Home » Microsoft Edge to get AdBlock Plus with the Windows 10 Redstone Update

A lot of users use adblockers for eliminating ads and better reading experience while browsing the web. Adblocking extensions are available for all major web browsers, except Microsoft Edge, but that’s likely to change soon.

Developers of Adblock Plus, one of the most popular adblocking extensions for web browsers announced via its official website that Adblock Plus extension for Windows 10 is in works. This extension is already available on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, but since Edge still doesn’t allow the extensions, users are unable to install it on Microsoft’s new main browser.

We’re talking a lot about Windows 10 Redstone Update and its features, and one of the changes that the next major update for Windows 10 will bring is to allow the use of extensions in Microsoft Edge. Staff from Adblock Plus noticed this fact, and they started to work on the extension for Microsoft Edge immediately.

We found out that Extensions will arrive to Microsoft Edge from Twitter, where one user posted a screenshot of a webpage which announces this addition. Microsoft has since taken down the page, but it indicates that third-party extensions will arrive on Microsoft edge, and they will be similar to extensions on Google Chrome.

We have to use this opportunity to note you that Windows Report, and all other similar sites use these probably annoying ads as the main source of revenue. And besides the satisfaction of knowing that we helped you to solve a certain Windows-related problem or delivered you an important piece of information, we also need to earn money in order to develop more. Please have this in mind when you’re using an adblocking extensions to block our ads.

Speaking of extensions, which extension are you looking forward to see in Microsoft Edge once Microsoft allows it? Tell us in the comments.
