I have a few questions:
1. How a user will get the new edge browser without downloading it manually? will it be installed with a service pack or windows update?
2. If the user had an extension installed on the old Edge browser, will it appear automatically in the new edge after its migrated from the old one (assuming it is in the new edge extension store)?
if so, how will it know which extension to install?
3. Continuing the question above, if the extension in the old edge browser had some storage (local or sync) saved. Will it be migrated to the new edge browser after the new extension is installed there?
Thanks for the help!

@HotCakeX thanks for the quick response!
2. how does it know which extension to install from the new edge extension store? when I will upload the extension to the new store will I have to connect it somehow?
3. Are you sure about it? the users will lose all the data saved in the extension?
can you pinpoint me to a location where its mentioned?

Hi @HotCakeX I think I didnt explain my question correctly
What I mean is that if in the classic edge browser my extension had storage under chrome.storage.sync or chrome.storage.local, when the new edge browser is installed with my extension, will the extension have the data from the previous edge saved under chrome.storage.sync or chrome.storage.local?

@HotCakeX its an API of the extension you can save or get data:
in the classic edge it was browser.storage.sync and browser.storage.local

@HotCakeX its the same API basically, just its implemented differently for edge and chrome (or the new edge browser which is based on chromium).
What I meant was that if the data that is saved by these API's in the classic edge will be migrated to the new edge so I would be able to access it with the new API in the new edge
