Microsoft has chosen to make it easier for developers to port their Chrome extensions over to Edge. While the software maker is only releasing three basic extensions today, developers will be able to create their own extensions easily. "We’re participating in the W3C Browser Extension Community Group’s efforts to define standardized extension APIs based on familiar web technologies," says a Microsoft spokesperson. "Today, we’re previewing our first step towards that goal."

Microsoft Edge browser extensions now available for Windows 10 testers

Extensions will be available in the Windows Store once the feature ships later this year to all Windows 10 users. Microsoft is promising that AdBlock, Adblock Plus, Amazon, LastPass, and Evernote extensions will be available later this year. Right now, this is just an early look at how extensions will function in Microsoft Edge, but the company plans to update the experience as it continues to test its latest Windows 10 updates.
