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.

  3. Allow setCookie() on local file system

    IE has always allowed the JS setCookie() to set a cookie in a web based HTML technical manual on the local file system. Chrome and beta Chromium Edge does not allow this, although Firefox does. I develop an interactive electronic technical manual (IETM) for the DOD that needs a cookie set to "remember' the configuration of the IETM set through a Form selection passed through the URL to enter the main page. It does not work in this beta Chromium Edge. It has always worked in IE back to Quirks and through IE11 and current EDGE with Win10. please restore…

  5. The new Edge Dev is not saving the edited fields in fillable PDF-forms

    The organisation I work for has made the transition to the cloud. Employees in healthcare teams work with Office 365 E1 license and use SharePoint teamsites for their documents. The intranet is also made with SharePoint.

    In the current version of edge, employees are able to fill in fillable PDF's. This is an important feature, because the organisation is working online as much as possible.

    The new Edge dev is not saving the edited fields in fillable PDF's. Please make this functionality available! Microsoft want organisations to move to the cloud, I think this PDF functionality should be facilitated.

    Fillable…

  8. Browser in a vm or chroot jail

    run the browser in a virtual macine or (in linux terms) a chroot jail.

    Do not allow the browser to see the underlying machine/operating system.

    if the browser needs acces to the underlying machine it should be in read only mode.

  9. Allow default fit to width in reading pdf option

    Having to resize the pdf on every page by ctrl-shift-A is damping my enthusiasm for edge. I am using a laptop with touchpad but want to read pdfs with the arrow keys. While scrolling with the down or left arrow, the size of the page will return to the default on every page. A default fit to width option is the best solution.

  11. Fully implement the FormData API

    Currently the FormData API is only partially implemented in Edge. Most of the more useful methods are missing including: has(), get(), set(), delete(), entries(), and many others.

    FormData is already fully implemented on the other major browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) - see: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/catalog/?q=formdata

  12. Firefox instead of Chromium

    Use the Firefox engine instead of the Chromium engine for use in Edge. Firefox is more secure, more private, and uses less resources.

  13. SVG Icons

    The extensions design guidance lists 20 possible icon sizes (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/extensions/guides/design). When rendering a simple icon I can easily have 5x growth in payload focused on images than the actual code itself. It would be better to ship an SVG and work with downstream systems to consume that as a more efficient mechanism.

  14. 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.

  16. FIX YOUR GD EDGE WEBDRIVER (Incorrect XPath behavior for partial @class matches)

    Were the below two issues ever fixed and if so, where they fixed in the Edge Driver which corresponds to the Edge Browser version 15063? If not, which version were these fixes applied to? Critical.

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/8516233/

    Side Note: Spent too much time just trying how to submit an issue because every time I tried to 'Open an issue' in the developer.microsoft.com site, I received a message that Azure accounts were not supported at this time it would then not give me a chance to try to use another account (only allow me to create new account).

  18. Webdriver default download capability

    With the chrome and firefox webdrivers we're able to turn off the download promp and specify a download location. I don't see this availabe in the capabilities for the edge webdriver. This should be available to allow us run automation tests involving file downloads without some mouse click hacks.

    E.g.
    ```
    String downloadFilepath = "/path/to/download";
    HashMap<String, Object> chromePrefs = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    chromePrefs.put("profile.default_content_settings.popups", 0);
    chromePrefs.put("download.default_directory", downloadFilepath);
    ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();
    options.setExperimentalOption("prefs", chromePrefs);
    ```
