With the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in August, Microsoft finally rolled out extension support for its Edge browser, making it more competitive with products like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Although the Microsoft Edge add-on selection is still not as varied nor as extensive as the other browsers, there are some pretty useful extensions that you can try now.
Here are our top five free Microsoft Edge extensions:
1. Microsoft Translator
As the name of this extension suggests, Microsoft Translator translates foreign language websites to any of 50+ supported languages. Compatible websites will display the Microsoft Translator icon on the Edge address bar. Try selecting specific text and right-click to translate.
2. Amazon Assistant
This official Edge extension is a companion add-on that enhances the Amazon online shopping experience. Amazon Assistant gives Edge users nifty shortcuts to the Deal of the Day, Wish Lists, Product Comparisons and your other favorite Amazon departments. Having personal recommendations delivered straight to the add-on is a great feature for deal-hunters.
