How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Cookie inspection and editing

This feature would allow the inspection and modification of all cookies relevant to the current page via a tabular view in F12.

Proposed Design
- New item in file picker "Cookies"
- Once opened all cookies relevant to the page (based on top URL) will be displayed in a grid with columns for; name, value, domain, path, expires time, HTTP (only), Secure (only)
- Grid is fully editable
- Options to clear all cookies and session cookies

In Edge cookies are now show in the file picker of the F12 debugger. To see cookies just open F12, go to the debugger and open the file picker (ctrl+o or folder icon) and you will see a folder node for cookies under which each will be a number of nodes for each page. Clicking on the node will open up a grid view of all the cookies relevant to that page the grid is editable so cookies can be updated and deleted.

    @Anonymous What are you talking about? This is already “a method to check, view, edit and delete all cookies, local storage, IndexedDB” (note: not “indexedBD”). Well, not editing IndexedDB, but Chrome does not allow editing IndexedDB either. You can clear IndexedDB if you only care about spying.

    You can call this 'Complete' but you did not provide what your uses wanted. We want a method to check, view, edit and delete all cookies, local storage, indexedBD and any other trick nasty web pages use to spy on people.

    @pmbAustin, you can clear cookies/cache currently via the icons that show at the top when you're on the network tab (which is kind of weird, but it works)

    In addition to cookies, it would be fantastic to have a tab like Chrome's Resources to be able to view/manipulate Local Storage, IndexedDB, etc!

    Need fast/easy way to clear all cookies (and cache) just for a specific site or specific URL.
