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".

  1. IE drop down menu of the 20 internet sites I visit every day

    Why was this removed ? I still use IE purely because I hate having to type in URL'S in Edge. IE crashes all the time and it is terrible, but I still use it instead of edge

    Surely the replacement should be better than the original?

      • dev.modern.ie/tools/vms Win10 Stable VM only licensed for 2 days

        The Windows 10 Stable VM (15.15063) is only good for two days before it expires, after which time it constantly shuts down with no notice. Can you update it to so that it has the full 90 days?

        • dev.modern.ie/tools/vms Win10 Preview VM can't install Windows Features

          The Windows 10 Preview VM (16.16215) has some issues linking to installation media–it doesn’t seem to be able to find any way (including Windows Update) to install things like optional components. We have a script we run on the Windows 10 Stable VM to install some optional components and run functional tests using Edge, and it works great, but the preview VM can’t install things like .NET Framework 3.5 under Windows Features. I tried several tricks including playing with known group policy settings that affect this, but the VM doesn't seem to acknowledge any source as the correct version of…

          • 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.

            • ad-blockers, site-blockers and Google Search

              Until Edge has support for plugins like adblock plus and Youtube Channel Blocker, its useless. The internet is a messy place. Using Edge without these, you get flooded with ads and can't actually see the content. Ads can contain phishing software and keystealers (BitDefender reports) and its not advisable to surf without these tools.

                • Support Cortana inside Microsoft Edge extension such as "Turn Off the Lights for Microsoft Edge"

                  Support Cortana inside Microsoft Edge extension such as "Turn Off the Lights for Microsoft Edge"

                  Microsoft Edge extension only need HTML5 (JavaScript, CSS, HTML). Make the Cortana API available for the Microsoft Edge extension. Use the example code of the “Hosted Web App” => in the Microsoft Edge extension.

                  • 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.

                    • My Microsoft Edge does not open so I cannot get Internet Explorer. When I try to open it, I get this message; "This app can't open"

                      My Microsoft does not ope. I get this message: This app ca't open. Microsoft Edge can't be opened using the built-in Administrator account. Sign in with a different account and try again"
                      Where do I go to do the signing in? Nothing seems to work. Do I have to get rid of this Microsoft Edge?

                      • Support the full set of apis for DocumentFragment

                        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.

                          • Ctrl-F to finds in the text field

                            What is the best way to put in a feature request to the IE/Edge team? Chrome has a great feature in that if you do a "Ctrl-F" to search, and you start to type a term, Chrome will find instances of that search term in the text fields of a form. Firefox does this as well. Unfortunately, both IE & Edge do not provide this feature. IE/Edge will only search in the text that is on a page, not text that is in a value attribute of a text field.

                            It is painful to explain to someone that is looking…

                                    Suggestion: Element.scrollParent
                                    Returns the closest element which controls the position of current element with a scroll.

                                    This feature very useful in many cases, easy for browsers to implement and hard for plugins such as jQueryUI to get it right.

                                    Thanks

                                      • Support VP9 video codec when not hardware-accelerated

                                        Edge supports the WebM VP9 encoding in MSE but only when accelerated, or if the end-user modifies about:flags. This means that sites using WebM VP9 but not H.264 cannot rely on playback in Edge, as most computers do not yet have hardware VP9.

                                        For sites like Wikipedia that avoid H.264 due to licensing policy, this leads to less efficient workarounds or lack of media usage. We would love to deploy Edge-compatible VP9 if it were usable. An opt-in API for JS would be acceptable.
