Earlier this week we reported that Microsoft Edge extensions may appear in the next Insider build. Now we have more information on the extension support for Microsoft's latest browser, Edge.
An extension called Page Analyzer (by Vorlon.js) has appeared in the Windows Store. However, this is not just an app for Windows 10. Instead, it is an extension for Microsoft Edge. It works quite seamlessly, just like installing a standard app. You click Install, and it adds a start menu entry and registers itself like an app, in addition to adding itself to the button bar of Edge. Selecting the start menu entry launches it just like an app, except in Edge.
At the time of writing, however, it is not possible to activate the extension.
The extension is centered around web developers - by allowing them to test their websites performance, e.g. is it using best practices? does it work correctly with Edge?
If you'd like to take a look at how the extension functions and works, here's a screenshot showing it off:
It is also interesting to note that this app supports ARM processors. This shows signals of Windows 10 Mobile support for Edge Extensions to be closer than expected - but we'll have to wait and see how Microsoft decides to play this out.
