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".

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.

      • Prevent Update of older version, first fix the errors in IE11 or newer.

        IE11 have so much errors if you use zoom level on high resolution displays for example.
        Please fix errors first bevor build new Version or features.

                • Allow users to add HSTS entries

                  I know IE is going to support HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS). I suggest IE to allow users to add domains to its HSTS sets, like chrome://net-internals/#hsts in Chrome.

                  Given that HTTPS Everywhere is not (officially) available on IE, this feature would be a good substitute.

                          Extends the CSS sizing properties with keywords that represent content-based "intrinsic" sizes and context-based "extrinsic" sizes, allowing CSS to more easily describe boxes that fit their content or fit into a particular layout context.

                          • Web site based blocking of cookies, pop-ups, images and more

                            Look at Opera. You have general cookies, pop-ups, images, etc settings. But you can also right-click any webpage and customize settings for it alone. For some web sites, I don't want any pop-up, even those that happen when I click on something (or especially those). In some pages I may not want any images or any images above certain resolution, as they are simply ads. And in some web sites, I don't want any flash content as I know it is only used for ads (like in forums, where you don't have any useful content in flash.

                            • Copy/Paste all form fields' content

                              I often have pages with forms from which I need to copy all the fields (be it even the text ones only) and paste into the same form for another entry. More specifically, I do it mostly with two YouTube videos where I copy title, description, keywords and even a message for subscribers (and GPS location). In some cases, it's because the content for both movies is similar enough, to use as a template, and in some because I have two movies for virtually the same thing (short and real-time).

                              But it would also be great for entering date into…

                                  • Crossdomain cookies: Allow CORS in IE to send and receive cookies

                                    Current securicy policy restrict using cross-site cookies, like for multidomain shops or somehting. If I do ajax-request from one domain to another that request send without cookies information at all. It's like sandboxing, even if I write correct P3P-header.
                                    Now I use workaround, like https://github.com/jpillora/xdomain but i need to include it in ie-only way. I want more simple and clean solution. Other browser-engines (webkit, firefox, presto) allow me to send and receive cross-domain cookies

                                    • Record icon not play icon

                                      May seem minor, but please change the start recording icon in Network, UI, Profiler etc to a record icon rather than a play icon.

                                      (Play/pause is obv correct for the debugger tab as its a different process going on)

                                        • Better synchronization and autocomplete

                                          Import of browser history from the other browsers. Better synchronization through all devices. Bing and better autocomplete for non-eng countries! (For example chrome on my Nexus 7 suggests me much more relevant web pages).
