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.

        • Better Emulate previous versions of IE!

          Improve Emulation tool to accurately represent how the CSS is rendered in previous versions of IE. People still use IE9-11, and they are all handle CSS in non-standard ways.

          • font-size-adjust & other font properties

            Add support for the CSS3 property used for adjusting font sizes consistently across font families. Supported in Firefox since the beginning.

            And please consider some of these font-related properties, too, potentially making it easier to customize and implement fonts on the web:
            * font-variant (and its children properties)
            * font-synthesis
            * font-kerning
            * @font-feature-values
            * font-language-override

            • Custom filters (shaders)

              Filter effects are a way of processing an element’s rendering before it is displayed in the document.

                • Gamepad API: Support Gamepad Vibration & Force Feedback effects

                  There is the proposed Gamepad API http://caniuse.com/#search=gamepad in development, however the specification does not have any planned means of utilizing vibration in gamepads.

                  It is a rather basic feature that enhances the gaming experience.
                  There should be a recommendation for it or prefixed functionality for IE. A complementary function to the API like myGamepad.setVibration(leftMotor, rightMotor) would be ideal.

                  In the future I'd also like to see a way to have force feedback effects for devices that support them, like Joysticks and Steering Wheels which would be useful for simulators and medical applications.

                  Thanks in advance!

                    We have the maxlength attribute to control the maximum number of characters in an <input> or <textarea>. The minlength attribute is new in HTML5, and is used to specify the minimum number of characters. We definitely need that, please be the first browser to implement it.

                      • Transferable for postMessage in Web Worker

                        The postMessage API for Web Workers in Chrome and Firefox supports a "Transferable" interface allowing certain types of objects such as ArrayBuffers and Typed Arrays to be "moved" from a worker context to the parent context, or vice-versa, without copying.

                        This can be essential for good performance in image and video-processing tasks that need to ship around megabytes at a time.

                          • Disable the tile version of IE via Group Policy or some other Enterprise management tool.

                            Certain websites require add-ons that do not run in the tile version of IE in Windows 8.1+, thus causing the user to manually switch to the desktop version of IE. For end-user simplicity, it would be nice to have the ability to disable the tile version of IE via Group Policy or some other Enterprise management tool.

                              I would like to have an option to have the items in this tab expanded by default, or maybe an "expand all" button at the top so I can quickly toggle all items. It gets tedious constantly expanding them.

                                    • Split IE into two versions: Normal and Developer mode

                                      You should split IE into two different browsers/executables:
                                      One default for normal user where devtools is not available(which may result in better performance?)
                                      One for developers where the tools are available and where the browser GUI itself can include debugging tools shortcuts etc.

                                      • Possibility of selecting text from links

                                        Make a possibility of selecting text from links as it was in Opera <=12 or Firefox (with alt key pressed).
                                        The perfect option: drag left/right - text selection; up/down - drag&drop

                                          Update the IE implementation of Regions to match the current spec and interoperate with the Safari implementation
