Ad and tracker blocking extension Ghostery on its way to Microsoft Edge

Mark Coppock

Microsoft continues to make headway with adding extensions support to its Edge browser. Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14342 made the Windows Store the official source for extensions, and it’s looking like the extensions community is starting to embrace Microsoft’s newest browser. Most recently, the developers of the popular ad- and tracker-blocking Ghostery extension on Chrome and other browsers has indicated that they’re working on Edge support as well (via Windows Central).

That’s good news for anyone who wants to block ads and trackers during their web sessions. It’s also great news for anyone hoping to see strong support for Edge extensions when they’re officially released in the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update. By then, it seems like some of the more important extensions will have already made their way over.
