Microsoft Edge Will Support Firefox And Chrome ExtensionsNot coming anytime soon though.

Good news for all the potential Edge users and extensions developers out there. During Microsoft Build 2015 conference, the software giant has revealed that their upcoming browser will support both Firefox and Google Chrome extensions.

Although it’s not yet certain how exactly will the users will be able to install add-ons and whether or not developers will have to make deep adjustments, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore did show Reddit Enhancement Suite, which was ported from the Google’s Chrome version.

The bad news? Extension support is not coming anytime soon as the project was pushed back to the “post RTM” schedule. At least the browser itself is launching this summing, together with Windows 10.
