Microsoft Edge to add uBlock Origin, Ghostery, and Turn Off the Lights extensions

More extensions for the Microsoft Edge browser for Windows 10 on the PC are on the way in the near future, including uBlock Origin, Ghostery, and Turn Off the Lights.

Microsoft made the announcement on the Edge Dev team Twitter page, adding that Windows Insiders will get first crack at these extensions before they are released for all Windows 10 users:

uBlock Origin is, as you might guess from the title, an ad blocker extension, while Ghostery allows browsers to block third-party tracking from websites. The Turn Off the Lights extension will let users who watch embedded videos on websites dim everything else on the screen for a better viewing experience.
