In a statement from Microsoft‘s senior program manager Jacob Rossi, the company is trying to Port a tool to run Chrome extensions in Edge. This as the case may be will make development easier for Edge version of their extensions despite the fact that not all APIs are said to be in support.
The software isn’t yet fully developed but users can start installing plug-ins on their browsers though. Redmond on the other hand had started the test outs for feature characteristics just that only Windows Insiders in the Fast ring are enjoying it.
Lots of questions on this: yes we’re working on a porting tool to run Chrome extensions in Edge. Not yet finished and not all APIs supported
