Microsoft is testing a new version of Edge that dumps its rendering engine for the benefit of Chromium, which underlies Google Chrome. Chrome gets better battery life and the new Edge gets Chrome extensions. Microsoft hosts some Edge-specific extensions, but only about 100 of them. It sounds like a lot, but when you throw out duplicate functionality and a little small add-ons (like Microsoft Personal Shopping Assistant), it reduces the list. It grows, but compared to the Chome Web Store it is quite small.

So if you use the new Edge and want more browser extensions, you can install them from the Chrome Web Store. And that's good, because even if an extension is in both the Edge and Chrome stores, the Chrome version sometimes works better or has more features. For example, we cannot get the Grammatical Edge extension to log into an account to unlock Premium features. But the Chrome add-on installed on the Edge works just fine.

To install Chrome add-ons, all you have to do is turn a switch and browse to the online store. But you should be aware of a few warnings from Microsoft: If an add-on is based on Google account functionality to log in or sync, then the extension may not work in the Edge. If the extension is based on companion software on the computer, the extension may not work, even if you installed the software.
