Edge also features support for extensions - both Chrome's own, and Edge-specific ones. Batches of Windows users will receive an update including the new Edge over the next few months.

While Chrome has mercifully eaten Microsoft's browser market share, with Microsoft abandoning its own engine, content can finally be optimised to run across more browsers and users will get the same consistent experience, as the developers intended ... in the future, anyway. While there have been stable releases before, all of these were not officially released by Microsoft.
