Today Bitwarden announced the availability of an extension for the Microsoft Edge web browser. The free open source password manager extension has always been available on Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and only now makes its way to Edge.

While today’s availability appears to bring the total list of Edge extensions to 61, the developers have been careful to note that due to API limitations and bugs in Edge, some features of the Bitwarden Edge extension have been disabled and will not function the same as they do on other web browsers. Performance of the extension can also suffer, but the developer has hope that the Edge team will “will continue to make progress with extensions and Bitwarden’s integration will improve over time.”

Here is a bit more on Bitwarden.

bitwarden is the easiest and safest way to store all of your logins and passwords while conveniently keeping them synced between all of your devices. bitwarden stores all of your logins in an encrypted vault that syncs across all of your devices. Since it’s fully encrypted before it ever leaves your device, only you have access to your data. Not even the team at bitwarden can read your data, even if we wanted to. Your data is sealed with AES-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and PBKDF2 SHA-256.

Just last week Grammarly also launched an extension for Microsoft Edge, so the list of Edge extensions is always growing. You can find the download link for Bitwarden below.
