Microsoft just added a brand new extension to its browser, Microsoft Edge. The company added an extension for the MEGA cloud file storage and sharing service.

The team from MEGA made sure to note the fact that any MEGA URL will be captured by the application and remain just local. In other words, there will be no JavaScript loaded from their servers.

MEGA is a cloud storage and file hosting service that was created by Mega Limited. The website is based in New Zealand, and it was launched back on January 19, 2013.

The extension will let you install MEGA into Microsoft Edge browser. The MEGA secure cloud storage provides users 50 GB of storage space for free.

This brand new extension that was just added will bring a few benefits such as making it easier to access the service, reducing loading times, improving the download performance and strengthening security.

The feature that is the most advertised by MEGA is that all files are encrypted locally before they are uploaded. As we already said, you will get 50 GB of storage space for free, and if you choose the paid plan, you can get up to 8 TB for the paid accounts.

Millions of users registered on Mega

Mega has around 50 million registered users in over 245 countries, and there are more than 20 billion files that have been uploaded to this service by now. According to the MEGA team, the website works with all major current browsers. Besides the Edge extension, Mega also released a browser plugin extension that is called MEGA Chrome Extension back in 2015, and this was updated on May 24, 2017. There is also an extension released for Firefox as well.

You can get the MEGA extension for Microsoft Edge by heading to the Microsoft Store right now.
