It's possible, there are browsers like Kiwi that support it. would be great if Microsoft Edge did the same and allowed our extensions used in desktop to be used on Android phones and tablets too.

of course this needs to be considered in the process of revamping the current Edge Android version and swapping its engines.

Hi @HotCakeX, this is a great suggestion.  I will make sure that the team that does our mobile browsers see it.  Thanks - Elliot

Highlighted
Thank you, that's all I was hoping for :)
Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk I've never seen this feedback/suggestion appeared on any feedback summary post.

I'm a bit worry about the team didn't take this serious.
For users with highly customization needs, add extension support for Android/IOS is most important.
Despite Firefox for Android can do that, Chromium is better at performance.

If Edge based on chromium can satisfy users with performance, sync and extension for all major platform like Windows, MacOS and Android/IOS.

I think I will definitely choose Edge for my idiomatic browser.

Highlighted
Thanks for the support
Highlighted
This is the feature I need to switch from Chrome. The only reason I don't use other browsers that have it like Kiwi is because I need inline translation. Only Chrome and Edge do translation well. If Edge had extensions (ideally including Chrome extensions), it would have the... edge!

Once Chromium Edge comes to Linux, I'd then be in a position to switch on my laptop as well which is presumably what MS is trying to achieve in making Edge fully cross platform.
Highlighted

For Inline translation, you can use Google translate app on Android which has an overlay or even tap to translate feature, works on all apps, not only on browsers.

+1 for this feature request!
The only thing that keeps me on Firefox for Android is that it allows custom extensions, and I need Tampermonkey to for running custom user scripts.
Highlighted

In the past 2 years I switched from the following browsers in my quest to find the perfect one :)

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Brave

If Edge will ever support extensions in Android I will switch again in a heartbeat to Edge.

Highlighted
Firefox is the most decent choice in that list
1. it has extension support on mobile
2. it's not connected to Google ecosystem.
Highlighted

@HotCakeX The problem with Firefox on Android with uBlock was that is was really slow browsing experience.

Highlighted
Oh, which phone were you using if i may ask?
Highlighted

good idea

Was 2 years ago when I switched from Chrome to Firefox. I think it was a Samsung A5 at that time.

Well i'd try it again now, lots of things changed since 2 years ago.

@Elliot Kirk any update about adding the extensions feature, please..

Tested it again this week but one of the most import addons is not available that I need to access work sites.

@HotCakeX You said I should try Firefox again, so I did but the Windows 10 Account extensions is missing from there. There is only a ported version.

Highlighted
Yes that extension is only officially released for the Chromium browsers.
Microsoft thought Firefox users won't be needing it!
Highlighted
so any update from edge team about extension support? i need ublock origin and dark reader..
Highlighted

@binocry 

 

+1 on the need for Dark Reader extension in Android Edge. Or have what Android Chrome has - flag setting that adds a 'darken websites' option below the Dark Theme radio button.in Settings>Themes.

Highlighted
Or give us installed extension like edge for Android rn, but put in one menu example: Addons. Because its now somewhat messy, spread in settings. And I do not like Adblock Plus because it eats in CPU and RAM and do not like Acceptable Ads BS
Highlighted

Yeah adblock plus is useless, though it feels better now to browser in Edge because they added Tracking Prevention from desktop to Android

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/where-is-tracking-prevention-in-edge-beta-for-and...

Highlighted
Not that useless, but need turn off acceptables ads (i dont trust ADP so much; there was a rumor that ADP received bribery from Google to keep ads) then it working fine. What i really dont like it because ADP cpu & ram hogs. Really do not I understand why not use ublock origin that proved its commitment in blocking ads.
Highlighted
Oh, good thread,
I use kiwi on android because of extension support, and support for external download manager, and tbh kiwi is much much faster than any of the browsers out there I tried.
I use edge chromium as my default browser on my desktop. Main problem I got is sync, and that's really a big problem. I would happily switch to edge android if they add extension & ext. download manager support in their browser.
For that time being, If anyone knows any workaround to tackle this sync problem,???
Highlighted
Highlighted
You misunderstood, I was talking about syncing between edge chromium on desktop & kiwi on android. they don't sync because they are completely different browsers. But I wanna know if there is any workaround except for export and import.
Highlighted
Oh okay, well there are extensions that sync favorites, for passwords you can use password manager extensions
Highlighted
Which extension can sync my bookmarks? Can you suggest some? I only need favorites synced & not any other thing. I use Bitwarden for password storage, I don't use edge's password storage. Suggest some good extension which can sync bookmarks.
Highlighted
Highlighted
Not working correctly on Kiwi, No bookmarks were synced.
Highlighted
kiwi can import bookmark from html file right?
Highlighted
Yes, it can. but don't you think it would exhaustive and non-practical to first export bookmarks from edge desktop than transfer to phone then import each time I update my bookmarks in desktop.... and it's not all, I would also loose the ability to cross platform my browsing, like I am browsing something on android, but later wants to browse it on desktop? How would I do that, either I would have to search for that on internet from scratch, or try import export. What if there are more than 1 items... and so on...
Highlighted
I think to have an easier way, you need to switch browsers on phone. gotta choose between extensions and easy favorite syncing
Highlighted
I knew and have already tried that way you thinking about, that's why I am asking for extension support in edge on android.
