Windows Insider members can try out a few extensions in Microsoft Edge on the PC version of Windows 10, with more promised in the future. However, a lot more could find their way to Edge if Microsoft sticks to a plan for porting Chrome extensions to its browser.

Based on Rossi's posts, it would appear that the tool is still early in development. We might learn more about the team's efforts Microsoft's Build 2016 developer conference in San Francisco at the end of March or at the Edge web summit on April 4.
