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. Add VTTCue and WebVTT support

    WebVTT: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WebVTT_API
    VTTCue: https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/#the-vttcue-interface
    Supported by all other browser vendors in Chrome, FF, Safari.
    Also implement ::CUE pseudo-element to enable support in CVAA.
    Currently all player developers need to create their own subtitles/captions implementations due to browser having fragmented support in all of the above which makes supporting accessibility very hard and cumbersome.
    Having you support this will ensure better interoperability.
    Please consider migrating the solution to IE11 as well as you still have it on platforms which are widely supported and EOL is not near as it seems.

      • Support KeyboardEvent.isComposing property

        https://w3c.github.io/uievents/#dom-keyboardevent-iscomposing

        This API is already supported on other desktop browsers. Supporting it will really makes IME handling easier.

        • 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.

          • Give extensions access to Windows.Services.Store for in-app purchasing

            It would be useful to give Edge extensions access to Windows.Services.Store so that they can easily integrate in-app purchasing and trial-restricted features via the Microsoft Store.

              • Implement "stroke-align:outset" - single and multiple outside strokes for text

                We need outside strokes for text, because the current centered strokes are not pretty - the intrude the font fill.

                An image illustrating how centered strokes aren't pretty / don't do what typically is intended (leaving the fill of the font unaffected):
                https://twitter.com/TobiReif/status/942805851017969664

                I hope you will implement stroke-align:outset.

                • 3DES only available for local domains/router segments/local networks if needed. NOT FOR THE INTERNET.

                  SCHANNEL : The 3DES Cipher should be used - if needed at all - ONLY selectively and definitely kept blocked - disabled - for Internet Connections ranging outside of a local Network boundary (or outside of proxied Segments or NAT Domains or also when not being used through either encrypted VPN Tunnels).
                  I recommend this because it is weak. (64bit ciphers are generally considered weak now because of their limitation).

                    • Support bidi isolation for elements with dir attributes, and for bdi

                      This is a specific request for Edge to support bidi isolation per the HTML specification where the dir attribute and the bdi element are used. The wording in the request for dir=auto [1] is equally valid here.

                      Support for isolation is really a fundamental requirement for languages using Arabic and Hebrew and other scripts such as Thaana, Syriac, N'Ko, etc. Note also that the Arabic script is the second most widely used script around the world after the Latin script, so this affects a lot of people. And the lack of isolation is not an edge-case problem (see worked examples…

                            Feature policy is a mechanism for developers to enable and disable web platform features on their sites, in their pages and in third-party content which they have framed.

                            It allows control of existing features such as XMLHttpRequest and geolocation, as well as new features such as WebVR

                            • 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.

                              • Add console.hex() to be able to log binary data to the console

                                With binary data becoming more and more common in the browser, thanks to ArrayBuffers and TypedArrays and all the specifications that use them, we need to be able to properly log these data types to the console.

                                On the surface this is possible with console.log(), but is that is severely lacking when it comes to binary data. So I would like to propose the ability to log binary data in the classic hex dump format. Having a console.hex() command in the browser would certainly my my life of lot easier and probably a lot of others that work with binary…

                                    • "(input[type=file] element).files = dataTransfer.files" fails in Edge

                                      We fail to pass "dataTransfer.files" of DragEvent to "files" property of the input[type="file"] element in Edge. For example:

                                      HTML:
                                      <input id="fileItem" type="file">

                                      Javascript:
                                      var myfiles = dataTransfer.files;
                                      document.getElementById('fileItem').files = myfiles; //This fails in Edge, but no errors are shown in console

                                      Steps to Reproduce a Bug:
                                      https://jsfiddle.net/vth82jst/2/

                                      1. Drag & drop your file to input[type="file"] area
                                      2. Check the "drop file name" and "input value"
                                      3. Even if we drop a file, the "input value" does not change in Edge (It remains "ファイルは選択されていません" unchanged).

                                      I am troubled when I want to select files by drag & drop in Edge.

                                      • EXPAND or COLLAPSE ALL when viewing "Elements"

                                        It would be helpful to allow for Expansion and/or Collapsing of all Elements in the editor script. Various reasons to implement would assist in preserving data as viewed. Example: law enforcement initiatives require memorialization of pages and/or profiles and posts but when a page has been deleted or relocated, the source code in its entirety easily saved as a text file would afford a faster way to recreating than the lengthy process of requesting whether the web host maintained the data.
