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.

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.

    • Bring `gap` property to flexbox

      As outlined in the linked issue, having the ability to use grid-gap on flexbox (which is soon to be renamed just "gap" by the CSS Working Group because "grid-gap" doesn't make sense when used on flexbox) solves a major pain point that developers are facing.

      See the issue for more details:

      • Implement CSS 'overscroll-behavior'

        Consider implementing the new CSS overscroll-behavior property.

        ## Specification
        This feature specification is being incubated in WICG:
        https://wicg.github.io/overscroll-behavior/

        Additional background on this feature may be found here:
        https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/769

        ## Summary
        CSS overscroll-behavior standardizes a supercharged version of "-ms-scroll-chaining". It allows developers to determine the browser's behavior once a scroller has reached its full extent.
        The unused delta can be propagated to the parent causing scroll chaining, create a glow/bounce effect without chaining, or just get consumed silently. In particular when used on viewport defining element, it controls if overscroll can be used for navigation actions such as pull-to-refresh or swipe…

        • Support Media Queries level 4 syntax improvements

          CSS Media Quries Level 4 bring in a bunch of syntactic improvements. They make media queries much more readable and maintainable.

          https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#mq-syntax

          Here's an example:

          Before:

          @media (min-width: 20em), not all and (min-height: 40em) {
          @media not all and (pointer: none) {

          }
          }

          After:

          @media ((width >= 20em) or (height < 40em)) and (pointer) {

          }

          • Implement "stroke-align:outset" - single and multiple outside strokes for text

            We need outside strokes for text, because the current centered strokes are not pretty - the intrude the font fill.

            An image illustrating how centered strokes aren't pretty / don't do what typically is intended (leaving the fill of the font unaffected):
            https://twitter.com/TobiReif/status/942805851017969664

            I hope you will implement stroke-align:outset.

              • 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.

                  • Support for @counter-style

                    Related w3 document:
                    https://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/

                    The Internationalization WG observes that Edge does not pass the tests found here:

                    See https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/counter-styles.en.html (click on the large text in the left-most column to run the tests)

                    Several groups have observed the need for counter style support. The Arabic Layout TF finds that it is needed for Persian support. Richard Ishida reports that vertical text lists require it as well. Firefox is observed to provide this support.

                    • Implement CSS `display: flow-root` (modern clearfix)

                      `display: flow-root` is a modern way to force a block to be a formatting context that floated elements are contained in (aka clearfix).

                      From the spec [1]:

                      > The element generates a block container box, and lays out its contents using flow layout. It always establishes a new block formatting context for its contents.

                      Tab Atkins and Elika Etemad (fantasai) from CSSWG consider the feature stable enough to be implemented [2].

                      • Add support for CSS printing hints

                        Other browsers support some level of CSS hints for printing to hint to the browser to use landscape over portrait, and what margins to use.

                        @page{

                        • Implement the update media feature from MQ4

                          The update media query from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that responsively update the screen, from those that cannot, or those that can but only slowly.

                          Authors can use that to style things differently on print vs ebook readers, even though both media are paginated. This kind of nuance was not possible to express just with @media print {...}

                          The specification is over here:
                          https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#descdef-media-update

                          • Implement the overflow media features from MQ4

                            The overflow-block and overflow-inline media queries from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that paginate vs media that scroll or media that clip using media features instead of media types.

                            That way, you can do

                            @media (overflow-block: paged) {
                            /* do something smart for pagination */
                            }

                            and that will do the right thing when printing AND in ebook readers that paginate instead of scrolling, instead of

                            @media print {
                            /* do something smart for pagination */
                            }

                            which would work on print but fail in ebook readers.

                            The specification is over here:

                              When you're rendering to PDF, this is a vector format, so there's not actual limit on the resolution. The resolution media feature has been extended in media queries 4 to be able to express that.

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

                                        • Suport for calc in rotate/scale/for time vals

                                          But there's still something missing & with vars now supported, it's more important than ever: calc in rotate/scale/for time vals.
