Ever since Microsoft rolled out its new Web browser, Microsoft Edge, along with its Windows 10 operating system over the summer, users have been wondering when Microsoft will roll out improvements to the browser. That's not because people aren't happy with Edge.
In fact, a lot of people are switching to Edge from other Web browsers, including Microsoft's Internet Explorer. But in at least one way, Edge doesn't feel complete yet.
If you use the Web browsers Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, you probably use download extensions to make your browsing more customized to your interests. There are extensions, for example, that can help you shop smart, organize your calendar or online reading list, dim the lights on your computer screen, or much more.
Microsoft Edge doesn't have extensions. But, it will soon, judging by a Microsoft Edge page designed for Web developers that was accidentally posted, and then quickly pulled down. (See photo next page.)
Microsoft briefly posted a site asking users to start testing its Edge extensions. Two extensions visible are for Pinterest and reddit. But the site looks incomplete.
However, it's likely Microsoft will roll out extensions sometime in 2016, if not sooner. Keep reading Happening Now for updates on Edge extensions.
