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.

        The momentum dashboard is one of the best extensions I have used, like others have mentioned I won't use Edge as my default browser until I can use Momentum on it. Hope this can be included in the near future. Thanks.

        Here for Momentum. I won't use Edge regularly until Momentum is available.

        Momentum is a great app, it allows me to keep those sites I use most at my finger tips. The added tasks scheduler that allows upcoming tasks to be displayed upfront on my home screen is an added positive feature.

        I want to use Momentum Dashboard as my New Tab page. I use it all the time on Chrome.

        Please let momentum access new tab rights. A lot of people I know want to make the change to edge. However, momentum is a big part of what they use, hence preventing them from making the change. Please allow momentum. Please

        I want to switch over to Edge. I've noticed that it performs quite a bit better than Chrome on my new laptop. My only hesitation has been the lack of compatibility with my favorite Chrome apps, including Momentum. Please allow apps to override the new tab experience so Momentum can develop an app for Edge.
