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.

    • Ability to "cast to device" from Microsoft Edge Browser

      I hope this idea has already been considered and is in development. But if it isn't, please add to the list. Would love the ability to cast a video to device from within the Edge browser. This ability has been around with other operating systems for years.

      • Ogg Vorbis and Opus audio formats support [Firefox and Chrome support it]

        Ogg Vorbis and Opus are free and open-source audio codecs with great quality. They are developed by Xiph.Org Foundation and IETF.

        Opus codec provides the best quality (latest listening tests: http://listening-test.coresv.net/results.htm for 96 kbps and http://listening-tests.hydrogenaud.io/igorc/results.html for 64 kbps) and very low latency (http://opus-codec.com/comparison/ ). More information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opus_%28audio_format%29 . Support status: http://caniuse.com/#search=opus .

        Ogg Vorbis also provides good quality. It is an old audio format and you can find many of Ogg Vorbis files in the web. Ogg Vorbis is very popular in the Linux world. More information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorbis and http://vorbis.com/ . Support status: http://caniuse.com/#search=ogg .

          OGG, Theora and Vorbis are now supported in the Fall Creators Update by installing the Web Media Extension from the Microsoft Store: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9n5tdp8vcmhs

          Long-term, we expect to expand distribution of the Web Media Extension package to all Windows 10 devices so that these formats become a trusted and reliable part of the web platform available to developers.

        • Support audio/wav in the <audio> tag

          I understand that audio/wav PCM is not a suitable format for network delivery, but it is a simple format to work with and it is well suitable for playing around on an internal network.

          We recently used it to perform an encoding blind-test internally (the test sadly Only worked in the other browsers because we choose audio/wav because it is lossless).

          • getUserMedia() API

            Since our company made the move to Windows 8 tablets, our proprietary tablet app is unable to use the camera and microphone for our technicians to use, since IE Metro has outlawed any hardware access, and plugins for that matter.
