Microsoft working on extensions for mobile Edge

Microsoft working on extensions for mobile Edge
Microsoft hasn't done a lot to support Windows phone recently, choosing instead to focus on the desktop and laptop/hybrid segments of its market. But, Microsoft has admitted that it will have one interesting feature on the way for the mobile version of its new Microsoft Edge browser: extensions.

Microsoft said extensions will finally be made available in the mobile Edge browser with the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update expected sometime this summer. Microsoft claims that there will be a number of extensions available at launch, including AdBlock, OneNote Web Clipper, Microsoft Translator, and more. Developers will be able to submit new extensions to the Windows Store, but we'll have to see what compatibility looks like and how much developers jump on this. 

At the Microsoft Build conference in 2015, the company admitted it wouldn't be able to include extensions on mobbile Edge at first because of issues with performance and UI design, but it apparently has sorted out all of those troubles.
