Last night, Microsoft introduced Extensions support for Edge in Windows 10 Build 14291. The company released three official Extensions for Microsoft Edge yesterday, and more are expected to come later this year. Now, Microsoft’s Jacob Rossi today announced on Twitter that the company will be releasing a porting tool which will allow developers to port their Chrome extensions to Microsoft Edge. The company is apparently working on it now, and it isn’t finished as not all the APIs are supported just yet.

It is worth noting that porting Chrome extensions to Microsoft Edge is actually quite easy. If you are a developer, you will be able to port your Chrome extension to Edge pretty easily after changing several lines of code. Nonetheless, this upcoming tool should make porting Chrome extensions to Edge even easier, and we hope to hear more about it from Microsoft at Build 2016 later this month.
