I’ve been using the new Microsoft Edge browser as my default browser now for several weeks. I initially missed some Chrome extensions that made my life a little easier and the Microsoft Edge Extensions store hasn’t got much to offer yet. That was until I realised that Microsoft has made it possible to install extensions directly form the Google Chrome Web store into Edge! It’s super simple as well.
Open the Extensions option
Toggle the ability to “Allow extensions from other stores”, then click Allow.
Now browse to the Google Chrome Web Store by typing this URL in: https://chrome.google.com/webstore
You should see a blue bar along the top of the page letting you know you can use the “Add to Chrome” button to add any extension from the Google Chrome Web Store to Edge.
That’s all there is to it. Enjoy using your familiar Chrome extensions on Edge.
