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.

    • Remove Share/ Add Notes or a turn off option

      Not everybody wants a share and add notes button. I personally have no use for them and it simply clutters my browser. I would like to see a turn off option for these add ons. I don't like them and don't want them. Having the option to remove pointless and annoying add ons that YOU have decided I want or need should be an option. Whatever happened to freedom of choice. I should have that option to choose whether I want these add ons or not. And I don't PLEASE rectify this as I know many are unhappy these add…

        • Visual Studio + Edge + TypeScript Debugging

          I was so excited to hear that we could finally debug JavaScript from within Visual Studio using Edge. I wrongly assumed this meant TypeScript too, but it does not appear to work.

          • Mozilla Firefox has the ability to show many rows and columns of tiles when a new tab is selected (These are customizable with favourites).

            Mozilla Firefox has the ability to show many rows and columns of tiles when a new tab is selected These are customizable with favourites on the new tab page. This is in an extension in Firefox. Very useful, much more useful than just the eight tiles on a new tab page which is currently in Edge

            • Async Generators / Async Iterators

              Async iterators and async generator functions(https://github.com/tc39/proposal-async-iteration) are now a stage-3 ECMAScript proposal, nearly finished. They make many styles of programming in JavaScript easier (https://ponyfoo.com/articles/javascript-asynchronous-iteration-proposal); in particular, they are important for WHATWG Streams (https://streams.spec.whatwg.org). As of 2017-10-22, async generators have already been implemented in Blink, Firefox, and WebKit.

                • Implement inline replies for web notifications

                  We intend to extend the Notifications API to allow developers to show notifications that let users type a reply within the notification itself, and deliver this reply back to the service worker in the notificationclick event. See the spec change pull request at https://github.com/whatwg/notifications/pull/132 and explainer here: https://github.com/anitawoodruff/inline-notification-replies

                  Edge could implement this using the Windows Action Center APIs for specifying a 'quick reply text box' in notification toasts: see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design/shell/tiles-and-notifications/adaptive-interactive-toasts#inputs

                    https://wicg.github.io/feature-policy

                    Feature policy is a mechanism for developers to enable and disable web platform features on their sites, in their pages and in third-party content which they have framed.

                    It allows control of existing features such as XMLHttpRequest and geolocation, as well as new features such as WebVR

                    • Please keep loading indicator spinning while page is not fully loaded/displayed

                      Often when a page loads, loading indicator disappears very quickly, and I don't have visual feedback that somethings are being processed in background, I just get an empty page, and when I start to think that the link is dead or something else went wrong, page suddenly appears.

                        • 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.

                          • Implement link rel="modulepreload"

                            modulepreload is a new link relation that behaves similar to preload, but different in several key ways. For example, it interprets its attributes and changes to them differently; it uses the module map instead of the preload cache; and it allows optionally fetching descendant modules as an optimization.

                            Spec: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/links.html#link-type-modulepreload

                            Tests: https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/blob/master/preload/modulepreload.html

                              Can you please display a thumbnail / preview view on the right-hand side when you go into upload documents to a SharePoint Site. It would be handy to preview content inside the document(s) so you can make sure you are uploading the correct document. This is possible with Chrome and IE.

                              • Change to uncheck Use Microsoft compatibility lists as default in about:flags

                                This "Use Microsoft compatibility lists" option act as block to visit many websites using edge because this option misdiagnose that sites has compatibility problems

                                However those sites doesn't have any compatibility problem with edgehtml and if user change to unchecked this option they can visit all website as they want, that's ridiculous

                                Compatibility lists already meaningless option and make Edge most inconvenient browser for most people

                                So Edge dev have to uncheck and remove option asap !

                                  • Add support for RFC4709: Mounting Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) Servers

                                    Right now, getting people to mount a webdav folder involves and end user following various complicated instructions to manually mount the server using "Add network location".

                                    What should be possible is for the end user to click on a link, and have the process kicked off as if they used the "Add a network location" and entered a webdav endpoint.

                                    This will drastically reduce the administrative burden of configuring webdav drives, in an RFC compliant manner.

                                      the favorites bar width is way too large after your update and can't be made narrower.
                                      Either go back to original format or allow users to adjust width of bar

                                      • Please support imageData for pageAction.setIcon

                                        I've been attempting to port a simple Chrome extension which builds its icon dynamically to reflect the state of the current page (which would otherwise require 40 distinct icons), and this is currently blocking me. Can't imagine I'm the only one by a long chalk.
