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:

      • 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

          • 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.

            • [HTML] Form Validation and Custom Pattern Validation

              These basic form validation types is still not supported on IE, even on Edge, whereas they are supported by competing browsers like Firefox and Chrome.

              <input type='text' pattern='[input your validation here]' />

              OR

              <input type='text' required />

              That will be very useful as we don't need to use server-side coding and even JS coding.

              • add support for the 'form' attribute

                http://www.impressivewebs.com/html5-form-attribute/
                would be nice to use that feature, IE seems to be the only browser without support for it :)

                • Support propery 'selectionDirection' for input and textarea

                  http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec-preview/textFieldSelection.html

                  I used to use the el.createTextSelection method to determine the selection direction in IE11. However, inputs and textareas no longer expose this method, while still the el.selectionDirection = undefined.
                  We don't have any way to determine selectionDirection now.

                      The time and datetime-local controls shipped in EdgeHTML 13 as part of the Microsoft Edge version included in Windows 10 build 10586 (November 2015). This adds to the existing support for date, month, and week controls already supported in EdgeHTML 12 as part of Windows 10 build 10240 (July 2015).

                    • <input type="color">

                      Add support for the HTML5 color input type.
