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".

      • Implement a stable algorithm for Array.sort

        Change your implementation of Array.sort to be stable.

        Edge is now the only browser vendor that does implement a stable sort. Chrome recently switched their sort to be stable. (https://stackoverflow.com/a/52151900)

        Use case: A stable sort is really important for browsers because so much of what they're sorting is for UI display purposes. Users don't like it when sorting a grid by a certain column and "equal" rows randomly resort if the grid decides to resort them.

            • Enable Migration of Password from Firefox/Chrome or at least via a XML file into Edge

              Enable Migration of Password from Firefox/Chrome or at least via a XML file into Edge. Chrome/Firefox lets you export the password to a XML File and this can be used to import the same into Edge. This is the main thing that is keeping me away from using Edge.

                  • PowerShell module

                    It would be awesome (and expected) to be able to interact with Edge using PowerShell. Automating the importing/exporting of favorites for example would be great.

                    • Allow embedding a pdf from blob data

                      For now it's impossible to embed a PDF file generated either by a web API or client-side script.

                      "object" or "iframe" tags don't opens pdf document when the source is an objectURL or a dataURL.

                      See issue #5411066

                      • add Support for data property in InputEvent

                        When will the support for data property for an Input Event implemented?

                        Currently the event is triggered correctly for input elements or contenteditable host editors. But the data property is undefined

                        • CSS transform:matrix3d

                          I am creating a new JS UI framework which is using this style a lot.
                          Changing the value dynamically results in beautiful transitions in Chrome, FF & Safari. In Edge however, the animations feel 20x slower (I am not even sure if the GPU kicks in) and transitions like just zooming an image to the front results in flips & rotations which should not be there.

                          Please send me an email in case you need test cases and I can add you to the repository of the new framework to see it live inside the examples.

                          • Event.composedPath()

                            https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Event/composedPath

                            neither "path" nor the new standard "composedPath()" is supported at this point. it would be nice to not use polyfills just for IE & Edge while other browsers support it already for a while.

                              Take a look at the Chrome console: You can switch the current context from the main thread to every web worker which got created. This is extremely useful for debugging workers.

                              • Console.log() -> support for multiple, comma separated arguments

                                it is kind of annoying to get outputs like "test [Object object]".
                                this is implemented in Chrome, Safari & FF for a long time already.

                                    even when `list-style` is set to `none` for lists MS Edge stil rendering the list bullets. Looks like `list-style: none` is completely ignored by MS Edge

                                    • Start implementing WebXR Device API

                                      The WebXR Device API is the future of WebVR/WebAR and is a must have for Mixed Reality devices and all other platforms. Google has started implementing this in the canary version. Please don't get behind.

                                      • Implement Intelligent Tracking Protection (ITP) as in Safari, or equivalent protection

                                        A user-agent should act to protect its user's best interest. ITP is a sensible compromise between no privacy and ad-blocking since it enables advertising without abandoning data protection. Since there is no existing standard, Edge could experiment with an approach different from ITP, but it's a good starting point (and does not break the Web).

                                        • Word meaning

                                          while reading any blog/article, if we are not getting the meaning of a word we have to search for it on a new tab. If you could add a feature so that on selection of that word, we can get the meaning.
