Microsoft formally launched its revamped Edge extensions site today, detailing its new features and improvements in a blog post. Introduced earlier this year, the new site aims to increase accessibility while addressing some of the main concerns Microsoft had hear from user feedback.
The main focus for this revamp is on improved navigation. The homepage presents various categories for extensions on the left side while highlighting editor's picks, trending extensions, and more in the middle of the page. To improve searching, Microsoft says it has added the most relevant information and actions to each search result.
In addition to improvements to general browsing, Microsoft touts accessibility improvements as well. The website has been built specifically to take advantage of high contrast mode and narrator. First-time users should also have an easier time navigating with an increase to "hand holding" in the extensions manager page.
The improved extensions site should be available for everyone to check out now. Microsoft adds that it is working on bringing a simplified experience to extension developers with improvements to the Partner Center.
