Microsoft has now confirmed that Edge extensions support won’t be arriving until 2016.

It was reported recently that while it was initially planned to have extensions support out with the next major update for Windows 10 that arrives next month, Microsoft has instead decided to delay the feature’s roll out until early next year, it will be coupled with the Redstone update expected to arrive in early 2016.

Not having Extensions until 2016 is disappointing for users who choose to use Microsoft Edge. I bet, this delay will cause Extension makers to not make extensions for Edge, and just release extensions to Firefox, Chrome, and Opera.

I agree this is very disappointing, and a bad start to MS improved browser. A lot of Edge users are complaining on forums that there are no extensions/add-ons. I bet, some Edge browser users would go use Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or even back to using Internet Explorer 11 which all have extensions for adding extra features to their browsers.
