How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Support browser_url_overrides to allow customized net tab page, etc. (since users can't set their own choice of new tab page...)

Edge currently offers very few options for controlling the new tab experience, and the ones it does have are... not popular, judging by the Windows Insider feedback. Allowing extensions to override things like New Tab page would simultaneously address this concern and allow more Chrome extensions to be ported, making Edge a much nicer browser to use.

        Please allow Momentum extension. I agree with the others the inability to use momentum makes edge difficult for me to use.

        Straight up, I will not be switching to Edge till they allow extensions like Momentum. Microsoft, please fix this.

        I am retrying Edge as my default but not supporting Momentum is a big check on the no side. Please update

        Bringing Momentum to Microsoft Edge will be very ideal for a better experience to the user. Thank you for your consideration.

        One of the main reasons MS Edge is NOT my default browser is because you won't allow me to use Momentum on it. If you want more customers, you need to allow us to customize our experience.

        Another supporter for allowing new-tab extensions. A significant reason I like Chrome is because of Momentum. It's a terrific mood-setter for the day, and having Momentum would definitely cause me to switch over to Edge as a primary driver.

        Momentum and similar extensions should be available on Microsoft edge browser.

        Stop forcing people to use the bing home page, it does not help the activity of bing and it only prevents you from gaining more users. Please allow developers to have more freedom with extensions.

        I love the fuel efficiency of Microsoft Edge.
        However, I usually use Chrome to use Momentam.
        Momentum on Microsoft Edge Please.

        I would be more inclined to transition from Chrome or Firefox to Edge if I could get Momentum as a New Tab / Homepage. I've already started using Edge instead of Chrome for work and home and getting that ability to customize my New Tab page with an extension would be icing on the cake.

        Edge is great and I love using it when it comes to doing my work, but Momentum is so important in my life as it helps me to keep in tracks of what I need and get all of my work done in time that I actually had to stop using Edge because I can't have Momentum on my New Tab. Momentum To Do list helps me execute my work nicely but without it in Edge, I would just have to use Google Chrome.
