more readable checking for whether a value is contained in an Array object

                                      • Support pseudo elements for <option>

                                        Please add support for pseudo elements :before and :after for <option> tag in <select>. It works pretty well in all other browsers.
                                        Here is an example for it:
