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.

  2. Log XmlHttpRequests to the console

    This feature would log every XHR based network request to the console.

    Proposed design:
    - Console message with the URL that is being requested
    - Link to view the request in the network tool
    - Link to the source location that triggered the XHR

  3. Developer Tools -> Detecting leaked memory by pointing out disconnected nodes

    I find the Memory debugging tool good, what I am missing is to be able to see disconnected nodes easily and what is keeping them alive.

    For example, these nodes may appear in the DOM Explorer colored differently in the bottom of the node tree - or in a separate section.

    Then I would like to be able to click such a disconnected node and immediately see the js variable and code that keeps it alive, instead of drilling through stack traces and GC root views.

  4. Debugging capabilities using the remote debugging protocol

    Build upon the remote debugging protocol (https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/debugger-protocol) to allow developers to use existing, familiar, developer tools.

    Then continue to openly build debugging innovations on the web platform based on the protocol, collaborating with other browser vendors to make it moving between browsers an easier experience.

  6. Allow data: / blob: URLs in iframe src

    Currently IE is an only browser I know to block blob:/data: URLs as an iframe src. Since iframes do not provide any other way to set Content-Type, this disallows some interesting client-side scenarios such as iframed SVG preview.

  11. Detect mobile-web-app-capable in metadata and provide app-like experience.

    When <meta name="mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"> is on the page, give the user cues that the site can be saved as an app. When opened as an app, provide minimal or no chrome to the user, and make any other web-app-specific UI/behavior changes.

  12. Errors/messages that are repeated group under a single badge (like Chrome)

    SImilar to Chrome, when there are repeated errors/logs consolidate them on a single line with a badge indicating # of repeats. The issue arises when the same error may appear hundreds of times (ex. testing mouse events) and it's a pain to have to scroll through the duplicates...

  14. Improve support for editing files locally

    I often have problems viewing complex documents locally in IE. They work perfectly when uploaded to a server, but for some reason locally IE doesn't see my css @import rules, or doesn't register certain scripts for inexplicable reasons, or various other issues like that. Websites should render locally exactly as they do server side wherever possible. Obviously I don't expect things like PHP code to work, but anything that can work, should.

  15. Make IE handle favicon like other browsers - any changes are reflected immediately

    I don't what it is about IE but look out if you change the favicon for your site. I think IE caches the original one and getting it to recognize the new is a major pain.

  17. Allow simultaneous, stand-alone installations of different versions of IE (8/9/10/11/etc) on the one desktop

    Because we all know emulation only goes so far, implement and allow stand-alone installations of IE.

    This would allow side by side testing/debugging of functionality across different versions of IE straight on the developer's machine.

  20. Enable iframes to choose a document mode independant of the document mode of the page that is hosting the iframe

    We develop a large browser based financial accounting application. We are currently migrating our application from IE5 quirks mode to edge mode.

    Customers can integrate the UI of our application into other web based applications. Our app is running inside of iframes in many other applications (for example, ERP software). When we now migrate to edge mode, all those integrations will break, because the document mode of our iframe is determined by the other applications that integrate our UI.

    We need the possibility to migrate our application to edge mode without breaking all those other applications that integrate our UI.
