The Windows 10 build 14291 will support three extensions like Microsoft Translator, a language translator which can translate pages in over 50 languages, the Reddit Enhancement Suite, which adds useful features like account switching, comments navigator, and User Highlighters.

The last extension will recognize mouse gestures for things like switching between tabs. "We’re participating in the W3C Browser Extension Community Group’s efforts to define standardized extension APIs based on familiar web technologies," says a Microsoft spokesperson, according to Innovation Village.

Adblock Plus, Amazon, LastPass, and Evernote are some of the other extensions that will be available later in the year, Microsoft says.

To use the extensions that are currently available, you will need to download them on Edge current preview version.

Microsoft Edge (sometimes referred to as 'Spartan') is a web browser developed by Microsoft for the company's Windows 10 platform as a replacement for the now unpopular Internet Explorer.

Though Google'sChrome browser and Mozilla'sFirefox browser are still very much leading the pack in terms of market share, Microsoft's Edge browser is steadily gaining popularity.

It will be interesting to see how much market share the Edge browser can eventually snag, especially with the increasing adoption rate of the Windows 10 operating system.
