Microsoft brings Extensions to their Edge browser


Microsoft have released their first preview version of their Edge browser with extension support, with plans to roll out support for all Edge users soon. 

Right now Microsoft allows 3 extensions to be side-loaded into the Edge browser, including Microsoft Translator, Mouse gestures and the Reddit Enhancement Suite, with more popular apps expected to release later this year. 

Microsoft plans to allow browser extensions to be installed though the Windows Store, allowing Microsoft to control both the quality of the applications and that users have a good end-to-end experience.  


     To ensure the highest quality experience for customers, and as we have done with Windows 10 since the beginning, we will introduce extensions first to our Windows Insiders and then roll them out more broadly to all Windows 10 users. 

Initially our Insiders will download and then sideload extensions for testing purposes, but ultimately we will make extensions available to all of our customers via the Windows Store to ensure the quality of the end-to-end experience.

Right now the initial build of Microsoft Edge browser with Extension support is currently available to download through their insiders program.

Awesome, I'm still in the search for a reliable browser, and couldn't try edge for more than 5 minutes do to lack of adblock etc. Will have to give it a go when extensions are released for it.Quote
