A leaked Store entry of the first Microsoft Edge extension revealed interesting information about upcoming extensions support of Windows 10's default browser.
The store entry of the extension Page Analyzer is hidden from the Store application on Windows 10, the Microsoft Store website, and search engines currently which means that it cannot be opened unless you have the direct link.
The site that leaked the news, Windows Blog Italia, did not reveal the link unfortunately which means that we have to rely on the information they provide instead.
So what does the Page Analyzer store entry reveal about upcoming extensions support in Microsoft Edge?
The rumor mill suggests that Microsoft will include extension support in one of the next Windows 10 Insider Builds which is expected to be pushed out soon by the company.
Names of extensions that are likely part of the first wave of extensions available for Edge leaked earlier, and one should expect Pinterest, Reddit Enhancement Suite, Page Analyzer and AdBlock among the first batch of extensions for the Microsoft Edge browser.
