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.

        • Flash Player is not working

          Microsoft Edge seems to be unable to recognize that Flash Player is already enabled in the settings after the new update of windows 10.

          • Allow bookmarklets

            Internet Explorer, along with every other desktop browser, used to support bookmarklets. These lightweight, easy-to-develop scripts can run on any page and provide valuable functionality to users.

            Edge no longer supports bookmarklets.

            Surely this is one of the reason that some users refuse to move to Edge, and still use MSIE 11.

              • stop support of 'ime-mode' with recommendation of W3C

                At least, Edge should offer the option which ignores 'ime-mode'.

                CSS Basic User Interface Module Level 3 (CSS3 UI)

                > 6.3.2. Obsolete: the ime-mode property
                > User agents should not support the ime-mode property.

                    • Support the HTML Media Capture API

                      Full support for the HTML Media Capture specification (W3C Candidate Recommendation 2014). This would allow simple access to the native video camera using '<input type="file" name="video" accept="video/*" capture>' on Windows Phone.

                      Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/html-media-capture/
                      (see "example 2" in spec)

                      At the moment, the only way to do this is to create your own camera using the navigator.getUserMedia implementation, which is more complex and can differ per platform (UI and logic). The simpler input capture type already works on iOS, Android, and Blackberry providing a fully-functional native camera with requisite platform-specific look and feel.

                          • landmark navigation

                            I would like to see a feature for navigating to "landmark regions" using the keyboard. Very similar to the way the F6 key works in the Windows Explorer (try it! :)

                            Landmark regions can be defined by the page author by either using ARIA landmark roles (http://w3c.github.io/aria/aria/aria.html#landmark_roles), or HTML5 elements that default to having landmark roles (see summary, below, for a list of these elements).
                            Note that the generic landmark role="region" - and its corresponding html "section" element - must have a label before it is considered a true landmark, whereas nav, aside, etc do not technically require…

                            • Support Screen Capture per W3C Specification

                              The Screen Capture (or screen share) specification [1] allows websites to obtain a MediaStream of the user's screen, given permission from the user.

                              Firefox has implemented the feature per specification (no longer requiring a whitelist [2]), while Chrome only allows the feature when initiated from an extension.

                              [1] Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/screen-capture/

                                    The "SameSite" cookie prevents CSRF attacks by telling the browser not to send the cookie in requests that originate from sites other than the one that created it.
