Subject: Feature Request: Highlighting in Immersive Mode

Dear Microsoft Edge Team,

I would like to propose the addition of a highlighting feature within the Immersive Mode of Microsoft Edge, similar to the functionality provided by the Weava Highlighter extension in the Chrome Web Store.

Why is this important?

  • Enhanced Focus: Immersive Mode allows users to read articles distraction-free. Adding highlighting capabilities would enhance the reading experience.
  • Research Efficiency: Researchers, students, and professionals often need to highlight relevant content. Having this feature directly within Immersive Mode would streamline the process.
  • Content Management: Saving highlighted text in one place (similar to Weava) would facilitate content organization and management.


  • Users can directly highlight important sections without leaving the article.
  • Highlighted text is saved for future reference.
  • Time-saving: No need to copy-paste into external documents.

I believe this addition would significantly improve productivity and usability for Edge users. Thank you for considering this feature!

Best regards
