Microsoft Edge, “the faster, safer browser designed for Windows 10” is still not popular, due to a number of factors. Unlike Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge didn’t initially take the world by storm. When Microsoft Edge for Windows 10 first debuted nearly two years ago, it felt unfinished, as it didn’t support extensions, and even this year there are only a few extensions available in the Store.
But since Microsoft Edge is slowly gaining new users, the number of extensions available for the browser is likely to grow. Today, Internet Download Manager (IDM) extension for Microsoft Edge is available for download.
Developed by Tonec Inc, Internet Download Manager (IDM) for Microsoft Edge is a popular tool to increase download speeds by up to 5 times, resume and schedule downloads.
“This Microsoft Edge extension requires that IDM desktop application is installed. Integration module adds “Download with IDM” context menu item for the file links and displays Download panel over page-embedded multimedia content, providing various helper functions to the main application as well,” the Store listing reads.
Colleen Williams, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft Edge recently explained in a blog post that the company is working with developers to deliver a quality experience to users of the new browser. We “want to make sure that the extensions we do allow are high-quality and trustworthy”, the company explained.
