Edge browser will soon support extensions

Extensions likely coming to Edge this month

Microsoft impressed with its "sequel" to Internet Explorer (Edge), but failed to gain much traction with it, which some attribute largely to a lack of extension support. It's been a long time coming, but it's almost here finally: extensions have been moved into the RS1_release branch, so support should arrive with the next insider preview. An anonymous source within Microsoft has confirmed this information.


The next Edge release is expected sometime this month; extension support is expected to arrive before the end of March should it fail to show up in the next release.
