Here’s some more evidence that the release of the Microsoft Edge/Chromium Insider Preview build is imminent: The website that Microsoft will use for Edge add-ons has leaked.
Thanks to WalkingCat on Twitter for the link. Which has, of course, since been taken down.
But the site that was there previously closely resembles the Edge Extensions page in the Microsoft Store. Albeit one with some left-side navigation for sub-categories like Adblockers and password managers, Education, Social and entertainment, Shopping, Productivity, and For developers.
The one thing that’s odd about this to me is the name “Addons.” Today, Edge, like Chrome, uses the term Extensions to refer to this kind of thing.
Also note that this is the second major leak suggesting that we’re about to get our first peek at the Chromium-based version of Edge. Last week, documentation for the product leaked, indicating that the first release would be for 64-bit versions of Windows 10 only.
