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.

    • 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.

        • 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 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.

                  • Function.length returns required parameter counts for DOM APIs

                    DOM functions currently return 0 when queried for length. While browsers implement the number of required parameters differently due to differences in their optional parameters and values, it would help determine differences between browsers if we could compare functions required parameter counts across browsers.

                      • 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).

                              • 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).

                                          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).

                                          We really appreciate the feedback on F12 and your passion for a better F12. We’d like the user voice suggestions to be actionable items that developers can vote and provide feedback and we can implement :). This idea is a bit to vague for us to act on.

                                            Thanks for the feedback. We sure appreciate the challenges of the current vertical navigation menu and we’ve started work to change it to a more traditional horizontal tab model. There’s some mockups of the new design over at: http://i.imgur.com/rUc561N.png. You can provide feedback on them here on User Voice or on twitter IEDevTools and iedevtoolsmicrosoft.com
