Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that the Windows 10-exclusive browser Microsoft Edge would support Chrome-like third-party extensions. However, the company added that it would not be included in the browser when Windows 10 officially launched in July 2015. Now it appears that extension support has been pushed back until sometime in mid-2016, and will be included in Windows 10's major "Redstone" update.
Windows Central reported those delay rumors, via our sources, as part of another story earlier this month. Now WinBeta says it has heard the same thing via its own internal sources at Microsoft. When asked about those delay rumors, a Microsoft spokesperson sent the site this vague response:
It's important to note that even if extension support for Edge has been delayed for Windows 10's Redstone update, members of the Windows Insider program will likely get to test out that feature well before Redstone is released to all Windows 10 users in mid-2016.
