Out of all that's new in Edge, Chrome extension support is undoubtedly the most interesting. With this, you'll be able to install existing Chrome extensions in the browser. And that's one feature which might be enough to make users finally switch to Edge.

So if you've been aching to try out the new Microsoft Edge, but don't want to give up on your favorite Chrome extensions, let's take a look at how you can install them in the new browser.

Install Microsoft Edge

Before we get to installing Chrome extensions on Edge, let's first install Edge on your system:

Step 1: Head to the new Edge Insider site to download your desired build.

Step 2: Here, choose from one of the two available builds and download the installer.

Note: I'd recommend downloading the Developer build which is a bit more stable when compared to the Canary build. You can download the Canary build if you want to stay on the bleeding edge of development, but make sure you're prepared to deal with random bugs.

Step 3: Just double-click on the package and let the installer do its thing.

A new Edge window will open up as soon as the browser is installed. Just breeze past the initial setup, choose a layout and you're good to go.

Isn't that simple? While you can get many extensions from the Microsoft Store as well, there aren't quite as many options. That's why this is currently the best way to install Chrome extensions on Edge.

Import Chrome Extensions to Microsoft Edge

If you can't find an extension on the Chrome Web Store or if you want to install a particular version of an extension that you've got on Chrome, you'll need to follow these steps to install the extensions from your computer:

Step 1: In the Microsoft Edge Extensions settings, turn on Developer mode by clicking on the toggle.

Step 2: Now, to locate the directory where your extensions are installed, open up a new tab in Chrome, enter chrome://version in the address bar and press enter.

Step 3: The Profile Path listed in the version page is where all your Chrome extensions are installed. Navigate to that directory, and in case you don't find the App Data folder, make sure you turn on the Show hidden files setting.

Step 5: Enter the Profile Path in the dialog box and select the Extension you wish to install from the folder. The extensions in the folder can be identified using their extension ID.

Step 8: Now that you know the ID of the extension you wish to install head back to Edge, open up the extension folder and select the first folder inside. Then click on Select Folder.

That's it. If you follow all the steps carefully, the extension should install in an instant. Since this is such a lengthy process, I'd recommend you to use it only if you aren't able to find a particular extension on the Chrome Web Store.

Now that you've got all your Chrome extension on Edge, I'm sure it'll be easier for you to switch to the new browser. Microsoft is expected to roll out a more stable beta build of the browser sometime soon, and I'm definitely looking forward to it. I just hope the company adds an easier way to import extensions from Chrome for those of us who have too many extensions installed.
