Neowin has learned a bit more about these extensions and how Microsoft plans to make its browser attractive for developers. Spartan will be able to use Chrome extensions and, while we are not sure if they will work 100% natively, the way extensions have been implemented is nearly identical to that of Chrome which will make it a simple process for developers to make their extensions work on Spartan.
Interesting. I’m not a heavy extensions users – FlashBlock and AdBlock – but I know many people are.
Good move. Easier for extension developers, easier for users. FWIW it may hurt Firefox, which has its own extension mechanism. Unlikely a goal, more like a nice (for Microsoft) side effect.
