Microsoft Edge to get support for Extensions in 2016


With Windows 10, Microsoft has introduced a new browser called Edge which offers a modern experience, Cortana integration and some other interesting features. The browser is missing a very important feature right now: support for Extensions. Microsoft previously stated that the company is planning to ship Extension support for Edge by the end of 2015 while some rumours also claimed that the company is planning to introduce Extensions support with Threshold 2 which is coming next month. Now, Microsoft today told us that the company is planning to deliver support for Extensions on Edge in 2016 — here’s the full statement:

“We’re committed to providing customers with a personalized web experience, which is why bringing extensions to Microsoft Edge continues to be a high priority. We’re actively working to develop a secure extension model to make the safest and most reliable browser for our customers, and look forward to sharing more in a future Windows 10 update in 2016”

Extensions support for Edge will probably come with the first wave of “Redstone,” which is expected to come in two waves next year. So there you have it, Extensions for Edge aren’t coming anytime this year, and you will have to wait until 2016 for that.
