Microsoft has officially announced that extensions for its browser Edge will be available along with a future upgrade for Windows 10 believed to be code-named Redstone.

Microsoft said it is “committed to providing customers with a personalized web experience, which is why bringing extensions to Microsoft Edge continues to be a high priority.”

Adding that it is “actively working to develop a secure extension model to make the safest and most reliable browser” for the customers, Microsoft says that it is looking forward to sharing more in a future Windows 10 update set to be available in 2016.


Focus on safety

The Redmond giant highlighted an article published back in May, where it explained in details how the company was developing Edge to be one of the safest browsers available, even with extension support.

Microsoft clearly stated that the insiders will be the first to try out extensions for Edge via the Insider Program. Unfortunately, Microsoft was unable to assign a time-frame for Insiders to begin testing the extensions. Since Redstone is only six months away, the will likely want to start soon, perhaps by the start of next year.
