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".

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.

    • Allow sending browsing from PC to devices

      Edge allows you to send browsing sites from devices to your PC but not the other way around.

      • Allow copying computed CSS values

        Currently, I only have the option to right click and choose Copy from the menu, which copies the whole `property: value` pair. I would like to be able to copy just the value so that I don't have to delete the `property: ` part every time.

        • Suport "appearance: none" for <input>

          Would be nice if Edge supports appearance (or -webkit-appearance) set as 'none' for <input> elements, like radio or checkbox.

              • RTC Data Channels

                Data channels allow a web application to send and receive generic application data peer-to-peer.

                This feature request is specifically about the *data channel* component of the WebRTC specification. This is separate from Object RTC and WebRTC 1.0 feature requests because the Platform Status site breaks out data channels separately.

                RTC Data Channels:

                Platform status: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/rtcdatachannels/?q=data%20channels

                • support for RTCRtpSender.replaceTrack

                  ORTC introduced RTCRtpSender.replaceTrack as an alias for replaceTrack:

                      • right click context search

                        When right clicking on a word, it should give you an option to search bing/Cortana for that word.

                        However if you are using inprivate mode, this doesn't work.

                        In all other browsers like chrome, even in internet explorer you can right click search while using inprivate mode.

                        • File API support for extensions

                          One great addition to Edge extensions would be the ability to write files .

                          There are of course security issues related to reading or writing files to the file system, but at some point, Edge will support the Downloads API (6 out of the 20 most popular Firefox extensions rely on this API). This API (chrome.downloads) allows to write a file to the Downloads folder out of an external URL. Why not then allow an extension to generate files limited to that folder ?

                          That would allow saving videos (some streaming protocols need processing so the Downloads API is not…

                                  • Implement the color-gamut media feature from MQ4

                                    Implement the color-gamut media feature: it lets authors detect screens with broader than usual color gamut, like the newer macs and iphones.

                                    This is already supported in Chrome and Safari

                                    • Get Browser History

                                      How on earth do I go about getting Microsoft Edge's browser history programatically?

                                      I don't care what language we use I just need a starting point. Every modern day browser has a database file that can be read.

                                        • Transform Google AMP URLs back to original URL when shared

                                          When viewing an AMP page, any sharing action results in the original website's URL being shared instead of the Google AMP URL. This makes sense if sharing from a mobile device with the Google AMP url displayed but the person on the receiving end is viewing it on a desktop.

                                          Safari is doing this:
