Microsoft Edge received support for extensions with the Windows
10 Anniversary Update, and ever since then, the developers have
published new extensions for the browser. Microsoft Edge still
has fewer extensions than Google Chrome but the software giant
last year said that it’s really not a bad thing.
Avast, one of the top antivirus makers out there,
has released a new price comparison extension for
Microsoft Edge, Windows 10’s default web browser. The extension
called SafePrice is from award-winning antivirus firm
Avast but it’s not in any way related to antivirus solutions,
the extension is basically supposed to help users find the best
deals on the internet.
You can install Avast’s SafePrice extension in Microsoft Edge
and find best deals and coupons for your favourite products.
It’s worth noting that Avast has also released the extension
for Google Chrome, and it’s a decent solution to
find better deals while you shop online.
Security company Avast launched the extension for Microsoft
Edge to help users find deals from the trustworthy and
reputable shopping website.
“Avast SafePrice will automatically check every other
trustworthy, reputable shopping website and give you a
comprehensive list of the best online deals and free coupons.
Then, all you have to do is click on the deal you want, and
presto, we’ll take you there and you can finish your purchase,”
the company explains the extension.
Avast SafePrice works in a pretty straightforward way, and
it automatically checks for better deals for the products you
want to purchase online. The extension is completely free
and you can download it from
the Microsoft Store.
The extensions available for Microsoft Edge
is substantially lower than in the case of third-party
alternatives, but this slow development is not the result of
developers neglecting the browser.
The latest data offered by NetMarketShare claims that Google
Chrome is the leading browser with a share of 62.85 percent.
Microsoft Edge, on the other hand, is fourth with just 4.26
percent market share. The discontinued Internet Explorer holds
11.82 percent, and Mozilla Firefox is third with 9.92
percent market share.
Microsoft is betting big on Edge browser, and the browser is
also available on non-Windows 10 devices. Do you use Microsoft
