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.

  3. Prevent Update of older version, first fix the errors in IE11 or newer.

    IE11 have so much errors if you use zoom level on high resolution displays for example.
    Please fix errors first bevor build new Version or features.

    Since forever they just look pretty and don't actually change anything.

  7. Allow users to add HSTS entries

    I know IE is going to support HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS). I suggest IE to allow users to add domains to its HSTS sets, like chrome://net-internals/#hsts in Chrome.

    Given that HTTPS Everywhere is not (officially) available on IE, this feature would be a good substitute.

  10. Web site based blocking of cookies, pop-ups, images and more

    Look at Opera. You have general cookies, pop-ups, images, etc settings. But you can also right-click any webpage and customize settings for it alone. For some web sites, I don't want any pop-up, even those that happen when I click on something (or especially those). In some pages I may not want any images or any images above certain resolution, as they are simply ads. And in some web sites, I don't want any flash content as I know it is only used for ads (like in forums, where you don't have any useful content in flash.

    Eliminating unwanted elements…

  11. Copy/Paste all form fields' content

    I often have pages with forms from which I need to copy all the fields (be it even the text ones only) and paste into the same form for another entry. More specifically, I do it mostly with two YouTube videos where I copy title, description, keywords and even a message for subscribers (and GPS location). In some cases, it's because the content for both movies is similar enough, to use as a template, and in some because I have two movies for virtually the same thing (short and real-time).

    But it would also be great for entering date into…

  13. Crossdomain cookies: Allow CORS in IE to send and receive cookies

    Current securicy policy restrict using cross-site cookies, like for multidomain shops or somehting. If I do ajax-request from one domain to another that request send without cookies information at all. It's like sandboxing, even if I write correct P3P-header.
    Now I use workaround, like https://github.com/jpillora/xdomain but i need to include it in ie-only way. I want more simple and clean solution. Other browser-engines (webkit, firefox, presto) allow me to send and receive cross-domain cookies

  14. Record icon not play icon

    May seem minor, but please change the start recording icon in Network, UI, Profiler etc to a record icon rather than a play icon.

    (Play/pause is obv correct for the debugger tab as its a different process going on)

  15. Better synchronization and autocomplete

    Import of browser history from the other browsers. Better synchronization through all devices. Bing and better autocomplete for non-eng countries! (For example chrome on my Nexus 7 suggests me much more relevant web pages).

  16. LINK rel=subresource

    Resource prefetching for early downloading of resources intended to be used on the current page.

    This would allow URLs to resources the page will require to be specified in response headers so they can be requested as soon as possible.

  18. Make behaviour of host objects more consistent

    We need wrappers around host objects like window, location. etc in IE so that they behave similar to other JavaScript objects. Though this behaviour is not defined by the specification, doing so will be make the behaviour of host objects similar to other JavaScript objects and consistent across browsers as well

    This will especially avoid problems like these - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25008099/function-prototype-bind-does-not-work-in-ie-even-in-versions-where-it-is-suppose

  20. Allow using spell checker in MSHTML on Windows 7

    MSHTML allows using spell checker in third-party apps on Windows 8, Windows 8.1. and Windows 10. Why not Windows 7? There are still millions of users running Windows 7 and there is no technical reason why it is disabled (also, other browsers allow it on Win7).
