Bitwarden password manager extension comes to Microsoft Edge

Microsoft's Edge browser has no shortage of password manager extensions, and now you can add another to that list. Bitwarden has announced that it has launched an extension for Edge on the Windows Store, giving users another choice for managing their passwords within the browser (via OnMSFT).

Bitwarden has been available in other browsers, such as Chrome and Firefox, for some time, and you can expect a similar experience with Edge. Just as you'd expect from a password manager, Bitwarden lets you securely store an unlimited number of passwords, auto-fill logins on websites, and sync your password vault across devices. however, the real draw of password managers like Bitwarden, is their ability to generate strong passwords with a click, helping you to keep your accounts more secure.

If you decide to give Bitwarden a shot, the company notes that you may run into a few snags due to some limitations with Edge's extension support. Performance could take a hit in certain areas, and some features have "been disabled and/or do not function the same (or as well) as other browsers."

Edge is slowly, but surely, gaining support for more popular extensions over time. Most recently, Grammarly, a spelling and grammar checker, added an extension to Edge's lineup.

In any case, if you're looking to try out Bitwarden, you can grab the extension for free from the Windows Store.
