Microsoft's Edge browser hasn't just had a facelift - it's now built using the same code as Google's Chrome, which means you can add Chrome extensions. We show you how
If you've updated to the latest version of Microsoft's Edge browser (and if you haven't yet updated, you can download it here) you can now download Chrome extensions.
And the good news is that they're very easy to install.
Using Edge, go to the Chrome web store. You'll see a blue banner across the top of page announcing that you can now add these extensions.
To enable extensions, click the button on the banner that says 'Allow extensions from other stores'. You'll get a pop-up warning that 'extensions installed from sources other than the Microsoft Store are unverified and may affect browser performance', which it's safe to ignore.

Click the blue Allow button and you'll see the banner across the top has changed to confirm that you can now install extensions.
Adding extensions is then exactly the same as if you were adding them to Chrome: find the extension you want to install, click the blue Add to Chrome button and confirm that you're happy to go ahead.
