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.

    • 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

      • Implement caret-color support

        "caret-color" has just been implemented on Chromium and Firefox. It'd be really nice if Edge can support it too.

        The spec is CR: https://www.w3.org/TR/css-ui-3/#caret-color

        And there are already 21 tests on the W3C csswg-test repo: http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css-ui-3/section/6.2.1/

          Adding the ability to (re)name the "tabs that you've set aside" sections to have a better overview of what the different tab sections are about would further improve the great usability of this new feature that was introduced with the Windows 10 Creative Update.

              • Export current debugging session & DOM html markup to file

                We need an option to export current debugging session to file so we can debug it locally...

                E.g. Export currently loaded html page to file,
                Export currently loaded DOM to file,
                with loaded CSS and Javascript,
                Inc current session cookies for offline use

                So we can debug issues locally offline and also supply to third parties so they can reproduce bugs which exist on production and are hard to replicate

                • Implement DOM4 methods: prepend(), append(), before(), after() and replaceWith()

                  Steps to reproduce the problem:
                  1. Open the testcase http://jsbin.com/fiqacod/edit?html,js,output in Edge.

                  What is the expected behavior?
                  The test should pass.

                  What went wrong?
                  The test failed, indicating that Edge does not support the relevant DOM4 methods.

                  • Edge mobile scroll bar is invisible on white / light background

                    The Edge mobile scrollbar default colour is white

                    If the page has a white background the scrollbar is invisible because it blends into the background

                    If the page has a black background, you can see the scroll bar normally

                    Please update edge so if the page background is white, the scroll bar is a different colour so it is visible and the contrast is ok.
                    This should be done automatically for any page we visit

                      • Next Billion Users.

                        The average website is at least 2MB in size. This does not bode well for the next billion users. Users who are coming online for the very first time. Users who come online with sub optimal 2G connections. They miss out on all the benefits of the internet.

                        Javascript libraries and frameworks add to the bloat. Instead of having each page download and use the Js files. Can a js framework be built into the browser itself. We can consider the browser to be a platform. Also, considering that a JS engine isn't enough. A step further will be highly…

                              • Raise the connection timeout for slow connections as many sites don't show up at all.

                                On Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 on PC (using 3G networks), on limited bandwidth (64kbit/s), many websites will refuse to load at all, as Edge Closes the Connection as it times out. This worked fine with Opera on Windows 10, Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.1 and also works fine on Android's major browsers (Chrome, FF).
                                I suggest, the timeout should be raised on low-speed connections to allow the user to access websites at all. Adding a picture quality Setting would really not hurt either. I think this problem must be affecting many people who are on low-speed Internet.

                                  should return "Text", and not "\nText"

                                    • feedback hub link broken! Edge fails video from webcam, NO ERROR MESSG, works with legacy doc format but no user will be able to find it

                                      needs to provide useful error messages / user feedback so that a normal user can get legacy pages to display
                                      some legacy pages will NEVER be updated - eg. webcam
                                      IT MUST BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!
                                      there is no point having a link to "Feedback Hub" if it returns "page not found"

                                        • Support "chrome.identity" API

                                          Chrome, FireFox, and Opera support the chrome.identity API to handle oauth2 authentication flows. At least the methods launchWebAuthFlow and getRedirectURL are needed to support an oauth2 flow forarbitrary oauth providers siuch as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, LInkedin, etc.

                                          This API is really missing from edge.
