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.

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".

  1. Support the '.displayName' property for the F12 developer tools

    Both Firefox and Safari support the '.displayName' property in their developer tools. Chrome has partial support (debugger - not yet profiler, but is working on it).

    This is crucial for many of us that have large codebases of anonymous Functions.

    A suggestion: over the years as this property has been added to the other browsers, the temptation has been to try to do some level of static analysis to determine Function names. In the end, this always fails to capture some use case given that JavaScript is incredibly flexible. Functions are Objects in JavaScript. A core idea in OO is…

    • Collaborate on and push a new standard for "active updates' (pinning to task and start)

      As far as I know, there is no one standard for how things like pinning sites to "taskbar" or "start", iconography, having pushed or polled content, work.

      My website has about 30 lines of HTML meta lines to handle new IE, older versions of IE, and Safari on iPad, etc.

      Let's create one standard at the W3C and have everyone follow it.

      • First Open Source IE

        Open Source IE, You are not making any money off of IE. Then why keep it closed , also every other browser is light years ahead of IE, then what strategic advantage does it serve ?

        Keeping IE closed will hurt the company , and making it opensource will expose tons of bugs initially but in long run if you are able to build a successful open source community may be it may turn around the plates and many developers who left windows might comeback.

        Not many people want to use IE infact many people i know first download a…

        • Add a "standards" option (or something) on the category dropdown, please

          I'm surprised that if you have a "miscellaneous" in the dropdown above, there is no "web standards" or "standards" dropdown. This would be a good place to collect all the ideas that are standards related, right?

            With the inclusion of the Promise object in sight, it's time to push for the creation of methods such as :

            Array.everyAsync()

            Array.findAsync()

                • Implement the W3C Efficient XML Interchange standard

                  EXI has now been a standard since 2008. It is time to provide this "binary XML support" to get the fat out of web transfers for all sites. I'm also trying to champion this idea with the .NET and ASP.NET communities and look forward to the day we can say it is done.
                  -thanks

                  • :scrolling psuedoclass

                    Currently, JS has to be used to apply styles to a scrolled container. It would be fantastic to have a psuedoclass like :scrolling or :overflowing to apply specific styling, like correcting for the space taken up by a scrollbar or perhaps applying a fixer header automatically.

                    • compatability mode

                      For single host, allow different compatibility mode settings per port. Primarily for developers who need to maintain older sites but also design new sites and test locally using IIS or IIS Express where "localhost" needs to be in compatibility mode for some sites and in edge mode for others.

                      • Persist console settings

                        This feature would persist the state of the various toggles in the F12 console across sessions.

                        Proposed Design
                        - No UI changes
                        - Any time any setting is changed the setting is written to disk
                        - When F12 is loaded the settings are read from disk
                        - Last in always wins and no sync across multiple open F12 sessions
                        - The settings should use the same persistence system as other settings

                        • Implement the same SSL fallback mechanism in old versions of IE

                          IE11 soon will will prevent insecure fallback to SSL 3.0 for Protected Mode sites. The same security mechanism should be applied to the older versions of IE11 as well.

                            Sometimes when I am editing a stylesheet of a page I like to see what something would look like with styles before reloading the page etc.

                            Currently, if you paste styles into the inline styles section on the right hand side of DOM explorer, they all go onto one line. In Google Chrome they separate and the styles are applied. I would like to see this in IE

                                • Make CSS unit 'ch' consistent with other browsers

                                  Currently, IE claims to support the 'ch' CSS unit (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#font-relative-lengths), but its implementation differs from other browsers' one. While other browsers consider '1ch' equal to the overall width of the character, including its side-bearings, IE seems to take into account only the width of the painted area, without side-bearings. This makes IE's implementation almost useless in practical tasks like http://lea.verou.me/2012/02/simpler-css-typing-animation-with-the-ch-unit/. Can the implementation of this unit be changed for the parity with other browsers, so we could use it interoperably?

                                  • Customize headers in network monitor view

                                    Let me choose which headers to show in the network monitor, and whether any headers should be grouped. The design of the network monitor view in Windows 10 TP (Feb 2015) with its combined Path/Name header (and the removal of the bar graph illustrating request performance and timing) is frustrating.

                                      • Automatic SSL certificate selection based on URL

                                        Google Chrome has a group policy "AutoSelectCertificateForUrls". IE could offer a similar functionality to say "this certificate is for these URLs", that is a list of URLs to be maintained per certificate. Or map URL patterns to certificates based on their attributes, e.g. Issuer or FriendlyName. The IE then automatically selects the right certificate and the user is freed from the decision, which certificate to choose, especially if he has more than one from the same Root CA. The certificate selection dialog is then only needed if the same URL is configured for more than one certificate or no URLs…

                                        • F12 window "roll-up" and "roll-down"

                                          Sometimes I need to debug issues in IE on client machines that have limited screen resolution such that switching between F12 tools and IE tab(s) is painful. I find this to be particularly true among clients using ultra books and tablets with less than 1080 vertical pixels. I realize the F12 tools already dock/undock, minimize and are themselves resizable but that only goes so far on such small screens. (Note: I’m referring specifically to cases where issues are not reproducible on development machines and thus the emulation options, as great as they are, wouldn’t help here.)

                                          I'd love to see…
