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.

    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.

    momentum dash is not on edge. so i have to use google's chrome instead of microsoft's edge. pls pls pls pls allow it.

  • Greg Hicks commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Was having some trouble logging into a few of my sites recently with Chrome so tried Edge to see if it was the sites or my browser and Edge logged in and worked flawlessly. Now I am noticing some nice features of Edge (and it seems to be quite quick to boot) that have me using it more and more. The Momentum extension would be just one more feather in the cap allowing me to switch more permanently.

    Please allow the extension of Momentum on Microsoft Edge! Instead I am using Chrome which is allows for more applications. I prefer Edge for a number of reasons such as speed and usability, however with limitations on apps such as Momentum I will continue to use Chrome.

    momentum dash is not on edge. so i have to use google's chrome instead of microsoft's edge. what do you think about it? so pls. allow this extension!

  • Joe Pecinovsky commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I'm a momentum dash user and can only use it on chrome. I'd much rather be using edge daily instead of chrome, there are several things about edge that I really enjoy over chrome and prefer Microsoft over Google. This is the only problem I'm having since Momentum helps organize my time and life. Edge needs to approve the override for this extension

    I want the momentum extension. The New tab experience on edge isn't great - too messy.
