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.

      • 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.

            • 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.

              • Support web crypto api

                Add support web crypto API then work with W3C to improve the web crypto API with support for hard certs (e.g. Us gov PIV and CAC cards).

                We need to be able to digitally sign and encrypt XML, JSON, and IMF/MIME based email and attachments.

                Basically we want to get rid the activeX s/mime plugin and the proprietary DBsign plugin from Gradkell systems that U.S. government uses.

                        • Implement the Web Audio API

                          For game development, the Web Audio API is extremely useful: it allows game developers to apply effects to audio that would be otherwise impossible, as well as generate and analyze audio entirely on the client.

                                  ServiceWorkers (formerly Navigation Controllers) are a new system that provides event-driven scripts that run independent of web pages. They are similar to SharedWorkers except that their lifetime is different and they have access to domain-wide events such as network fetches.

                                    • Unprefix and update msMatchesSelector() to matches()

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

                                      • ES6 default function parameters
