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.

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.

        • Improve support for editing files locally

          I often have problems viewing complex documents locally in IE. They work perfectly when uploaded to a server, but for some reason locally IE doesn't see my css @import rules, or doesn't register certain scripts for inexplicable reasons, or various other issues like that. Websites should render locally exactly as they do server side wherever possible. Obviously I don't expect things like PHP code to work, but anything that can work, should.

            • Make IE handle favicon like other browsers - any changes are reflected immediately

              I don't what it is about IE but look out if you change the favicon for your site. I think IE caches the original one and getting it to recognize the new is a major pain.

              • Allow simultaneous, stand-alone installations of different versions of IE (8/9/10/11/etc) on the one desktop

                Because we all know emulation only goes so far, implement and allow stand-alone installations of IE.

                This would allow side by side testing/debugging of functionality across different versions of IE straight on the developer's machine.

                      • Line numbers in console

                        This feature would show the source location (line & column) of a message logged via console.*.

                        Proposed design
                        - Same look and feel as other messages that have source information
                        - Applicable to console (info, warn, error, assert, log, dir, dirxml, time/timeEnd)

                        • Enable iframes to choose a document mode independant of the document mode of the page that is hosting the iframe

                          We develop a large browser based financial accounting application. We are currently migrating our application from IE5 quirks mode to edge mode.

                          Customers can integrate the UI of our application into other web based applications. Our app is running inside of iframes in many other applications (for example, ERP software). When we now migrate to edge mode, all those integrations will break, because the document mode of our iframe is determined by the other applications that integrate our UI.

                          We need the possibility to migrate our application to edge mode without breaking all those other applications that integrate our UI.

                            • Support certificate validation using DANE (RFC 6698)

                              DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) complements and sometimes replace the current trust model for certificates. Since it is based on the hierachical DNSSEC system, it doesn't have the flaw of having numerous (and sometimes a bit untrustworthy) certificate authorities all able to issue certificates for any domain. By making CAs unnecessay for domain-only certificates, it would shift their market to providing more reliable validation of additional information, such as who is the owner of the domain.

                                  • Support frames in the developer tools

                                    The F12 tools currently don't work well with frames.

                                    We are already working on a version of our application that does not use frames any more. However, we will have to support existing releases of our software that use frames for at least a year or longer. Beeing unable to use F12 tools in IE11 with our old releases is really annoying and requires us to use VMs with IE10 to diagnose issues.

                                      • Simulation for older ie versions for testing purposes

                                        It would be great for developers and designers to check for compatibility issues in older ie versions via some extension.
                                        It can be developed much like webdeveloper tools in mozilla.
