Microsoft is trying to make Chrome extensions work on Edge

by John_A

Microsoft’s very first batch of Edge browser extensions is small, but it seems the company’s taking steps to make sure Windows users get more in the future. According to Microsoft Senior Program Manager Jacob Rossi, the tech titan is developing a “porting tool to run Chrome extensions in Edge.” It will presumably make things even easier for developers to create Edge versions of their extensions, though Rossi clarified that it doesn’t support all APIs. The tool isn’t finished yet, as well, but it’s not like most users can start installing plug-ins on their browsers anyway. Redmond has just begun testing the feature, and for now, only Windows Insiders in the Fast ring can enjoy it.

Lots of questions on this: yes we’re working on a porting tool to run Chrome extensions in Edge. Not yet finished and not all APIs supported
