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.

  1. Add a switch for the main contextmenu inside the developer tools

    The main context menu for a website is very minimal, but...
    E.g. here: "Select all" "insert" AND "inspect element" and "show source".
    This is maybe good for developers, but most edge users are no developers and this both entries are pointless and maybe confusing.
    In my opinion there should be a switch in the F12 Tools, or at another place, that enable and disable this both context menu entries.

    • Use Function names to represent Closure Scopes

      This feature request has also been proposed
      - to the Chromium Web Inspector team:
      https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=493156
      - to the Firebug Devtools team:
      https://ffdevtools.uservoice.com/forums/246087-firefox-developer-tools-ideas/suggestions/8158806-use-function-names-to-represent-closure-scopes

      Steps to reproduce a current problem:

      1. Write some JavaScript Code with closures created by named functions (either function declarations or named function expressions)
      2. set a breakpoint or a "debugger;" expression in an inner function
      3. Execute it with JavaScript Debugger activated

      What is the expected behavior?

      The "Scope" panel of the JavaScript debugger represent all the accessible scopes at the current state of the execution.
      When I want to watch the variables from a specific closure…

        • Make Developer tools more Front-End Dev Friendly and UI/UX appealing. Use Jsbin strategy

          The Developer tools at its heart for the new Edge browser seem to continue the same styling thus UI/UX as the old IE browsers. I think you guys are missing an opportunity here. As a front end dev I really don't like - let me rephrase that - I despise using IE dev tools because of how poor the UI is.

          I don't even understand what planet you're on... When you use Chrome dev tools, safari dev tools, fire fox dev tools, etc. the ui is IDE like almost.

          You can copy and paste right from the dom explorer section.…

                  • Silent printing

                    If you want new browser to be the browser of choice for companies that run intranet/internet apps in browser I would add silent printing. Years ago I suggested adding silent printing to IE (but that was different times and MS was not so open for feedback I guess, so let’s try one more time). BTW at this time FF allows you to enable silent printing. Just finished web app. for small shipping company, web based, very nice app, however printing is nightmare. When user hit save, data is saved and we have to print form (laser printer), barcodes (label printer),…

                    • Additional atributes for reading mode

                      Hi! I've noticed that the reading wiev of Edge does not by default support rendering pictures and SVG content. Can you consider adding optional HTML attribute for when we WANT the content to be accessible when the user opts to view our page in Reading mode? It would be most helpful for instructions, HowTo's and other content where images are a must.

                        • Allow accepting a blocked popup without needing a reload or re-post

                          Currently, when IE 11 blocks a popup and you click on "Allow once" or "Allow always", IE will reload the page that contained the blocked popup. If that was a POSTed page, the browser asks if it may resubmit the posted data. There is currently no other way to allow a blocked popup to be shown.

                          This is a problem because re-POSTing the page may produce side effects or is even prevented by the underlying web application.

                          For example, when going through an electronic payment process (e.g., using www.eps.or.at), this often involves vital popups, and pages within the process…

                            • Allow developer tools to be larger when pinned

                              I have a side monitor that is in portrait orientation. I prefer to keep developer tools docked when I'm working, but with IE the height of the dev tools window is limited, which forces me to either work in a cramped area or undock the tools. Chrome and firefox both allow you to increase the size of the devtools to as tall as you'd like, which makes them much more usable with portrait screens.

                                • native XSLT 2 support

                                  SVG, Atom, X3DOM, ePub3, polyglot XHTML5, .. all formats serving varied purposes can be obtained without learning multiple dialects like Elm, CoffeeScript, iojs.. With the growing preference for native mobile apps over web browsing, XSLT producing all of above is crucial. Irrespective of browser wars, now is the time for bringing first class support back to XML family. This will be useful for developers using webviewer XAML control (for example, in an ePub authoring app) also.

                                      • Improve performance of Math.sqrt()

                                        Compare the test run count for Math.sqrt of IE11 vs Chrome at http://jsperf.com/math-sqrt-vs-newton-raphson-method.
                                        However, IE11 beats both Chrome and FF in Newton Raphson method test (root).
