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.

  1. Support CSS hyphens property

    The `hyphens` CSS property allows the author to request automatic hyphenation, or to manually insert soft hyphens to explicitly indicate hyphenation opportunities, or to turn off hyphenation. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/hyphens

    As of EdgeHTML 16, the ePub viewer inserts automatic hyphens, but with no control (resulting in hyphens where there shouldn't be, like in code). The normal web view uses soft hyphens for manual hyphenation (the default CSS behavior), but does not have automatic hyphenation support. The `hyphens` property is not recognized at all.

    • Suport "appearance: none" for <input>

      Would be nice if Edge supports appearance (or -webkit-appearance) set as 'none' for <input> elements, like radio or checkbox.

      • Support for @counter-style

        Related w3 document:
        https://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/

        The Internationalization WG observes that Edge does not pass the tests found here:

        See https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/counter-styles.en.html (click on the large text in the left-most column to run the tests)

        Several groups have observed the need for counter style support. The Arabic Layout TF finds that it is needed for Persian support. Richard Ishida reports that vertical text lists require it as well. Firefox is observed to provide this support.

        • RTC Data Channels

          Data channels allow a web application to send and receive generic application data peer-to-peer.

          This feature request is specifically about the *data channel* component of the WebRTC specification. This is separate from Object RTC and WebRTC 1.0 feature requests because the Platform Status site breaks out data channels separately.

          • OffscreenCanvas

            From MDN: The OffscreenCanvas interface provides a canvas that can be rendered off screen. It is available in both the window and worker contexts.

            From me: It would be great to prepare images and run WebGL without tying up the UI thread.

            • Downloads API support for extensions

              Missing Downloads API support is not good. I wanted to port my extension but it relies on basic downloads API missing in Edge.

              • Implement CSS `display: flow-root` (modern clearfix)

                `display: flow-root` is a modern way to force a block to be a formatting context that floated elements are contained in (aka clearfix).

                From the spec [1]:

                > The element generates a block container box, and lays out its contents using flow layout. It always establishes a new block formatting context for its contents.

                Tab Atkins and Elika Etemad (fantasai) from CSSWG consider the feature stable enough to be implemented [2].

                • Implement the update media feature from MQ4

                  The update media query from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that responsively update the screen, from those that cannot, or those that can but only slowly.

                  Authors can use that to style things differently on print vs ebook readers, even though both media are paginated. This kind of nuance was not possible to express just with @media print {...}

                  The specification is over here:
                  https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#descdef-media-update

                  • Implement the overflow media features from MQ4

                    The overflow-block and overflow-inline media queries from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that paginate vs media that scroll or media that clip using media features instead of media types.

                    That way, you can do

                    @media (overflow-block: paged) {
                    /* do something smart for pagination */
                    }

                    and that will do the right thing when printing AND in ebook readers that paginate instead of scrolling, instead of

                    @media print {
                    /* do something smart for pagination */
                    }

                    which would work on print but fail in ebook readers.

                    The specification is over here:
                    https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mf-overflow-block

                    • Support Media Queries level 4 syntax improvements

                      CSS Media Quries Level 4 bring in a bunch of syntactic improvements. They make media queries much more readable and maintainable.

                      https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mq-syntax

                      Here's an example:

                      Before:

                      @media (min-width: 20em), not all and (min-height: 40em) {
                      @media not all and (pointer: none) {

                      }
                      }

                      After:

                      @media ((width >= 20em) or (height < 40em)) and (pointer) {

                      }

                      • Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed

                        Often when a page loads, loading indicator disappears very quickly, and I don't have visual feedback that somethings are being processed in background, I just get an empty page, and when I start to think that the link is dead or something else went wrong, page suddenly appears.

                            • WebVR : Add support for Oculus Rift, OpenVR and OSVR

                              WebVR is now supported by the latest version of Edge in the Creator Update and that's amazing. However, it is limited to Mixed Reality Devices and those devices and they are not available. Windows 10 users who already have a VR headset such as a Rift or a Vive, have to use a beta browser to enjoy WebVR.

                              Please considere to update Edge with at least a support for the Oculus Rift and the Vive. And only if you want to be a super hero, add OSVR support too.

                                  • Add support for CSS printing hints

                                    Other browsers support some level of CSS hints for printing to hint to the browser to use landscape over portrait, and what margins to use.

                                    • In debugger, fix inspecting variables in mapped source code

                                      When I'm debugging mapped source files and I hover over variable, I want to see the variable value.

                                      Let's say I have ES2015 or TypeScript souce code, babelified, minimized and browserified. In chrome I can debug the original source code and inspect the variables. I would love to see it in Edge too.

                                      • Transform Google AMP URLs back to original URL when shared

                                        When viewing an AMP page, any sharing action results in the original website's URL being shared instead of the Google AMP URL. This makes sense if sharing from a mobile device with the Google AMP url displayed but the person on the receiving end is viewing it on a desktop.

                                        Safari is doing this:

                                        • img decoding attribute

                                          https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/embedded-content.html#attr-img-decoding

                                          > Decoding of large images can block the main thread for hundreds of milliseconds or more, interrupting fluid animations and user interaction. Currently, there's no way for a web author to specify that they want an image to be decoded asynchronously, so there are scenarios where it is impossible to avoid UI stalls.

                                          Thus the new `decoding` attribute for the `img` element, with possible values:

                                          * `sync`: Indicates a preference to decode this image synchronously for atomic presentation with other content.

                                          * async: Indicates a preference to decode this image asynchronously to avoid delaying presentation of other content.

                                          *…
