microsoft_edge_browserThe Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10 is a completely different beast from Microsoft’s previous browser, Internet Explorer. It is fast, smooth, but if there is one thing missing it would be its support of browser extensions, a feature that many have grown accustomed to when using browsers like Chrome or Firefox.

The good news is that it looks like extension support is finally here, sort of. In the latest Windows 10 test build, it seems that Microsoft has decided to include a preview of extension support for the Edge browser. Prior to this, last week we reported that extension support could arrive in the next beta, and sure enough it has.

According to Microsoft, “The Windows Insider build will include three preview extensions: Microsoft Translator, an extension that automatically translates pages in over 50 different languages, a Mouse Gestures extension, and an early preview version of the popular Reddit Enhancement Suite (RES).  Later this year customers will find popular extensions from partners like AdBlock, Adblock Plus, Amazon, LastPass, Evernote and more.”

As to when this Redstone update is expected to be released, there is no solid release date yet but it has been speculated that it should be available in June 2016, so that’s something to keep an eye out for.
