Microsoft wants to build ad-blocking capabilities into the next version of its Edge browser, ZDNet reported.
Adding ad-blocking is the fourth-highest priority for the Microsoft Edge development team.
It is preceded by:
- Extensions and plugin functionality, with an extension/plugin store.
- Bring back the download prompt and “Save As…” on PC.
- Address reports that Edge crashes or hangs frequently on desktop.
According to the report, work on the download prompt is finished, while plugin functionality will be included with the next version of the browser.
The next version of Microsoft Edge will launch with the 2016 Anniversary Update of Windows 10 (codenamed Redstone), due out between May-September 2016.
