I would like to add your post with some of my favorite extensions I use regularly with Microsoft Edge.
- Dark Reader
Excellent add-on for darkening a website which does not offer a native dark mode option. Highly customisable add-on regarding how the dark mode looks (contrast, brightness, etc.), it even offers to integrate with the system color mode (light or dark) or scheduling with time.
- AdGuard Adblocker
I absolutely love this adblocker. You can choose your own filters, even choose certain elements to block on a website.

What I like he most which saves a lot of hassle is Note Web Clipper & Night Eye to work late at night with lights switched off, if you are into research then these might be game changers for sure.

The Outlook extension no longer works. I have to sign-in to reauthenticate and the page just loads/spins continuously and never finishes signing in. Most of the reviews left state the same thing so it's not unique to myself, just fyi.
Can you point me to someone who can help?
