Microsoft’s build machine is more active than ever, rolling out build after build. As the Anniversary Update is drawing near, Microsoft wants to perfect the Windows 10 experience and is trying to push as many updates and new features as possible so that Insiders can thoroughly test them out before the final release.

The Edge browser is one of Microsoft’s favorite children, and lately the company managed to roll out a series of important improvements and extensions to Edge. The new Breeze extension now allows Edge users to launch new tabs more easily,  the Office online extension lets users create and modify Office documents straight from the browser without having to install the Office package, while the LastPass extension helps you to better manage all your passwords under a single one, LastPass master password.

This month, the Edge browser also received huge security patches, as Microsoft anticipates possible hacker attacks. In its never-ending wish to bring Edge to the spotlight, Microsoft also published the results of a battery experiment, claiming that its browser consumes 70% less battery than Chrome, and 15% less battery than Opera.

The latest improvement brought to Edge is the Evernote extension, allowing you to connect to the note-taking platform and write down everything that comes to your mind. The extension is available only to Insiders running the latest Windows 10 build 13472.

The extension allows you to clip the web pages you want to keep, save them in Evernote and easily find them on any device.  You can also highlight and share text from a website or a particular article. Special clip formats are available for three websites: LinkedIn, Amazon and YouTube.

The good news is that the Evernote extension is here, the bad news is that some features are not fully functional, as Microsoft explains:

There are a few known issues with the Evernote Web Clipper extension for Microsoft Edge. The Evernote Web Clipper might not load on certain websites and there is no thumbnail image when clipping bookmarks. There are also various visual issues.

Have you already downloaded the extension? It is working properly on your computer?
