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.

  1. lazyLoad

    Currently, LazyLoad ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/dn369270(v=vs.94) ) is implemented in IE and Edge, see support: https://caniuse.com/#feat=lazyload

    However there is interest in standardization to enable developers lazy-loading images/iframes and other embedded content (and the proposed lazyLoad's attribute values differ from that of current Edge/IE implementation):

    • Cursor on a new tab

      Cursor on a new tab should be automatically on the address bar, so once the new tab is opened, no need to click on the address bar to enter URL. Rather the user can directly start writing on the URL after opening the tab.

      • 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.)

        • Group Policy to disable PDF reader

          Currently Edge takes over the default PDF reader even after Acrobat or another reader is chosen. Please add a GPO to totally disable the PDF reader in Edge.

          • Canvas 2D Font kerning support

            Actually renderingContext2D fillText and strokeText do not support embedded font kerning information in fonts.
            This makes microsoft based text on canvas looks different from all other browsers.

            Would be nice to support it

            • object-fit and object-position for all media elements

              Object-fit and object-position is defined for all visual media, not only for images, but also for video or canvas elements.

                • set aside sigle tab

                  Some time you don't want to set aside all tabs, but only one. To do it now, you have to detach this tab, and on new window press "set these tabs aside" button. It would be great to have "Set aside" button in context menu of an individual tab.

                  • pdf

                    stop hijacking PDFs with your terrible Edge app. I don't use Edge as my browser, but when I select open with Adobe, and set the default app to Adobe, Edge overrides it every time. Terrible. Adobe reader is great and Edge is very weak. please please stop it. it is the biggest flaw with Windows 10 (even worse than the games and bloatware)

                    • Mac version of Edge

                      Produce a Mac version of Edge so developers on Mac can see how their work effects Edge users. This would also improve the user experience for people running Edge on Windows.

                      • ShadowDOM

                        Implement ShadowDOM. I think it is already under implementation, but I didn't see it had any stars. Does it fall under the Custom Element category?

                              • 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:

                                      • "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.)

                                        • Transfer PC to Phone Browsing Tabs

                                          There is a feature for transferring phone tabs to PC browser, but the reason I downloaded the app, was to transfer PC tabs to my phone.
