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.

        • headless browser for testing

          It would be great if IE could be started as a headless browser (like PhantomJS) for running unit tests, taking screenshots, measuring load time, etc without having a browser window pop up. Running automated tests on IE often fails because the browser either fails to start up or shut down properly. With a headless browser multiple browser instances can be run in parallel without taking up screen space.

                            • Before and After Pseudo Elements

                              This feature would extend the DOM tree in the DOM Explorer to include pseudo element as selectable elements (as if they were real nodes) so that the styles applied to them can be applied.

                              Proposed Design

                              - Items appear in the tree surrounded by a delimiter that indicates the 'pseudo' (e.g. :before)
                              - The node is selectable and once selected the CSS styles panes should be updated to reflect the style of the pseudo element the events pane should be empty
                              - All of the commands that impact the tree should be disabled (cut, copy, paste, add attribute, delete, etc.)

                              • all:initial

                                Supported by Firefox and Chrome and gives the developer more control over CSS cascading. This would be helpful when when writing components that get inserted in other environments.

                                Preferably both property: initial and all: initial would be supported.

                                      All other browsers allow cookies to be specified with a max-age property that replaces the expires timestamp. This allows servers to have cookies that work regardless of the clock skew on an end users computer.

                                            Web Speech is on the backlog with a priority of Medium. You can track status changes at https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/webspeechapiinput

                                            We are currently investigating Web Speech along with script-based accessibility as part of our longer term accessibility investments. This joins our wider ranging accessibility investments detailed in our Microsoft Edge for Developers blog post: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2016/02/03/2016-platform-priorities/
