Now, a revamp has been made to the web browser after the criticism from its users. This revamps aim to give it a new look and useful features by getting rid of its old engine block and replacing it with Chromium, which is an unusual step.

The Microsoft Edge Chromium looks impressive, not just its looks, but it also comes with the ability to import extensions from other web browsers. With this recent improvement, I think the Microsoft web browser is ready to compete with the big boys.

This article will help you get started with the Edge Chromium and how you can install/add your favourite Google Chrome Extensions. Let’s get on with it.

They are some questions you might want to ask before adding your Chrome extension to Edge Chromium browser. We took out our time to answer one of such questions; check it out below:

Will installing Google Chrome extensions on Edge Chromium have any adverse effect on the performance of the browser?

This is one of the questions that may arise in your mind when you saw this article, but we’ll do our best to put you on the right track.

To answer this question, installing an extension outside Microsoft Store might not be safe as it has not to been tried before on the Edge Browser. Also, you might come across some glitches and bugs that may affect your browser’s performance.

We recommend you get trusted extensions on your browsers so as not to blame anyone in case there are adverse effects on your performance. If you choose to continue, i would suggest you do this with a few extensions before you add more.

How to Add/Enable Google Chrome Extensions in Microsoft Edge Chromium

  • Open the Microsoft Edge browser on your computer by clicking on the shortcut icon.
  • Click on the three dots located at the top right corner of the browser to go to the Settings page.

Enabling ‘Allow extensions from other stores’ option will result in a pop up saying “Extensions installed from sources other than the Microsoft Store are unverified, and may affect browser performance. For Microsoft verified extensions, visit the Microsoft Store.” click ‘Allow’ to continue.
