Microsoft today released Windows 10 Build 14291 to Insiders in the Fast ring. With the latest update, Microsoft is finally introducing Extension support for Edge. The company is releasing extensions for Reddit Enhancement Suite, and Microsoft Translator, and more.
Today, we’re happy to announce that the first set of extensions for Microsoft Edge are now available to preview via the Windows Insider Program. You can try out extensions starting in build 14291, which was released today to the Fast ring. Visit our new extensions page at Microsoft Edge Dev to learn more.
In keeping with our commitment to an interoperable web, we’re participating in the W3C Browser Extension Community Group’s efforts to define standardized extension APIs based on familiar web technologies. Today, we’re previewing our first step towards that goal.
This release supports a selection of preview extensions that have been validated by our team to work with the current set of supported APIs. Some planned APIs are not yet supported, but will be coming in future previews. We’ll share additional examples of extensions with future releases.
Extensions are available to Insiders in Build 14291, and you can know more about them in the video below.
