How to Install Google Chrome Extensions in Microsoft Edge



  Chrome extension store appears in Edge browser

Microsoft's new Chromium-based edge browser is now available – in beta. By default, however, you can only install a small number of Microsoft approved extensions. To install extensions from the Chrome Web Store in the new Edge:

Microsoft is beta testing New Version from Edge, which saves its rendering engine in favor of Chromium, which forms the basis for Google Chrome. Chrome extends battery life and the new Edge gets Chrome extensions. Microsoft hosts some edge-specific extensions, but only about 100 of them. That sounds like plenty, but if you throw away duplicate features and small extensions (like the Microsoft Personal Shopping Assistant), that list will disappear. It's growing, but it's quite small compared to the Chome Web Store.

So, if you're using the new Edge and want more browser extensions, you can install them through the Chrome Web Store. And that's great, because even if an extension exists in both the Edge and Chrome stores, sometimes the Chrome version works better or has more features. For example, we can not get the Grammarly Edge extension to sign in to an account to unlock premium features. However, the Chrome extension installed on Edge works fine.

To install Chrome extensions, just flip a switch and navigate to the online store. However, you should know some warnings from Microsoft: If an extension to log in or sync relies on the Google Account feature, the extension may not work in Edge. If the extension is based on companion software on the PC, the extension may not work even if you have installed the software.
