Oh boy! What innovation they are showing! /s

When are they going to add capability for extensions?

Why on earth did MS make this the default browser in Windows 10 when it was only half baked? If that much. I read somewhere that you could not change the download area on your computer in Edge unless you did a registry hack…so if you were using a small SSD for your operating system, you could not easily avoid putting your downloads into that small hard drive. They may have fixed this since the first release last summer, but dang, what a piece of fei-oo!

Agree, extensions must be added and it has so far turned out to be only a ‘half-baked’ product. [B]Soon?[/B] In other words, [B]soon[/B] it will have features available for years in other browsers… [B]Soon[/B] it will probably be able to download from all sites as well :bigsmile: (I do not know if it is fixed, could be…)

The fact they are adding in ridiculously basic things like this so far after release tells you that even if extensions were supported there’s a ton of other things (or lack of things) that are still holding Edge back.

I would have though such a feature would have been added right from the get-go. Then again, this is Microsoft we’re talking about: they don’t give a crap about anyone’s rights to privacy. Still, considering Edge is supposed to be better than Internet Explorer, and considering that IE 8 could wipe history, cache, cookies, etc automatically, that doesn’t bode well for Edge.
