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".

    • Will `proxy` API be supported in Microsoft Edge extensions

      I currently manage a top Proxy extension in Chrome, and will like to port it to the new Microsoft Edge.

      However, the `proxy` API seem to be missing/not implemented. Is this true?

      Will this fact change? Any timeline?

      • Prevent FOUT and control font loading with CSS font-display

        https://tabatkins.github.io/specs/css-font-display/#descdef-font-face-font-display

        font-display gives easy, and precise control over Flash Of Unstyled Text.

        It's makes it possible to tell the browser how long it should wait for a font before rendering a fallback.

        Some sites use JavaScript/localStorage hacks to use fallback font on the first uncached load, and then use custom fonts on later visits. This is also possible with font-display without JS/hacks.

          • Improve default focus style

            The default "dotted outline" style for elements with focus (e.g. links), is not particularly easy to see, especially if you have poor vision.

            Can this default be changed to look more like the focus style on OSX, which is a thick blue outline.

            You can see the difference by changing the "normal style" and "focus style" radio field at the top of this page:

            http://allyjs.io/tests/focus-outline-styles/index.html

            • Drag & Drop URL to create a Shortcut-Link in Explorer

              Drag & Drop URL to create a Shortcut-Link in Explorer (as in IE 11 / Firefox, etc.)
              For that reason I must switch to Firefox instead of using Edge

              • Add support for the arithmetic coded JPEG, which saves 10% of file size losslessly

                As arithmetic coding patents for JPEG have now expired, it would be nice to support arithmetic coding in the JPEG. It will allow recompress existing JPEG files using arithmetic coding losslessly, as the result size of all JPEG files will be reduced by 10%.

                • Bring back HTTP-Authentication (Basic Authentication) credential storing checkbox

                  Edge is useless without the checkbox to store HTTP-Auth credentials.

                  The workaround by adding sites with Internet Explorer to the trusted sites to then get this checkbox in Edge is ridicoulus.

                  • Provide Component Object Model access to EdgeHTML

                    COM is a great interface for all kinds of Windows apps to access Microsoft Edge. By providing COM access, Windows-based automation, including .NET (C#/VB/PowerShell etc.) and native C++, with Microsoft Edge is possible. At this time, InternetExplorer.Application object cannot be used to access EdgeHTML, so please expose COM for Windows developers!

                      • Provide "apps" mode for websites like Chrome Application Shortcuts

                        Please add support for opening websites in "app" mode (like Chrome app launcher mode).

                        Chrome allows us to create application shortcuts for a website.
                        When we open an app shortcut, Chrome is launched in a special "app" mode without address bar / browser chrome which is very nice to give websites / intranet web apps a "real app feeling" especially in Windows 10.

                        It would be great if Edge had this feature. (maybe with the ability to specify a "window color" so we could easily create web apps that look like native Windows 10 apps and optional back/forward buttons in…

                                The relational pseudo-class, ‘:has()#’, is a functional pseudo-class taking a relative selector list as an argument. It represents an element if any of the relative selectors, when absolutized and evaluated with the element as the :scope elements, would match at least one element.

                                  • CSS attr() as defined in CSS Values Level 3

                                    Allows attr() to be used in any CSS rule (not just generated content), any CSS property (not just content) and for various data types.

                                    Spec: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#attr-notation

                                    This will revolutionize what we can do with CSS and enable a kind of decoupling between content and styling that has never been possible before.
