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".

        • Please reconsider how Edge and IE react to an OK: 204 response. IMHO this is not according to spec.

          After receiving a http 204: OK, no content. Edge still is waiting for something to arrive although the spec states that no content is to be expectedd

            • Bring `gap` property to flexbox

              As outlined in the linked issue, having the ability to use grid-gap on flexbox (which is soon to be renamed just "gap" by the CSS Working Group because "grid-gap" doesn't make sense when used on flexbox) solves a major pain point that developers are facing.

              See the issue for more details:

              • Blocked URL List

                Will be fine, if Intune and other MDM have an option to put some websites as blocked to visit for users. Same as Smart Screen does for risky pages.

                • "Element is obscured" - Well, by *what*?

                  If the Edge WebDriver thinks an element is covering another one, it reports "Element is obscured."

                  We need more information!

                  Other WebDriver implementations say something like "Cannot click on <a id='whatever' [etc.]> because <div id='annoyingThing' [etc.]> is in the way."

                  This helps a lot when diagnosing these issues. (Especially when the Edge WebDriver reports something as obscured that no other WebDriver thinks is obscured.)

                    • Add "Always Allow" to Adobe Flash popup

                      Now in Edge (Windows 10 1809), enabling Flash for a website doesn't persist after closing the page as it did before the update. The option "Allow Once" is the only option available -- "Always Allow" is not shown -- so every time you open a site you must re-allow Flash

                        • Previous domain button

                          No browser to my knowledge support back/forward button for domains. I'm suggesting this be added to Edge. The idea is that after being on some site for a while, visiting many pages on that site, that I want to now go back to the previous site not simply the previous page.

                          This is low hanging fruit and something I've wondered about for many years.

                              • FLASH/Flex workloads run slower on Edge than competing browsers

                                FLASH/Flex workloads run noticeably slower on the Edge browser than they do on competing browsers. Edge browser performance should be improved to handle FLASH/Flex workloads at speeds comparable to other browsers.

                                  • Please open-source Edge.

                                    I would really like Edge to succeed and stay competitive in the browser market. However, at the rate of features being added and bugs being fixed, it doesn't seem like that's going to happen.

                                    Please consider open-sourcing Edge to allow the community to help bring it up to speed faster.

                                    (As a side note, it seems like the Android version of Edge has better feature support than the desktop version, especially for WebRTC. I don't know what that's about.)

                                        • Implement a stable algorithm for Array.sort

                                          Change your implementation of Array.sort to be stable.

                                          Edge is now the only browser vendor that does implement a stable sort. Chrome recently switched their sort to be stable. (https://stackoverflow.com/a/52151900)

                                          Use case: A stable sort is really important for browsers because so much of what they're sorting is for UI display purposes. Users don't like it when sorting a grid by a certain column and "equal" rows randomly resort if the grid decides to resort them.
