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.

      • Hide the "Make a Web Note" button. Or just pleas let me hide the useless button on the top right.

        I want to hide the useless buttons for making a web not, hub? and the share button. I will never use these and its an eye sore. I like Edge more than Chrome and I won't switch back to Chrome if these ridiculous buttons were gone.

        • Arabic text in alert() should appear in RTL by default

          When using an alert()-statement in which arabic text is included (like alert("דךגלכחדךלגיכלגדיכ\nלחידליגדלכדגכ\nלחידלגיכ");
          ) , the alignment of the message will appear in Left-To-Right (LTR), unless you specify the direction in the html-attribute. Chrome detects automatically, that these characters need RTL-direction and shows them accordingly in RTL directly.

          • Enable inline installation from the Store

            Inline (one-click) installation is a Good Thing for many use cases for web extensions: it improves the user experience. Two other browser developers have worked out how to handle this in a secure way.

            A call to a builtin js function browser.webstore.install() that must be in the context of a user-generated gesture would be ideal.

                      • I wish to prevent Edge from offering word assists. I am taking an online course and this disrupts my learning exercise

                        I am using Edge to do online work as part of a language course. I do not want edge to always offer words when I select an input box.

                        • Some fonts do not render in Edge

                          I have this problem where Edge does not render the Ravie font in a shown PDF file (the text in that font just does not show up!). In Chrome, IE, Adobe Reader etc. etc. it all works correctly ...

                          • Group Policy for MS Edge to set a homepage but, allow users to change it. Like GPP Registry

                            Currently, there is a GPO that would allow admin to set a homepage for MS EDGE, this however locks down the users ability to change the homepage.
                            When you zoom in to the registry where the homepage is set, it has a warning: It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy

                            Example:

                            Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected - It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy]
                            "ProtectedHomepages"=hex:01,00,00,00,06,ba,76,4e,b0,08,3e,cc,e2,88,ce,2f,b3,c4,\
                            19,e7,ae,dc,31,71,c4,30,2c,81,75,60,e5,cb,63,4d,71,ab,8f,12,97,fe,1b,1f,f9,\
                            5c,4a,e5,c8,72,33,ce,53,b5,c6,5f,e0,de,97,c7,d9,dc,93,3b,24,4d,f8,db,49,e7,\
                            38,08,06,8f,f5,5e,34,50,27,c7,bb,4f,6c,49,03,ff,ca,8f,1f,48,f6,57,82,00,69,\

                            f5,b2

                            So, many control environments may want to set a different URL to be the default homepage but want to allow users to change it later on…

                              • Write Edge in managed code

                                I know you've tried to GC the native code, but it's not enough.

                                There are still UAF bugs. There are still type bugs. It's time to put an end to them once and for all. Write in managed code. We know that Microsoft can create environments that are type safe; it's time to actually use one.

                                  I would like to see a feature for navigating to "landmark regions" using the keyboard. Very similar to the way the F6 key works in the Windows Explorer (try it! :)

                                  Landmark regions can be defined by the page author by either using ARIA landmark roles (http://w3c.github.io/aria/aria/aria.html#landmark_roles), or HTML5 elements that default to having landmark roles (see summary, below, for a list of these elements).
                                  Note that the generic landmark role="region" - and its corresponding html "section" element - must have a label before it is considered a true landmark, whereas nav, aside, etc do not technically require…

                                      • Rolling patch updates

                                        I would love to have Edge roll in patch updates to temporarily patch small 0-day security vulnerabilities confirmed before Microsoft has had a chance to apply the patch in an update

                                        • Persian-based Urdu keyboard

                                          Persian-based Urdu keyboard. While Urdu and Persian and Arabic share 95% the same letters, Urdu layout is completely different from Arabic and Persian, and very confusing for the millions of people who know both Urdu AND Arabic or Persian.
