One of the more welcome additions to Edge in the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition is the ability to run extensions, those add-on applets that extend a browser’s capabilities. While Edge is limited so far in the number of extensions available, particularly compared to Google’s Chrome browser, some popular and useful extensions are available that make Edge far more competitive.
Another extension has been released to the Windows Store, the Microsoft Personal Shopping Assistant. The extension is developed as a Microsoft Garage project, and is also available for Chrome and Opera, and is aimed at capturing and saving information on product pages and making it easier to do your shopping.
Here’s the app description:
Your personal assistant for a smart, productive and enjoyable shopping experience. Automatically organize the various product pages you visit. Add to favorites and get notified on price changes. Make smart choices by comparing products across sellers. Get back to your shopping flow, on the web and on your phone.
This is a Microsoft Garage project. The Microsoft Garage is an outlet for experimental projects. Learn more at
