Re: Microsoft Edge

Ask Microsoft. They are restricting apps to there new browser. Better off using Firefox or Chrome. They are both more customizable with hundreds of extensions and apps. Everything has to be downloaded via the Windows App store. Go in there and you will see that there only a few extensions for Edge.

Re: Microsoft Edge

@Ole Feilberg,

Things will change only when MS change their mind, when the company (MS) truly take care of those votes.

Based on information Microsoft has provided to date (12/22/2016), several browser-based protection and identity features that are provided in Norton products are not compatible with Edge, including Identity Safe, Norton Toolbar, Safe Search, Safe Web, Antiphishing, and Scam Insight.
Microsoft has indicated that it will continue to improve Edge and will allow more browser extensions in the near future.

Thx :)
