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.

    • Support KeyboardEvent.isComposing property

      https://w3c.github.io/uievents/#dom-keyboardevent-iscomposing

      This API is already supported on other desktop browsers. Supporting it will really makes IME handling easier.

        • 103 Early Hints

          The 103 Early Hints status code allows a server to tell browsers what to pre-fetch (with link headers) before the final response is available (e.g. because the server needs to "think", or because it's fetching something from another server).

          This is functionally similar to HTTP/2 server push, but simpler and more interoperable.

          • Give extensions access to Windows.Services.Store for in-app purchasing

            It would be useful to give Edge extensions access to Windows.Services.Store so that they can easily integrate in-app purchasing and trial-restricted features via the Microsoft Store.

            • The WebDriver should not close currently open windows when starting automated testing

              I use Edge as my primary browser, but I also use NCrunch to drive automated UI testing for our web-based applications. When NCrunch kicks off tests impacted by changes I have made, by Edge browsers shut down, with all the tabs and windows lost forever.
              The IE Web Driver didn't have this issue and while I know that the browsers are not the same, the expectation is that they would behave similarly.
              Allowing the Edge Web Driver to trigger and manage its own windows, separate from any that the user has opened and is currently using, would be a welcomed…

                  • view localStorage quota from webpages

                    Because there was a bug in Edge, I was not able to save more than 50-100kb of data in the localStorage (on every webpage/domain!).
                    It was impossible for me to find out why and finished to reset completely the Edge app. So I lost all my cookies, passwords and so on.

                    Never found out why Edge had this problem and I am sure other people are leaving Edge for similar problems. Maybe it would be nice to see why my localStorage was limited to 50kb. Maybe a domain used 100MB and then no other was able to save data anymore…

                            • 3DES only available for local domains/router segments/local networks if needed. NOT FOR THE INTERNET.

                              SCHANNEL : The 3DES Cipher should be used - if needed at all - ONLY selectively and definitely kept blocked - disabled - for Internet Connections ranging outside of a local Network boundary (or outside of proxied Segments or NAT Domains or also when not being used through either encrypted VPN Tunnels).
                              I recommend this because it is weak. (64bit ciphers are generally considered weak now because of their limitation).

                              • Add VTTCue and WebVTT support

                                WebVTT: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WebVTT_API
                                VTTCue: https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/#the-vttcue-interface
                                Supported by all other browser vendors in Chrome, FF, Safari.
                                Also implement ::CUE pseudo-element to enable support in CVAA.
                                Currently all player developers need to create their own subtitles/captions implementations due to browser having fragmented support in all of the above which makes supporting accessibility very hard and cumbersome.
                                Having you support this will ensure better interoperability.
                                Please consider migrating the solution to IE11 as well as you still have it on platforms which are widely supported and EOL is not near as it seems.

                                Also opened as an issue in the platform tracker:

                                • Implement `prefetch-src` CSP directive

                                  In order to block potential data leaks through prefetch requests, it was decided [1] that a `prefetch-src`CSP directive would be added and control such requests, and that prefetch requests would have their own `Request.initiator` and an empty string destination[2].

                                  • use Surface Book dGPU for WebGL and WebVR

                                    On a Surface Book 1 and Surface Book 2, both running Edge 16 with latest patches, FishGL gets <20fps. Looking at Task Manager, the Edge process is not using the NVidia discrete GPU *at all*. WebVR on the Surface Book 2 was similarly poor in performance. Please use the dGPU when WebGL or WebVR are in-use on a tab. If that means the tab has to be suspended or reloaded when detaching, that's fine by me.
