Microsoft Edge browser extensions leaked, arriving soon
As we know that, Microsoft almost had the perfect replacement for decaying titan that was Internet Explorer. Well, almost. Microsoft Edge was fast, light, and capable. It was, in short, good enough for casual browsing. But for the less casual users that probably make up more than half of its user population, the browser was severely lacking in one crucial feature: extensions. Microsoft promised extensions would be coming, but delayed fulfilling that promise to next year. Now it seems that it might be closer than we expected, with a leaked image making its way over the Internet to show how those extensions will look and work.
Extensions are an interesting phenomenon on web browsers. They are, to some extent, the equivalent of apps on our smartphones, extending the platform’s core functionality with third party features and integrations. They have also become where the lines are drawn in today’s browser wars.
So when Microsoft Edge launched without support for extensions of any kind, the browser felt naked, to be graphic about it. Microsoft was well aware of the need and promised easy to install, and easy to port, extensions would be coming soon.
