A member of the Edge browser development team on Reddit's website has confirmed that the browser will soon support Google Chrome plugins. This is great news for those who rely heavily on Chrome plugins and have complained about the low variety of Edge plugins from this browser.
"Supporting Chrome plugins is one of our goals," Kyle Alden, Edge Browser Project Manager, confirmed. Given that the next version of the Edge browser will be coded based on the Chromium engine, and other Chrome-based browsers such as Vivaldi now support Chrome plugins, Edge's support for Chrome plugins seemed certain even before the official announcement.
But apart from the plugins, Alden, in response to a question from a Reddit user who asked about the possibility of a new browser coming on the Xbox One console, acknowledged that his team's main focus was on turning on "all Microsoft devices". So, in addition to the Xbox One, we can expect to see the release of the next version of the Edge browser for HoloLens headsets.
Finally, the Edge Browser Project Manager explained how Web Advanced Programs (PWA) works. Alden confirmed that PWA apps can be installed and used directly from within the browser (such as Google Chrome) as well as through the Microsoft Store.
He added that the new browser will continue to support EdgeHTML / Chakra so that older PWA applications based on the old Edge engine will run smoothly.Source
