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:

  1. Link my microsoft account to the Edge not to the Windows OS

    I want to use Edge but I can't because I can't link my personal account to my Windows OS because Organization settings. And how I going to use Edge without sync my bookmarks?
    I think we should be able to sync in Edge some how that this cannot happen.
    I understand that the Organization rules need to be keep for security reasons but my bookmarks wont hurt any body I think.

    Thanks.

    • Bind Ctrl+P to open a file/command

      Change the Ctrl+P to show a GoTo/Command terminal. Pretty much what VSCode does.

        • Include TLS security. Most websites require it now, so I have had to stop using Microsoft edge for web browsing.

          Include TLS security in Microsoft Edge. I have had to install Google Chrome to use the Internet as almost all sites now require TLS security to visit or view.

          • Arabic text in alert() should appear in RTL by default

            When using an alert()-statement in which arabic text is included (like alert("דךגלכחדךלגיכלגדיכ\nלחידליגדלכדגכ\nלחידלגיכ");
            ) , the alignment of the message will appear in Left-To-Right (LTR), unless you specify the direction in the html-attribute. Chrome detects automatically, that these characters need RTL-direction and shows them accordingly in RTL directly.

            • Support Screen Capture per W3C Specification

              The Screen Capture (or screen share) specification [1] allows websites to obtain a MediaStream of the user's screen, given permission from the user.

              Firefox has implemented the feature per specification (no longer requiring a whitelist [2]), while Chrome only allows the feature when initiated from an extension.

              [1] Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/screen-capture/

              [2] Firefox re:whitelisting: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Screensharing

              • Show window size when resizing

                This feature would show the current size of the Page (innerHeight and innerWidth) in a small label drawn in F12 as Edge is resized. The dimensions in the label would update as the Edge window is resized.

                  • User agent selection in F12 should be improved

                    The F12 tools should improve how the user-agent override is exposed in two ways.

                    For Custom, the edit control is too tiny. It should be a large, even multi-line control with wrap. The existing control is too small to see any reasonable user-agent.

                    For all other selections, F12 doesn't display the value used. My suggestion is to all use the same multi-line control suggested above but that the control is read-only when any value other than custom is selected. Make sure that it is read-only but not disabled so that users can select and copy the value that will be…

                        Edge currently supports the JSON wire protocol. But it needs to support both that and the latest W3C protocol now that the W3C spec is a Candidate Recommendation.

                        • MS Edge Extension with Native Messaging on Desktop PC - Run UWP App in Background / no UI

                          We have a classic desktop application on Windows which needs to communicate with the web browsers. Therefore we created web browser extensions and use the native messaging technology to pass messages between the JavaScript on a web page and the native desktop application. This way of communication is currently supported in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. Now we want to perform the same task in Microsoft Edge. But unfortunately Microsoft Edge supports native messaging in a different way the other browsers do. In Chrome/Firefox/Opera simply a serialized JSON string can be passed to a native messaging host application via…

                                    • Group Policy for MS Edge to set a homepage but, allow users to change it. Like GPP Registry

                                      Currently, there is a GPO that would allow admin to set a homepage for MS EDGE, this however locks down the users ability to change the homepage.
                                      When you zoom in to the registry where the homepage is set, it has a warning: It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy

                                      Example:

                                      Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected - It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy]
                                      "ProtectedHomepages"=hex:01,00,00,00,06,ba,76,4e,b0,08,3e,cc,e2,88,ce,2f,b3,c4,\
                                      19,e7,ae,dc,31,71,c4,30,2c,81,75,60,e5,cb,63,4d,71,ab,8f,12,97,fe,1b,1f,f9,\
                                      5c,4a,e5,c8,72,33,ce,53,b5,c6,5f,e0,de,97,c7,d9,dc,93,3b,24,4d,f8,db,49,e7,\
                                      38,08,06,8f,f5,5e,34,50,27,c7,bb,4f,6c,49,03,ff,ca,8f,1f,48,f6,57,82,00,69,\
                                      2c,4e,0f,b7,2a,c2,25,9e,ba,6d,1a,e9,66,33,24,30,1d,6c,fc,f9,95,c5,f7,b5,a9,\
                                      f5,b2

                                      So, many control environments may want to set a different URL to be the default homepage but want to allow users to change it later on…

                                      • Write Edge in managed code

                                        I know you've tried to GC the native code, but it's not enough.

                                        There are still UAF bugs. There are still type bugs. It's time to put an end to them once and for all. Write in managed code. We know that Microsoft can create environments that are type safe; it's time to actually use one.

                                        • Websocket - support for custom headers for handshake

                                          please consider adding ability to add custom headers for handshake. In RFC6455 there one interesting point:

                                          The request MAY include any other header fields, for example, cookies [RFC6265] and/or authentication-related header fields such as the |Authorization| header field [RFC2616], which are processed according to documents that define them. I've found an example how to add custom header to handshake: https://blog.heckel.xyz/2014/10/30/http-basic-auth-for-websocket-connections-with-undertow/ but this is for Java and unfortunately isn't possible in HTML5.

                                          When searching over the net I found many places question about this option, for example: sta/websocket-sharp#22 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4361173/http-headers-in-websockets-client-api/4361358#4361358 aspnet/SignalR#888

                                          For example in Python this is possible https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15381414/sending-custom-headers-in-websocket-handshake. Other languages…
