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. Please be careful with making Edge Chromium-based

    I've recently read articles about the engine of Edge is being replaced by Chromium.

    I don't think this is a good idea. Microsoft Edge manages to do what no browser can do. It plays online HTML5 videos with the speed and low-resource need comparable to a native video player (like VLC or Media Player Classic).

    This is YouTube playback in Chrome and Edge compared, on the same hardware.

    Chrome and Chromium are famous about having a very catastrophic, bloated multimedia backend, especially when it comes to video playback. GPU acceleration is hardly compatible with any video hardware. Also it…

      • Remove browser agent string

        Remove the browser agent string since it leads to developers doing dumb browser sniffing instead of using doing things like checking if the browser supports something by trying it out.

        Removing it would show also that you are pro standards when it comes to web development since developers would have to rely more on them instead of browser specific bugs.

        • lazyLoad

          Currently, LazyLoad ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/dn369270(v=vs.94) ) is implemented in IE and Edge, see support: https://caniuse.com/#feat=lazyload

          However there is interest in standardization to enable developers lazy-loading images/iframes and other embedded content (and the proposed lazyLoad's attribute values differ from that of current Edge/IE implementation):

                • use Surface Book dGPU for WebGL and WebVR

                  On a Surface Book 1 and Surface Book 2, both running Edge 16 with latest patches, FishGL gets <20fps. Looking at Task Manager, the Edge process is not using the NVidia discrete GPU *at all*. WebVR on the Surface Book 2 was similarly poor in performance. Please use the dGPU when WebGL or WebVR are in-use on a tab. If that means the tab has to be suspended or reloaded when detaching, that's fine by me.

                  • Si al realizar una búsqueda siguen apareciendo tantísimos anuncios patrocinados antes de los resultados relevantes, nadie usará edge nunca

                    Si al realizar cualquier búsqueda en el explorador siguen apareciendo tantísimos anuncios patrocinados antes de los resultados relevantes y al final de cada página (sean debidos a Bing o a Edge o a Microsoft...), nadie usará Edge nunca.
                    Debieran colocar los anuncios patrocinados aparte de la sección de resultados de búsqueda y, a poder ser, tratando de no instar a la gente a clicar en ellos mediante el engaño.

                      Ads on websites have become literally unbearable. They often pop up and cover the content. Please do something about this.

                        • Support the Device Memory API

                          It’s still in development, but the Device Memory API (https://github.com/w3c/device-memory) would be a relatively easy implementation that could enable "lite" versions of page assets.

                            I want to hide the useless buttons for making a web not, hub? and the share button. I will never use these and its an eye sore. I like Edge more than Chrome and I won't switch back to Chrome if these ridiculous buttons were gone.

                                • Dynamic CSS transform animations janky on mousemove event

                                  Currently, Edge will prioritize user events for responsiveness/performance. https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2017/06/01/input-responsiveness-event-loop-microsoft-edge/#BmaPczGdg4dDGHDA.97

                                  It would appear that this causing issues when trying to update layout/rendering on a mousemove/pointermove event.

                                  The result is janky animations. Check out the plunk in Edge and Chrome.

                                  https://plnkr.co/edit/eCDkPjvEKWTpMirkXgV8?p=preview

                                  Chrome is very smooth, whereas Edge/IE11/FireFox stutter on the mousemove event.

                                  • Improve "Laginess feel" when using Edge

                                    When using edge, the overal feel is very laggy, making me switch back to chrome. When I move tabs, scroll, navigate between pages, the experience should feel smooth and not "snappy" as it is now.

                                    • support for websockets compression using permessage-deflate

                                      Chrome and Firefox support the standards based websockets compression extension permessage-deflate during protocol upgrade negotiation (see https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-hybi-permessage-compression-17).

                                      Applications that use websockets with a reasonable payload across a LAN (eg. most JSON payloads) and especially across the internet are noticeable slower in Edge.

                                      As more modern web apps (SPAs especially) implement websockets, Edge is at a disadvantage compared to competitive Windows browsers.

                                      Please consider for a future update of Edge.

                                      • Assigned Key for making screen opaque and visible

                                        Assigned key or user can make any assigned key out of keyboard keys, pressing which makes system screen opaque, and again pressing which makes system screen visible with icons.
