15+ Best Microsoft Edge Extensions to Enhance Your Browsing Experience

After months of anticipation, Microsoft Edge Chromium has finally been launched. Built on the open-source Chromium framework, Edge Chromium offers a similar look and feel to Google Chrome. The best part is that all the extensions and add-ons that work on Chrome can also be used on Edge Chromium. In this article, we will introduce you to some of the best Microsoft Edge extensions that will enhance your browsing experience.

How to Install Edge Chromium

To install Edge Chromium, simply head over to the Microsoft Edge download page and download the appropriate version for your operating system. The installation process is similar to any other software installation. After the installation, Edge Chromium will automatically sign in with your Microsoft account, and you can choose to import your bookmarks, autofill data, and history from Google Chrome.

How to Install Extensions on Edge Chromium

To install extensions on Edge Chromium, open the browser and type “chrome://extensions” or “edge://extensions” in the URL bar. This will take you to the Extension manager page. Alternatively, you can click on the three dots at the top-right corner and select Extensions.

On the Extension manager page, Microsoft will prompt you to download extensions from the Microsoft Store. However, if you want to use extensions from the Chrome store, you can enable the option to “Allow extensions from other stores” by clicking on the three buttons at the top-left corner.

Once you have enabled the third-party extension option, you will see the “Add to Chrome” button on the extensions page. Clicking on this button will add the extension to Edge Chromium.
