Extensions are coming to Microsoft Edge soon via an upgraded build of Windows 10. It appears that Microsoft plans to distribute them using the Windows Store like regular Universal apps. The first Microsoft Edge extension was already spotted in the Windows Store.
This is similar to Google Chrome which also has an app store of its own hosting extensions as well as apps.
The Page Analyzer extension seems to be created for web developers. It allows them to test their website performance and compatibility with Edge.
Microsoft Edge extensions are expected to be added in upcoming Insider builds. Rumors say support for extensions might be added even in the next build. Extensions support is being tested internally and almost ready to be rolled out to the public.
Extensions support is the one of most anticipated features of the upcoming RedStone update to Windows 10. Along with other improvements, it should improve the user experience of touch screen device owners. Credits: via.
