Microsoft is developing Chrome extensions for Edge browser

Edge Browser

If you are a Windows user and Chrome fan, then this news definitely for you. Software giant Microsoft is planning to offer Chrome extension in Microsoft Edge, the new browser on the PC version of windows 10.

The company will offer three extensions on Edge browser in the initial stage, including Microsoft Translator, Reddit extension, and Mouse Gestures and later on LastPass, Adblock, Adblock Plus, Amazon, Evernote, and more to come as Edge extensions. Each one of the extension can be manually installed.

Jabob Rossi, an engineer at Microsoft Edge team with a series of tweets confirms the development and previews of extensions are available on Windows blog.

It seems that the tool is in development, you might need to wait till the extensions are fully rolled out and available at Windows store. It would be strange if Microsoft didn’t also produce a tool to help Firefox plugin developers to bring their wares to Edge, but there’s no word on this at the moment. We might more information from Microsoft Edge
Web Summit 2016 that will be held in San Francisco, on April 4th, 2016

You can see the preview version of the extension at Windows developer website and if you would like to download the first preview extensions visit Microsoft Edge Dev extensions page.
