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.

  3. Web site based blocking of cookies, pop-ups, images and more

    Look at Opera. You have general cookies, pop-ups, images, etc settings. But you can also right-click any webpage and customize settings for it alone. For some web sites, I don't want any pop-up, even those that happen when I click on something (or especially those). In some pages I may not want any images or any images above certain resolution, as they are simply ads. And in some web sites, I don't want any flash content as I know it is only used for ads (like in forums, where you don't have any useful content in flash.

  4. Copy/Paste all form fields' content

    I often have pages with forms from which I need to copy all the fields (be it even the text ones only) and paste into the same form for another entry. More specifically, I do it mostly with two YouTube videos where I copy title, description, keywords and even a message for subscribers (and GPS location). In some cases, it's because the content for both movies is similar enough, to use as a template, and in some because I have two movies for virtually the same thing (short and real-time).

    But it would also be great for entering date into…

  6. Crossdomain cookies: Allow CORS in IE to send and receive cookies

    Current securicy policy restrict using cross-site cookies, like for multidomain shops or somehting. If I do ajax-request from one domain to another that request send without cookies information at all. It's like sandboxing, even if I write correct P3P-header.
    Now I use workaround, like https://github.com/jpillora/xdomain but i need to include it in ie-only way. I want more simple and clean solution. Other browser-engines (webkit, firefox, presto) allow me to send and receive cross-domain cookies

  7. Record icon not play icon

    May seem minor, but please change the start recording icon in Network, UI, Profiler etc to a record icon rather than a play icon.

    (Play/pause is obv correct for the debugger tab as its a different process going on)

  8. Better synchronization and autocomplete

    Import of browser history from the other browsers. Better synchronization through all devices. Bing and better autocomplete for non-eng countries! (For example chrome on my Nexus 7 suggests me much more relevant web pages).

  9. LINK rel=subresource

    Resource prefetching for early downloading of resources intended to be used on the current page.

    This would allow URLs to resources the page will require to be specified in response headers so they can be requested as soon as possible.

  11. Make behaviour of host objects more consistent

    We need wrappers around host objects like window, location. etc in IE so that they behave similar to other JavaScript objects. Though this behaviour is not defined by the specification, doing so will be make the behaviour of host objects similar to other JavaScript objects and consistent across browsers as well

    This will especially avoid problems like these - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25008099/function-prototype-bind-does-not-work-in-ie-even-in-versions-where-it-is-suppose

  13. Allow using spell checker in MSHTML on Windows 7

    MSHTML allows using spell checker in third-party apps on Windows 8, Windows 8.1. and Windows 10. Why not Windows 7? There are still millions of users running Windows 7 and there is no technical reason why it is disabled (also, other browsers allow it on Win7).

  14. font-family should be stored as array of strings, not a string that requires parsing (escaped quotes)

    Previously IE and Firefox use to have similar behavior but now since Firefox aligned itself with Chrome (Blink) behavior, I think IE should change its behavior and make all browsers consistent.

  16. Allow (aind incentivize) older Windows to run secure IE versions

    We understand you don't support older Windows versions. But the myriad of compromised machines due to old IE versions running on them hurts the internet as a whole - including your customers on newer Windows versions. It may be impossible to run the latest IE with all bells and whistles on an old OS, but maybe one just with a core feature set (and the security patches) would help patching the leaks until those systems get replaced.

  17. Modularity and integration

    The idea si that. For example, we have a runtime environment.
    Any JS or other script engine in system registers in this server.
    Any app which needs JS engine can query the server for a list of engines which support some feature. Then the server gives the app list of engines. Then the app instantiates a class which implements standartized interface for interaction between JS or other engine and an app.Then the app can use this standartized interface to execute code, inject functions implemented by app into js instance....

    For example we have firefox and chrome and ie installed in…

  20. Wrong inheritance with SVG's fill-opacity

    In IE11, if the path element of SVG has "fill-opacity" and the element is using a marker, the opacity would be inherited by marker (although marker element is NOT the child of path).
