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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Support background persistent when edge is not opend, and support chrome.notification API

      Support background persistent when edge is not opend, and support chrome.notification API.

      Now, when MS Edge is closed, background isn't also run.
      Please, support background persistent.

      And support chrome.notification API, too.

      Google Chrome already support those.

      Chrome supports notification API when browser is not opened.

        • dashlane support

          Dashlane claims edge does not support a certain feature to enable them to write a plugin:
          https://csdashlane.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202699161-Request-Dashlane-on-a-Platform-or-Browser

          Please do whatever is needed to get dashlane working on edge, it's really in excusable to not have such a popular app supported. I would then use edge immediately, thank you

            • Allow Edge to print background colors

              Add an option to Edge similar to the "Print Background Colors and Images" option in IE 11. The use of background colors can enhance layouts and make data more readable, such as on reports or calendars. This would still give the user the option to not allow background colors to print while giving the developer maximum flexibility.

                    • 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.

                            Browser extensions such as Stylus/Stylish use templates which call .firstElementChild but we can't port these to Edge because the full DocumentFragment api isn't supported right now.

                              • Implement caret-color support

                                "caret-color" has just been implemented on Chromium and Firefox. It'd be really nice if Edge can support it too.

                                The spec is CR: https://www.w3.org/TR/css-ui-3/#caret-color

                                And there are already 21 tests on the W3C csswg-test repo: http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css-ui-3/section/6.2.1/

                                • Support "wheel" events for 2-finger scrolling on Precision Touch Pads (like every other browser does, and every other trackpad does)

                                  Microsoft Edge is the only browser that doesn't support 2-finger scrolling properly. Sure, it scrolls the web page, but it doesn't fire wheel events. It instead just lets the OS handle it. This breaks critical functionality not only on the web, but also in many Windows 10 apps that are built using js/html (which is executed by the Edge engine). The biggest example is Flipboard, which doesn't let you "flip" through pages using the scroll gesture on the precision trackpad that Microsoft's own Hardware ships with (every Surface Pro / Book for the past 3+ years).

                                  To verify the problem,…

                                    Allow extensions to be enabled in InPrivate sessions. Use case is to have eg. Ublock running for InPrivate browsing sessions too.

                                    • Put the console.log source at the same line on the topright corner

                                      When you do a console.log("hello"), then the text "hello" will be outputted to the console, and then there will also be outputted a "source-link" below that line which can take you to the sourcecode and line of where that console.log was executed.

                                      So if you do 5 console.log, then there will be 10 lines because of the source-link

                                      Can you put the source-link to the right or top-right corner on every log, because that would save many lines and be more readable.

                                      That is was Chrome does.

                                      • Next Billion Users.

                                        The average website is at least 2MB in size. This does not bode well for the next billion users. Users who are coming online for the very first time. Users who come online with sub optimal 2G connections. They miss out on all the benefits of the internet.

                                        Javascript libraries and frameworks add to the bloat. Instead of having each page download and use the Js files. Can a js framework be built into the browser itself. We can consider the browser to be a platform. Also, considering that a JS engine isn't enough. A step further will be highly…
