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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Enable inline installation from the Store

    Inline (one-click) installation is a Good Thing for many use cases for web extensions: it improves the user experience. Two other browser developers have worked out how to handle this in a secure way.

    A call to a builtin js function browser.webstore.install() that must be in the context of a user-generated gesture would be ideal.

      • Add support for History API in Extensions

        Our browser extension, that is currently available for Firefox and Chrome, relies on History API. Without this API we cannot port our extension to Edge.

        • Implement cross-device sync

          Implement cross-device sync services (such as the open source Firefox Sync) or a new Microsoft in-house solution that synchronizes with other platforms easy.

          • Rolling patch updates

            I would love to have Edge roll in patch updates to temporarily patch small 0-day security vulnerabilities confirmed before Microsoft has had a chance to apply the patch in an update

              • Persian-based Urdu keyboard

                Persian-based Urdu keyboard. While Urdu and Persian and Arabic share 95% the same letters, Urdu layout is completely different from Arabic and Persian, and very confusing for the millions of people who know both Urdu AND Arabic or Persian.

                • Dynamic CSS transform animations janky on mousemove event

                  Currently, Edge will prioritize user events for responsiveness/performance. https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2017/06/01/input-responsiveness-event-loop-microsoft-edge/#BmaPczGdg4dDGHDA.97

                  It would appear that this causing issues when trying to update layout/rendering on a mousemove/pointermove event.

                  The result is janky animations. Check out the plunk in Edge and Chrome.

                  https://plnkr.co/edit/eCDkPjvEKWTpMirkXgV8?p=preview

                  Chrome is very smooth, whereas Edge/IE11/FireFox stutter on the mousemove event.

                          • Edge browser should be separately downloaded

                            Edge browser should be downloaded separately rather than being integrated with Windows.

                            More extensions are required.

                                      • Hide the "Make a Web Note" button. Or just pleas let me hide the useless button on the top right.

                                        I want to hide the useless buttons for making a web not, hub? and the share button. I will never use these and its an eye sore. I like Edge more than Chrome and I won't switch back to Chrome if these ridiculous buttons were gone.

                                        • Implement overlay scroll bar (ms-overflow-style)

                                          When switching between `overflow: scroll` and `overflow: hidden`, the <body> padding changed.
                                          It is annoying, overlay scroll bar can avoid hack.

                                          I can use overlay scroll bar at IE (CSS), Chrome (flag), Firefox (add-on),
                                          Edge should also.
