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".

  1. Internet Explorer / Edge Changelog

    Provide high-level and detailed Internet Explorer 7 Edge Version change log: with the new Windows servicing model my customers are moving away from full-stack management and related full test cycles - in order to assess the potential impact of the changes it would be beneficial to get access to the above mentioned information

    • 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

      • UPDATE the WebDriver module - it is missing features and hasn't been updated since July 2015.

        Please UPDATE your WebDriver module for Edge and support XPATH and other missing identifier functions, etc., so we can run the same scripts to test Edge in the same way we test other browsers. You say you are going to support it, but if you don't update it, that's not supporting it.

        • GPO for legacy sites and start IE

          Enterprise customers will have to support legacy IE applications for the foreseeable future. We have applications that uses components from 10 years ago and where the supplier does not exist anymore.
          From the usability point of view we want to use Edge as default browser. I also think that splitting IE and Edge is the only way forward. However we need a solution to open certain sites in a specific browser. A GPO with an entry like trusted sites that we can manage would be the preferred solution for us. If we have Edge as default browser it could launch…

          • 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.

              • Critical Bug: IE11 freezes the entier bug on rightclicking the popup

                Please improve IE by fixing the critical bugs.

                This bug was first introduced in 11.0.9600.17031. Earlier minor versions of IE11 and major versions IE10, 9, do not exhibit this bug. I reported it here: https://connect.microsoft.com/IE/feedback/details/853492/breaking-issue-ie-11-11-0-9600-17031-freezes-on-right-clicking-the-page-for-context-menu. It is still reproducible.

                * Go to http://www.nahdiamal.com/en.
                * Click on health assessment tools on top right corner. The overlay will appear.
                * Right click the page.

                It will not only freeze the current frame, but the entire window.

                Tested on IE11 on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 (latest preview).

                    • VM for Linux / Mac

                      I work in Linux & sometimes OSX. It would be great if IE worked natively on those platforms as it is a pain to boot up a specific Windows machine just for testing.
                      While I guess you won't be releasing for Ubuntu any time soon, it would be really helpful to have better Virtual Machines to aide with testing.

                        Implement web page to configure advanced IE options... like about:config.
                        - You can be original name it about:settings
                        - I would like to have there settings to disable HTLM5, particular video codec, set user agent, other setting hidden just in registry.

                        • Developer Release Channel should be updated more often automatically

                          The IE Developer release channel should be updated automatically more often e.g. once a day or once a week. Chrome Canary and Mozilla Aurora is everyday. It should be updated in Windows Update and outside of Windows Update like you do with Windows Defender security definitions.

                            • more channels for virtual images downloads

                              It's a pain to download 4 rar files and unpack them. There's no reason not to provide the image as it is as one big download over HTTP. And then please also add torrents and and ATOM (not ODATA!) feed so that people can automatically download new images.
